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.

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.
