Good morning and welcome to my blog and here it is another wonderful Wednesday.  Our school term has started again and my home feels very empty as both my boys have gone back to boarding school.  I love having them around during the holidays now it's time to put thing away in their correct places.

Kathie, your card is adorable. I love this image and you colored it so beautifully. Wonderful die cut around the image and those leaves with the paper are perfect! I didn't realize that your boys are in boarding school - there are days that I tease that I wish my son was in military school for the discipline. My son has prom in a week and a half so I'm excited to see him get in a tuxedo for that. Enjoy the rest of your week.

Kathie, I know what you mean about an empty house when the boys go back to school. Sometimes it can get pretty lonely. Yes, I was a little slow getting my card posted this week. I had it ready, It was just set to the wrong time. I have been super busy. But, things are falling into place. I am starting to feel alot more comfortable in my new job. Things are going well. I really love your image and card this week. I know I say that every week. But it is really fun to see what you create. I love how you have the branch trailing down and across the other paper. it really ties them together. YOur image is really sweet. They love of a brother and sister enjoying their time together. I hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day too.
Hugs, Nancy
