It's Good To Be Back!

Wow I have really missed making cards and blogging and it feels so good to be back!  In my last post I showed pictures of my messy card room and I was frustrated because I couldn't get near my crafting table.  Since that post, my 12 year old daugter took pity on me and also was probably tired of hearing me complain so she cleaned the room for me.  What an angel!  She gave me back something that I was missing so dearly.  Since I've been back to crafting I am so happy and once again the ideas are overflowing and I can't get them out fast enough.  I've made approximately 20 cards and a handful of tags since I started again and now I just need to photograph them so I can get them on my blog and start entering some challenges again.
I also miss being on the design teams that I used to work for and someday when life calms down a bit I hope to try that again!
One of the first cards that I made when I got back to crafting is a sweet card that uses the stamp set and matching dies by
Melissa Phillips is one of my favorite designers and it's no surprise that she designed this adorable stamp set.
Anything with hearts usually catches my eye and this set is loaded with them.
Here is the card that I made:

I am very happy with the way this card turned out especially with the color combinations. 
I will not be entering this card into any challenges this week, I just wanted to get a post up and display one of the cards I have been working on.  I will be scouting out the challenges in the next week and get back into them soon!
I hope this post finds everyone happy and crafting!
Have a great day!
I already am!
