Always Playing with Paper #18 Card

SO happy to be home sweet home after a month of gallivanting.  There’s nothing like time away to make your fonder of the place you’re planted, if you’re lucky enough to have a spot to always come back to and nest.  Had lovely sister time and visits with relatives and besides the refreshment of new scenery it always enriches and inspires me to travel. 

But now, my season is once again here at home.  And I’m delighted to jump back into my craft room, my happy little place!  I took up my first challenge with this:

Always Playing with Paper # 18

I chose to go with the sketch rather than the colors, and I took the liberty to turn it on it’s side:

APWP-18---Barb-Derksen

Supplies:

MME “In Bloom” Paper Pad, Elizabeth Craft designs embossing folder, My Favorite Things sentiment stamp.

Thanks for stopping by!  I look forward to catching up on all my blog hopping and commenting.
