SO good to be HOME!

Well, you know how it is, vacation was FABULOUS! But it's always soooo nice to come home, sleep in your own bed, and be home with the doglets:) I missed them so much!
I missed stamping too! I got home yesterday but didn't have any energy left from my 10 hour flight to stamp, so I got some done today:)
I had so many ideas running through my head that it was just overwhelming so I turned to some of my favorite challenges to get me out of the funk! I chose to work with this weeks MOJO MONDAY sketch and this weeks Color Combo on SCS (Old Olive, Basic Black, and Elegant Eggplant). Here's my card,
I stamped the butterflies from Enjoy in Old Olive and stamped them off once so they'd be a less intense shade of Olive. I stamped the outline butterfly in Elegant Eggplant. The sentiment is also from Enjoy...this is one fun stamp set! The circlee element is not on the sketch, but I thought I needed an extra place for the sentiment and this worked, lol!
One other project I worked on today was for the Viva la Verve challenge this week, to make a smaller than normal card:) Well I was going to make a Scrapling but decided it would make a cute bookmark and kinda went from there!

The paper is by K&Co *this is just the prettiest paper I've ever seen!* The stamps are both from "Express Yourself". I cut out two small magnet pieces and stuck them on the insides of teh scrapling so it'll hold the bookmark together when it's in the book:)
Go HERE to see the VLV challenge details and play along!
I'm not going to be posting any pictures of my vacation here, but if you're intested, they're on my facebook page:)
It's good to be back, I have so much to share and so much I want to stamp!

Welcome home, been missing you. I especially like your bookmark today. I collect them now when we travel, but I would like to make some for gifts. Blessings
