I can't believe that we are into July already, the summer is cruising by so fast already! Well after a month or so of taking a semi- break and adjusting to different medications for my menopause, I guess I'm ready to get back into the swing of things and visit my friends in blog land. I tell you, I was feeling like a depressed fool and just going through the motions around here. I had no idea that menopause could make a person feel so weird ...hot flashes, depression and no energy and for a moment nothing was helping me....just making me feel worse. Well after trying different medications, I'm starting to feel like "me" again! I also want to thank everyone that stopped by to say "hello" to me....your acts of kindness really meant a lot to me and I appreciate each and every one you!!!
Now getting back to the card, I found this sketch on Quixotic challenge blog and decided to give it a try and combined it with a patriotic theme. My image, Showtime Anya is an oldie but still a goodie and so perfect for my patriotic theme. One simple ribbon flower and a flourish of gemstones were used to embellish and ta da...the end! *ü*
Once again, I want to say a big thank you to everyone and I hope that you all have a beautiful and safe holiday weekend!
