I'M BACK!!!!!!!! I'm finally in the stamping groove again, after not posting in almost two months! :(

If you're wondering where I've been, well, my hubby & I have been a *little* busy lately. After waiting several years (yeah, YEARS), we've finally bought our first home!


We're still unpacking and trying to get settled, but it's definitely feeling like home now :)

One thing I'm SUPER excited about is that I have my FIRST EVER CRAFT ROOM! So, this card I'm sharing with you today is extra special because it's the first card I made in my new craft room *trying to contain my excitement, lol*

I decided to participate in CAS-ual Fridays current challenge, Let's Strip. I really love the DT samples, where everyone used strips of color or pattern in their cards.

I made this for my step-mom, who is currently going through some health issues, including hip replacement surgery. I wanted to make something bright and colorful that she could have in her hospital room to lift her spirits :)

I appreciate you taking the time to stop in today! I'll be back soon with more posts!
