There is so much to catch up on and I've finally gotten time to do it. Last week I took Mom back over to Seattle for her tube check and doctor appointments and it all went so well. She had her last drain removed and she doesn't have to go back over for follow ups for six whole months. That means there will only be local appointments and since she is getting stronger every day there will finally be a return to a much more normal schedule around here.
To that end I'm trying to get back in the crafty groove of things. And to make that transition smoother I thought that it would help to get reacquainted with some of the challenges that are going on. Since I already had this Kaylee's Closet girlie stamped and ready to go I took a look at the current SOG challenge for inspiration. It's a great sketch this month that had me reaching for my scrap bag and going to town. And because this is definitely a winter/Christmas themed card I'm also entering it into this month's Winter Vibe Oozak challenge. How's that for jumping back in with both feet? LOL
Seriously though, I'm excited to be creating again and I've got plans to stamp out a bunch of images that I haven't used yet and have them ready to go to hopefully speed things along even more. That and I'll be looking into more challenges to keep the creative juices flowing as well. ;)
