I don't think the photo shows the shine on the sun so I'll risk a close-up on my embossing skills (boy did I have to fight the embossing on the sentiment). Hopefully this shows the shine a bit better. Sorry for the photo quality, I don't have a photo station set up yet.
And here is the sketch. It is a really fun one with lots of possibilities. There is still time to play along.
Some of you may be wondering where I have been. Well, life got in the way we had some surprises and some health issues (we are in good shape on that front now). We had the usual sad and happy times along the way. From a happy perspective we celebrated my parent's 50th wedding anniversary with a lovely party, we now have a great nephew, our niece was married, our son and his lovely girlfriend are now engaged and we had a lovely vacation in Arizona to celebrate a cousin's wedding. The biggest change with the most impact was that we unexpectedly bought a new house. We were not planning on moving, but it was time. At the old house we had started a remodeling project which eliminated a bedroom so we had to put the bedroom back and get the house ready for market. Happily, we did sell without being on the market too long. But it has been a very long road and we are now settled in the new place and loving it.
I sure do miss my time in my craft room and I'll let you know that it's tough to get back into the swing of things, but this challenge sure helped me along.
