We're back!

After a 4 hour drive, which should have been a 2 hour drive, my DH and I have returned home from a fun vacation with my son and his family.  The suitcases remain unpacked, but I have been to my mother's and the grocery store.  Dinner is cooking on the stove.  I have opened the important mail... a package containing 2 cute High Hopes stamps I won in a challenge at One Crazy Stamper, some fab die cuts from my friend, Judie, (thanks a bunch, they are gorgeous!), and a note from a very dear friend.  And, happily, I now have ink on my fingers.

It was really tough deciding which challenge I wanted to catch up on first.  I decided to combine the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #120 with the Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #155 and make a birthday card I need for my grandson's 14th birthday tomorrow.  
(All products and stamps used are CTMH)

I am also entering these challenges: 
Crafty Friends Challenge #12 - Clean and Simple

Dinner is smelling pretty good and should be almost ready to serve.   Tomorrow, I'll tackle the Mojo Monday Sketch.
And, after dinner, I imagine I'll work on those suitcases.   Unfortunately, they don't unpack themselves.
Nice to be home.
