And the songbirds keep singing like they know the score....

Hey yall! I'm sorry I've been MIA, but prepping for the SCS Shoebox Swap was all I could handle, much less an unexpected bout with bronchitis! ICK!

So you know you're sick when the mailman brings a set of Copic markers to your door and you decide you'd rather stay in bed than bring them inside. Ughhhhhhh....that was me today. Hopefully I'll be better soon.

As promised a lonnnnnnnnnnnggggg time ago...here is my card for the Shoebox Swap that was last Saturday. I had such a great time meeting up with friends and stamping. And boy, did we stamp!

The swap was from 10 AM to 9 PM, and I think we are all still recovering. The cards were just fabulous, and it was awesome to build up my stash again.

Ok, I'm going back to bed, but I'll post the MFTeaser that I have done tomorrow. Yall are going to love the new sets being released on Wednesday!

Have a happy Monday!

Stamps: True Friend
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Kraft
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Pumpkin & Olive Marker, 5/8" Pumpkin Ribbon (Offray), Paisley Embossing Folder, Mat Pack, Paper Piercer, Distressor
