I'm Back!

Seems like forever since I last posted. We finally finished up with the Reno of my scrapbooking room and I must say it looks so nice. Thank you Russell you did a great job painting the walls! They are such a nice colours, and yes son once again you were right! A perfect match for the new carpet!
After the carpet went in, I put my hubby and grandson to work moving all the furniture back in and setting up the computer and my machines. Then it was my turn to go through every little thing I owned and clean, dust, thrown away and organize! Needless to say we were all exhausted so hubby and I decided to take off to Vegas for 6 days.

I really have missed blogging and joining in on all the challenges. So my first challenge was to see that blogger changed everything on me and it is like learning everything all over again! My second challenge was to make a mess in my new pretty room, but it had to be done since I have a whole bunch of things coming up next month that I need cards for.
The first project I decided to make was a Anniversary card for Hubby. We will have been married for 42 years on October 30th. (if I don't divorce him before then)
For my card I used all scraps from my stash. The clouds were cut from Pooh and Friends and the Hot Air Balloon was cut from Everyday Pop-up Cards. The sentiment is from My Pink Stampers Love-alicious and the twine was given to me from one of my blogging friends.
I will be entering this card in the following challenges.
D.L. Arts Thankful Thursday Challenge
