hello there!

...these unplanned blogging breaks always seem longer than the planned ones, and they also seem more...relaxing, I think.
My eight siblings and I were scrambling this past weekend to get our annual Fathers Day album completed on time, and my sisters birthday dinner/party is tonight. Add a (first to go!) siblings wedding this week on top of all that, and I think my absence is pretty well explained for. ;)
I have been feeling naughty for not snatching some time to go blog hopping though, so I plan to do that later this night after the party. I just know you've been up to some amazing things. ;)
Meanwhile, I'll leave you with this mini card, using some new (to me) My Cute Stamps...

Paper piecing some tiny little flowers...

Then finishing off with a tiny tag and a pearl...

Well, I've gotta dash - I'll be going down on Wednesday to the area near the church where the wedding will be, and then coming back on Sunday night, so you're spared from any more annoying blog posts from this procrastinating cardmaker until then. ;)
Thanks so much for stopping in!
