Back To Blogging With A Peachy Keen Challenge!!

Good morning!  It feels so good to be back, posting and blogging, after being MIA for  two weeks.   We received a call a couple of weeks ago that our house (which had been on the market for almost a year) had sold, and we have been busy, busy, busy packing, storing, and moving our things.  I had to take a little break from the blogging world to get everything accomplished, and thank Heaven, it's all finally finished.  I'm very ready to get back into my routine.  I've missed you all soooo much, and I've missed stopping in to check out what all my crafty friends have been up to!!!!!

So without any further delay, I bring you the challenge from Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge Blog for this week.    For challenge #27,  we're doing a color/inspiration challenge, and the sky is the limit on this one.  I strayed from the color palette just a wee bit, because this adorable little bird from the new stamp set, Happy Bird and Phrases (PK-267) was adamant about being blue.  The rest of my card is inspired by the color palette Angelica provided for us, as is the little butterfly.  It felt so good to make a card, and I turned to the Mojo Monday Sketch for the layout for this one.  If you'd like to play along with the challenge, you have until Monday, May 2nd to link up your card or creation, and this time the entries will be juged by the DT, Angelica and Kathy.  Entries will be judged on Original Creativity, Quality of Work, and Interpretation of Challenge.  The prize is a $25.00 gift certificate to the Peachy Keen Stamps Store!  Woohoo... FREE STAMPS!!!  Be sure to check out all the amazing and wonderful creations that Emma, Nikki, Viv, Sonia, Janice, and Jacqui have put together for you.  You're gonna LOVE them!!!!! 

The Mother's Day stamps are back in stock, so be sure to check out the Peachy Keen Stamps website for all the latest and greatest promotions.  Here's a look at what's being offered, and what a deal it is!!!! 

Thank you so very much for stopping by today.  It's sooooo good to be back!!  As a little "thank you" to my friends and faithful followers, I'm putting together a bit of blog candy to give away.  Let's just say that I've found LOTS of little goodies during the move, and I've decided to share as a way to say thanks for hanging in there with me!  Wishing you many happy blessings today and always, and HAPPY STAMPING!

Love ya,
