Bad news & Great news: Carrying the Torch!

Hi All,

Some bad news and
some Great news.

Bad news:
I'm so sorry to have been missing so long.
I'm on day seven of a migraine marathon, (UGH)...


I'm back to blogging now
with some
Great news:

The Amber Ink gals, Amber & Pam, have asked
me to join them to take up the torch:

Which is a fun way of saying there will be a lot more crafty
projects on here this month than there has been of late,
& they'll be made using Amber Ink's sweet images & ipaper.Link
Best of all, will be the fun of getting to know
these inspiring ladies
(my fellow torch-taker-uppers):
The Paper Princess; Paula; Suzanne; and Adrian!

Curious about what the gals who are passing on the
torch have created?
You can check out their
lovely projects in yesterday's Amber Ink blog post.
