I'm Back...

My postings over the last couple of months have been very far & few between.  I do hope to be back & posting more often.  Things have been a little crazy with me of late, but fingers crossed it is "full steam ahead".

Today's card has been created for my Volunteer Class we had this arvo.  It is also a perfect way of using all that retired DSP that we have on hand but don't want to get rid of at the time.  In fact, this paper is from a couple of years ago & yes, I hadn't even cut into it.

Well, you will be happy to know that I have created a couple of cards from it which means that there is not that much of it left - doing a happy dance!

Have you noticed there is no stamping on this card.  BUT, I did use MDS for the "Happy Birthday". 

I originally found today's card on Pinterest & have it sitting there for some time to do.  Thank you so much for your inspiration!

Please note, the Green used in this card is not SU!
