I am back....

First I must apologise to everyone for not blogging for such a long time. I had a lot going on... We move from Okinawa Japan to Bluffton South Carolina. We bought a new house here and it took me a while to get settled in, after living in military housing for over 8 years I needed some color other that beige. Me and my hubby painted and done a lot of little stuff around the house to make it the way we want it and we are still not done, I guess it will take sometime before we get it together. Hopefully we do before our next move..LOL..
Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. I sure did. We went to New York and spent some quality time with family. After 7 long years this is the first time we get to spend Holidays with family around. It felt so good.
I made this card for Our Daily Bread Designs Challenge over on splitcoast. Did you all notice that ODBD is now part of splitcoast member companies... Yeah for Kelley!! I am so happy for her...
Anyway on to the challenge... Over on Splitcoast Stampers Kelley is kicking off the new year with a challenge and it is to used brown, punches or dies, Check it out HERE and be sure play along. I thought it was such a perfect opportunity for me to get back into the groove of stamping, I need to get my MOJO back so bad... Man it is hard to get back into the groove of things.
On to my card. I used SU chocolate chip, Old Olive, Pink Pirouette and White card stock along with Old olive card stock. I used MS punch and spellbinder rectangle. I also added some pearls, Brad and ribbon for the finishing touch. My stamp is from ODBD.

Here is a look at the inside of the card.

Hopefully I will be back in the swing of things soon. I am working on a few cards, hoping to post them soon.
Thanks for looking
