Not a good idea!

Sunday morning we left the warmth of Florida and Monday evening we returned to the freezing temperatures of Pennsylvania.  
What were we thinking?

Yesterday, while it was snowing and sleeting, my granddaughter and great granddaughter stopped by and I got to see Laila walking.  And today my son and grandsons visited.  Family and friends bring you home.

It's a bit difficult getting back into the rhythm of things.  I've filled the cookie jar and baked a cake.  I guess it's time to get back to some crafting.  The obvious place to start is with my 2 weekly favorites:  Mojo Monday and Atlantic Hearts Sketches.  Both sketches this week are fairly simple.

First, I've used a Bentley Bear stamp that was a freebie from Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine for my Mojo Monday Contest #387 Card. (It was nice to come home and find 3 issues of my craft magazines, a package of skittles I had ordered, and some stamps that I had won before Christmas in the pile of mail.)  I stamped the image 3 times and paperpieced it onto the card.  And I used 3 of the new skittles.  

My second card is for the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #97 and uses CTMH products. 

I have one more card to show you.  I made it before we left Florida but didn't get a chance to post it.  For this card I used the current sketch #304 at Catch the Bug Stella Says Sketch Challenge.  
I really liked the sketch but, unfortunately, had no way to print a Bugaboo image for on the card.  
Instead, I used a stamp from My Favorite Things.


  1. Glad you made it home, Debi! I've been wondering about you! Your cards are adorable! I know you're glad to be home but the weather must be a real turn-off! It's been a tough winter here.
