Yeah yeah yeah, I know

It's been forever, and y'all probably have given up on me. Heck, I about gave up on me. But what can you do when you have no motivation (and a seriously slow laptop?). You do what my kids HATE to do: you take a break (this is because 'take a break' is a euphemism for a time out for my kids, but I digress). But when the break is over, you get back to doing what you were doing before the break and hopefully appreciate it even more. So we'll see how that goes. Things should be getting very exciting, stamping-wise, in the very near future, like this week. I got the sneak peek stuff and the retired list from Stampin'Up today, and I'm planning on expediting an order so I'll have a BRAND NEW catalog in my hands by the weekend. AND I'm going to the Great American Scrapbook convention on Thursday (not to buy (much) but to get some fantastic and inspiring new ideas, of course!)
So since I've been gone so long, I'm sharing the outside AND inside of a card today. This cheery little pop-up card has been sitting on my desk for a while, but this Bold Blossom stamp set made it into the summer mini so it's still current - woo hoo!
