What have I been up to?  Nothing exciting and I am ok with that!  And of course, I am always making cards, usually only on weekends.  That's when I have energy for a creative endeavor.

"What sweet delight a quiet life affords." 
- William Drummond 1585 - 1649

I am very fond of this quote above.  A quiet life is just my style. 😊

Also like this verse from James 1:19 --
My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry,

I've heard it said that we have 2 ears and 1 mouth for a reason.  I try to remember that daily.
Hope you are well, my friends!  Until next time!

What a fabulous line-up! Each one is as pretty as the next. All created in your marvelous "Colleen" style!

Oh, my! I enjoyed my trip to your gallery today, Colleen! You have a way with vintage-ish nature-themed beauty. You even have some rather vintage stamps mixed in with newer stamps and supplies. Love that. I enjoy my quiet life, too. Good to see you today!

Two dozen fabulous creations, Colleen! I'm glad you are doing well and able to get some crafting in on the weekends! I'm all for the quiet life.

What a treat tonight to discover your posts! These cards are ALL just stunning, Colleen, but I especially like how you handled the topiary and bow in the very last card.
