Just had to say hello!!

It has been such a long time and I am missing everybody! I have my sister and her DH round for a week and I just returned from Spain which doesn't leave me much room to really concentrate and with temps in the 100F - it is hard to create let me tell you!



BUT, I do have something to share be it something very simple. I had been looking for the 'Real Dill' stamp from Hero Arts for at least five weeks and could not even find it on Ebay. I contacted HA directly and they told me that they had found one at an on-line store in France! I followed the link only to find that it was out of stock. A lady named Pia from Denmark who makes incredible cards with HA stamps picked up my SOS and told me that she had found one at a HA store in California and that she would get one for me. Well, today it arrived! At the same time I noticed a plant in my neighbors garden that looked exactly like the stamp only to find out that the dill herb grows everywhere in my surroundings.


The challenge at HA this week was to put down the phone and send a card to somebody, so this is my card for a very kind friend of mine.

Hope you are all well and see you again soon!

  7. Yes, welcome back, Jacqueline! So glad to see some of your lovely art again. Your card is gorgeous, love the grid background...and that dill stamp seems made just for you!
    (I actually am not a big dill fan because once it gets started it grows everrrrywhere and just takes over....but it smells wonderful!)
