You Mean the World to Me SSC68 and NAC #74

January 31, 2014

Things are slowly getting back to normal in Georgia.  That snow/ice storm threw us for a loop.  Most everyone is back to work and all the kids will go back to school on Monday.  I bet all the Mommy's are thankful for teachers :))

Since I am still trying to get back in the groove from my knee replacement, I am going to combine my card with two challenges today.  As I said yesterday, I really don't like to do that, but the amount of time that I can stand is very limited.  It is frustrating when one card takes 3 hours to make because I have to go rest.  This too shall pass!!!!

The Sunday Stamps Sketch Challenge and the Nacho Average Color Challenge go together perfectly this week.  This is my first time to play along with Sunday Stamps.  My Dear Friend, Angel told me about the challenge.  Thanks, Angel!  The colors made me think of a day at the beach, but I wanted to make a Valentine, since I still need a few more cards.  I really think you could send this card for any occasion.    I hope you enjoy it!
