It's good to be back blogging more regularly! Traveling this summer, along with some issues with my sweetie's Parkinson's, proved a distraction, but things are starting to settle back to normal. Which is good, since the sixth book in my Shelter Bay series is due in January. And have you ever noticed how time flies even faster during the holidays?
The Operation Write Home Stars and Stamps midweek challenge calls for an anniversary or love card, so I decided to go with red and hearts. I chose OWH sketch #115 because the narrow strip was perfect for the fence I wanted to use.
The stamp, which I colored with Copics, is from Penny Black, the card stock is Cherry Cobbler from Marks' Finest Papers, the paper is from Echo Park, and the picket fence is a Martha Stewart punch. (Btw, the glow around the hedgehog isn't as dark as it appears in this photo.)
Since this blog's also about my writing life, I wanted to share the way cool ad that Penguin Books ran in USA Today yesterday to celebrate their annual READ PINK program that donates $25,000 to breast cancer research. Doesn't The Homecoming look pretty with its pink ribbon on the cover? Since I have too many friends who've battled this horrible disease and -- yay!!! -- won, I was honored to have The Homecoming reissued as one of this year's READ PINK books.
Thanks for visiting! Comments are always appreciated and I hope you'll drop by again tomorrow for my Friday photo!
