Hey Sabrina! Not only have I been missing your blog, but I can not get over all the amazing cards you have created since I last visited you! WOW! Soooo much fabulous inspiration! As always, everything is just gorgeous!!! I have been super busy lately and until my kids are back in school I won't have much stamping time, but somehow I am going to try to get in on the texture challenge. Like you, this one will be easy for me, as I LOVE texture! Oh, already the wheels are spinning in my head :-)
I have loved looking at all your beautiful cards... hopefully I will be able to keep up with your blog posts better in the coming weeks!
Hugs, Sarah
