Hello, I'm back!

Its been 13 months since I last blogged.  I have done a few necessary cards while I have been away but not many.  In the past year I completed my BSN (yeah! Western Governor's University).  Now that I have my life back, I find myself gravitating back to my craft room.  Although I have been back making cards for the last month, this is my favorite so far and my "hello" back to the paper craft blogging world.  ( It's also for a friend that moved all the way across the country last month :P  )
