Inspired by Stamping April Blog Hop!

 Hello sweeties and welcome to my blog today!  I'm soooooo excited -- I actually feel 'well enough' after my hysterectomy surgery two weeks & two days ago to get back in my stamp room for a little bit and make something pretty!  That is a BIG step forward for me -- yippiee!!!  It's been 18 days since I set foot in my stamp room to create anything ... it really felt so wonderful to be back among my stampy treasures!  My stamina is not what it was prior to surgery, but this too shall pass!

So, I'm here to share a sweet little something I had the pleasure to design for the April Design Team Blog Hop for Inspired by Stamping!

I designed this card using the Heartfelt Gratitude stamp set ... love it!!

So springy and fun!  Please be sure to 'hop' on over to see what the other teamies have created for your inspiration today:

... and do pop on over to the Inspired by Stamping Shop -- Joanna is hosting a a 20% off selected items moving sale and free shipping on orders placed Thursday, Friday and Saturday!  WOW!!

Thanks so much for visiting today ... it really feels so good to be getting back to what I love to do.  Now off to have a little nap ... I'm exhausted!!!
