I'm back!

Hi Stampers!
I've missed everyone.  As you can see, I've been away from my blog and creating.  I was in an accident the end of August and have been recovering...slowly.  I will try to post as often as possible, but I cannot stay on the computer for long without problems with my elbow and back. Thanks to all your get well wishes.  I greatly appreciate all your prayers.  I have been blessed with all of you.
