follow your bliss...

Olo!

I'm still slowly on the mend here... everyday I feel a bit less like the walking dead and more like myself... thank goodness. I'm tellin' ya, it hasn't been pretty, LOL! ;)

And luckily for me, I still have some cards left over from the SOG Nouveau Girl release that I haven't shared here on the ol' blog yet. So even when all I've wanted to do was curl up on the couch with a furry friend or two, I've still got something to post.
I went 100% frou-frou girly girl with this one featuring Nouveau Bliss. She just brought to mind an ancient goddess so I couldn't resist going to town with the ribbon roses and ruffles. I thought the soft textures and color palette would work nicely to help bring to mind her flowing robes and serene beauty. The bliss part of the sentiment is actually the stamp that comes with her, I just added in my own hand written 'follow your' with a black pen to change it up a bit.

Okey dokey, I think that's about all I've got. Thanks for stopping by and tomorrow I've got another SOG surprise that you won't want to miss! :)
