Long Time No See

 Hello crafty friends!  Wow, it has been a long long time since I've posted on here.  That's not to say that I haven't been crafting during my personal blog silence, quite the opposite.  I simply ran out of time to post any of my creations here.  So much of my crafting was for Design Teams and trying to meet so many requirements, on top of going back to work full time, coaching a competition cheer team, keeping up with household demands, and running my kids to all of their extracurricular activities... well I guess you get the point... I was just too busy to add anything else in.  And that included crafting for fun... that almost sounds like an oxymoron in a way, but here I am!  

Recently I've found myself Design Team less (the first time in 8 years!), teaching my kids and nephews from home, and quarantined to our house.  It has definitely taken me a moment to get use to this new, slower life, but I think I've found a schedule that is working.  I've already gone through many of my craft supplies and purged, so I finally took a deep breath and created something just for fun.  I also have to give credit to a few challenges that helped me jump back into the swing of things, and had me excited to just play.

The first challenge I joined was the Altenew March Inspiration Challenge.   

I loved the colors on here, and while my colors came out a bit brighter than the ones in the above photo I did use the leafy image as inspiration to play with the Retro Plantines Stamp Set.

The sentiment I've used is from the Sohcahtoa Stamp Set, and for colors I used my Altenew Watercolor Set.

I am also linking this card up with the Simon Says Stamp Wed. Challenge: Anything Goes

Thank you for making it this far in my post, and for taking a moment to visit me after such a long absence.
Crafty Hugs,
