AHSC for my return

Returning to my craft table after a long time away recovering from a total knee replacement.  It had some complications, and LOTS of physical therapy.  But I'm here to report that the therapy team was awesome and now I am better than I've been in decades.  The recovery coincided with a gorgeous summer and a yard that had been seriously neglected. So back to hiking woodsy trails, weeding and mowing, playing with the grandchildren...and now back to my craft room.

Seems just right that my first card back is for Atlantic Hearts!  I had so much fun playing along with their great sketches and later being on their design team for a year.  Their blog has grown and I am thrilled to see all the wonderful cards posted there each week.

Recently one of my grandsons asked the 2 1/2 year old granddaughter, "Are you cute?" Her reply had us all laughing: "NO! I am adorable." 

So my entry this week is for AHSC #227

Products used:
Spots & Dots embossing folder (Provo Craft)
Georgie Papers and card stock (CTMH, retired)
Juniper twine (CTMH)
White Opal Liquid Pearls  (Ranger)


  1. Oh I LOVE this! So sweet... always loved those papers... and love the embossing! Thanks so much for stopping by my place too and happy you're feeling up to crafting!

  2. Welcome back, Dena, glad that you got back to your craftroom. The embossed background fits that paperpack so well and your card is CAS and pretty. Thanks for joining us at AHSC.

  3. So glad you are able to inspire us again at the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge blog! I love the back story to your card creation and the circle theme that carries from embossed solid cardstock to pretty patterned paper.
