a back-in-the-saddle adventure

Yeah, not a really good analogy, but it's all I've got this evening.  Well, that and this card:
stamp sets - Hardwood, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Hearts a Flutter (on envelope); ink - Cherry Cobbler, Smoky Slate; card stock - Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White; punches - Small Heart, Modern Label, Word Window; bakers twine - Cherry Cobbler

I used this (current!) sketch from Freshly Made Sketches to make a Valentine card for The Pink Elephant Challenge (and Tom!).  {edited to add} - I intended to link this to the current Punch Parade challenge at SUO Challenges, as well, having used three different punches.  I was pretty pleased with myself for using the Word Window as an actual "window" in the Modern Label, and not just a layer on top -I don't know how I could have forgotten that.

Hmmm - I could have mounted the sentiment a little higher, but otherwise really really close.

I found my cable, uploaded my photos, and noticed I only clicked the shutter button 3 times in January.  Since two were photos for the insurance company's housing coordinator so she could arrange for additional rental pieces, that's pretty sad.  I did find my cable, now I just have to be inspired to get the camera out of its bag a little more often.  It will certainly help that I've started (one is a start!) making cards again.
