I Am Back


I am back - did you miss me - I was on a two week road trip with a couple friends - drove to the Florida Keys - where a friend has purchased a little home in a mobile home park for retirement - we pulled down the boat and supplies.  Here little home is now ready for their three week visit in January - she won't have to work the entire three weeks she is down there.  We went to Key West one day - visited with a former co worker in Miami, spent time in Savannah, GA and also toured the Biltmore House in Asheville, NC.  It was a fun trip.  I am tired.  When I have downloaded my pictures I will share them - if any of them are any good.

I did miss my paper and stamps so was excited to make a card today - it is time to start making cards for Valentine Days for Operation Write Home - I will try to make more general LOVE cards so they can be used anytime.  I based the design on the sketch on Stars and Stamps and it also fits the Wednesday challenge for Valentines Day/Love.

The stamp is from Unity - I was sent this stamp for having a card published using one of their stamps in a magazine.  I thought it was a perfect stamp for Operation Write Home cards.  It has some other great sentiments that will work.  I am also entering the card in the Fabulous Friends challenge on Unity Stamps. 

It felt good to play with some paper - now I need to go do some laundry and get things ready for work.  Everyone enjoy the remainder of your day.
