Mojo Monday 206

I have been a little slower on getting some of the sketches I love to do done, but with my sweet husband home for 2 week leave, I wanted to spend all of my time with him and the kids.  Sadly, the two weeks came to an end.  I miss him soooo much!!  I wish that his deployment wasn't so long.  Having him home and then seeing him go was so hard!  It is such a tease for the military to let them come home for such a short time.  They should shorten the deployment time so you just look forward to having them home for good instead of teasing with such a short time at home.  We did enjoy ourselves though.  We built a new home this past November and I moved in this May.  My husband left for his deployment in April, so he never did get to stay in his new house until he arrived on leave.  We spent a lot of time getting the house in order for the winter.  Unpacking boxes and cleaning out our MESSY garage.  I know...doesn't sound like a lot of fun when you come home on leave, but he and I enjoyed working together.  We hiked, fished, swam, and spent many fun times with friends and family.  When you have to be away from each other, you really know what is important....FAMILY!

Anyway....enough of my ramblings.  It is just nice to write this all down for myself.  I finally finished my Mojo Monday sketch for this week.  I started this card a couple of days ago, but just couldn't finish it until today.  I also played along with the Heart 2 Heart Challenge.  The challenge this time was a color challenge.  The colors are Sorbet, Pear and Cocoa.  I hope you all like it!

Your card is so pretty! I love how it all came together. Please thank your husband for his service to our country. You certainly have my appreciation and support for being a military wife. I'm glad you were able to enjoy your time together.
