Happy Birthday


I have another card to share today.  I am hoping to get some scrapbooking done this week too but the last few days I have just been working on cards.

Anyway.  The card I made today used two challenges.  Sketch Saturday and Dynamic Duos.    Both challenges are new to me so this is the first time I have participated in either one.  You can find this weeks Sketch Saturday Challenge here.  This was week #221 and was a fun challenge to work with.  This weeks challenge at Dynamic Duos can be found here.

It really was a lot of fun playing along with both challenges.  My mojo was on hiatus or vacation today so having a couple challenges to work with helped my crafting process along a bit. Plus I just really really like playing along with challenges.  Either way...it works.

Now onto a more non-crafty note...the kids go back to school tomorrow.  I have really enjoyed my summer with them.   I have always worked outside the home...but since we moved to Virginia this past October my husband has made it possible for me to stay home with the kids. And thanks to my employer in FL, I am able to work for them part-time, remotely, from home.

It was really fun being home with them going on little outings, going to visit family and just hanging out.  But I think these last couple of weeks they have been getting restless and well now I am ready to get back the regular routine, though I will miss sleeping in.  The only think I want to complain about...is having to get up at 6:30 a.m to get Carli to school. Yes I know for most that is not early, that people are at work already and that most people consider that normal but not me.  Even when I worked full-time I didn't have to get up until 7:20 a.m.  And yes...I am one of those people that sleep in until the very last minute.   I am not a morning person.  Oh, well...I know we all have to do it.  Just thought I would share how much I just don't care for early early morning!  He he he he!

Hope everyone has a great week!

You're not alone with the early morning thing! For me, becoming a parent was a bit of a shock to my system...we seem to have early birds for children! Eeek! I'm such a night owl!!! I, too, am going to miss the leisurely mornings of summer!
Love the delicate flowers you used for your main image! So sweet and I really like the layout of your card! Thanks so much for joining us at Dynamic Duos! :)
