Now, I am having really bad back problems, that is why I am not posting everyday. I would love to do it, but my health is first and I hope you understand this. I have days I am feeling much better than others, but the pain still there. What I am doing is resting as much as I can so I can come back in my  stamping routine as soon as possible!!

Hope you have a great day!
