Wow! What a week!!!

Hello everyone!! This week has been c-r-a-z-y!!!! It's amazIing how chaotic things can be when the kids come home for a visit, need a place to stay! But we all survived and DD #2 and her boyfriend were able to stay in their new house tonight. They still have a lot of work to do and I have my scraproom to myself again. Yay!!! It was hard to get in there with suitcases, air mattress, and stuff all over. :) But I was able to get in there this morning and work on a couple of things. I had to laugh when she said "you get awful cranky when you don't get to play in your room!!".  What can I say? We just get set in our ways! lol So here's the card I made for two different challenges. The first challenge is at Die Cuttin Divas Challenge #24 for a shaped card, and the second is at My Craft Spot Monday Challenge #17 Christmas in July. Here's the recipe for my card:

Card created with the Elegant Edges cartridge
Recollection cardstock
Me & My Big Ideas pattern paper
Twine from the Twinery
Scrappy Moms Sentiment stamp

Well, I hope you like my card, and as always, thanks for stopping by!!
