I have returned!! My handsome husband is now home safe and sound! What a blessing and relief it is to have him home. Raising our three little ones by myself for 11 months is not an easy task. Thank goodness he is here to take on the challenge with me. The kids and I are soooo happy!! :) :)
I love to participate in the H2H Challenges, but I haven't spent too much time in my craft room making anything. I think I spent too much time looking at other peoples' artwork and on Pinterest. I can't get off Pinterest, it is soooo addicting.
I went to the beginning of the month of March on the H2H blog and worked on the first challenge of the month. The Spring Color Challenge. Use the colors Sunkiss Yellow, Sky, and Sweet Leaf. I added a couple other colors, but stayed with the main colors for this challenge. I hope you enjoy this card. Thanks for stopping by!

I make a gift set for my Hostess Club meetings. I really Love this set!! I used up some old paper. Yay for Me!! Do you remember Emporium? These papers are lovely and I still have a ton of it left. I am a big fan of tea. I love to have a cup in the afternoon and spend some time surfing all of those crafty blogs out there. I decided for this gift set to incorporate my love of tea. The folded booklet in this photo has a couple of tea bags tucked inside. A little Tea for Two, you might say. I didn't take a photo of the inside, but you can visit the Papertrey blog for instruction on this project. I bought some Glassine bags many moons ago and have yet to open the package up. I thought this would be a perfect way to package up some shortbread cookies to go along with the tea. The recipe is soooo good and who can resist a good cookie dipped in chocolate?! Thanks for stopping by!
