Good to be Back Home Again

I've been thinking of the John Denver song today about "hey, it's good to be back home again!" And after my morning didn't go as planned I decided it was time to take some time out and color something up. I have a laundry list of things I need to do to catch up but this one was for me.


Of course after staying with family the last 2 weeks I need to send a few thank yous out for all the hospitality. So I am getting started on those. The image is from Eureka Stamps called Scarecrow and Sunflowers. I colored the image with a variety of different markers and then die cut it with one of the dies from MFT Blueprints 3.  I inked the edges with Fired Brick DI. The designer paper is from my scraps as is the ribbon. I cut the Thanks from a scrap and used MFT Many Thanks die. The thanks is raised with red fun foam off the card. I am entering these challenges:

It is good to be back home again and back to crafting. I did crochet a rug while I was gone and started on two hats for the twins for winter. Have to finish them up soon. Thanks for stopping by. I hope to have a blog candy posted tomorrow for my 1500 blog post and my birthday celebration. Hope you'll come back to check it out! Now back to catching up.

Seriously, it has been two weeks already?! I swear I just wished you a happy vacation a couple days ago. Jeepers, time flies quickly and my mom says it gets even worse as you get older. I can't imagine it flying quicker than it already does now!

Sweet card, love the sketch but what I am really here for is to wish you a very Happy Birthday my dear friend! Wishing you all the joy and happiness you so richly deserve, today and for the years ahead!

Hugs,
Lisa
