Life has gotten in the way.

I'm so sorry that I haven't written in a while.  A week ago I went to a two day crop and ended up sick on Monday with a fever and cold.  Ended up having to go back to work on Wednesday and put in a lot of hours in two days.  Now my dad is back in the hospital, so it is never ending.

 I have sent this card off to my son who is going on deployment December for about 3 months.  That is three month of silence as he is on a submarine!

Here is a card that I have made for the Mingle contest on a Magnolia site that I belong too.  Hope that you like it.

Absolutely darling. I think your Tilda is so cute and the design is great. He'll love it.

Things have been the pits for you lately I see!
That is not good. I hope all the hours at work won't set you back on getting better.
I don't know how you can survive 3 months of silence with you son away??
I think you picked the perfect Tilda to make his card with. He will know you were wishing to send him lots of letters full of love. Very pretty rhinestones and punched area.
He will smile every time he looks at it :o)
Thanks so much for joining us in our first Magnolia-licious CHALLENGE BLOG.

Oh Shelley...what an adorable card! And this Tilda is just perfect...3 months of silence from your son...oh my!! No email either?? My thoughts are with you, sweetie. Hang in there...hopefully the time will fly by for you. I bet this care will keep a smile on your son's face during the next 3 months!! Such pretty coloring...and I was really drawn to the ribbon and the lacy edge punch!!
