Home again. Home again.

What do you do first when you return home after being away for 2 months?  I'm referring to after you stop at the store for milk, bread and eggs; carry in all the luggage; order a pizza; and get 10 hours of much needed sleep.
So far today,  I have filled my birdfeeders; put away my makeup; dug my craft magazines out of the tub of mail my DH retrieved from the Post Office;  and made my Mojo Monday card.  I haven't unpacked my craft supplies that I took along to Florida.  That will come... eventually.  I just extracted what I needed and used my home stash for the remainder. 

While we were away, my BFF had one of those monumental birthdays.  I had her gift all bagged up before we left, ready to deliver when we got back.  Since the Mojo Monday sketch this week is square, I decided to make a gift card for on the bag.  I'm generally not too thrilled with those little scraps of paper that are on store purchased gift bags.
 Doesn't that look much better?
(You'll need to tilt your head to compare it to the sketch below.)
Above is a closeup of the 3.5" square gift card.  I used purple cs, to match the gift bag and because it is Dawne's favorite color, covered with a layer of velum.  Going through my stash, I found this great flower sticker and mounted it on yellow cs.   I punched the purple outer scalloped circle and center yellow.  The inside orange circle frame and the glitter numbers were cricut shaped from the CTMH Artiste cartridge.  Finishing touches include, a strip of CTMH shimmer trim, a butterfly brad; white pearls colored orange; and a pink and white swiss dotted ribbon to attach the notecard to the bag.

Here's the Mojo Monday Sketch #437, that I used for this card:


Ahhh...  Now what should I do?
Baking sounds kind of homey.
