Have you given up on me yet?

Hello, faithful followers!
Have you given up on me? I hope not! As you probably know, I am in NY visiting family and friends. I am here all month, and was so busy before I left finishing 3 projects that I had to bring here for gifts. Also, my thoughtful son flew to TX to drive to NY with me. He was able to visit with us for a few days before leaving for our long drive. He drove 17 hours straight the first day, only stopping for gas and potty breaks! Here is a pic of Mike and babies!
Of course, I can't post without sharing my adorable grandson! He was so thrilled to see his Unc! He's such a happy boy!

Since arriving in NY, I have been on the go nonstop. I have been able to spend time with my sister, niece and nephew. I don't get to do that very often!

I went to see my dear friend, Leslie, her wonderful husband, Doug and their family too. We had a great time together. Her granddaughter, Iris is such a joy! She is beautiful and smart, just like her parents and grandparents! I even had the chance to see a classmate, Kim, that I hadn't seen since graduation...all of those years ago.

I know that you are thinking that I am just going on and on about my family and vacation, but...SURPRISE! I am sharing a card too. I must apologize for the poor quality. It is not the best shot, but I will make it up to you! This is a stamp set that I just love from Heartfelt Creations. They made these to go along with one of the Spellbinders sets...which I can't think of off of the top of my head...Dahlia maybe? Hmmm...don't quote me on that! I used my Versamark pencils with Gamsol on this card. The Happy Birthday is a GinaK stamp...I can't remember the name of that either! Old age gets you every time! The punch used is a Martha Stewart, which is now one of my favorites.
I hope that all is well with you and yours! The next day or so is going to be very busy! I am headed to one of my childhood BFF's tonight for a parade and BBQ. Tomorrow I am off to Buffalo to see my son and daughter-in-law. I can't wait! I am picking up Leslie and away we go! Busy and good times here in western NY! (Cooler weather than TX too!)
Hugs to all!
