I'm Baaaack!

After being away for 2+ months (it felt like so much longer), I'm happy to report I'm back! At least for a while! I don't have a craft spot in my home, but I live close enough to an awesome scrapbook store that's open 7 days a week. My time is still limited with having 4 children, but I should be able to get a couple of cards done a week with the help of my husband babysitting! Anyway, without further ado... here is my first card in awhile:

I admit, I haven't figured out the perfect place to take pictures of my cards yet, but I figured this wasn't too bad of a photo! I used *Wink *Wink Ink's stamp, "A Little Behind", which seemed just so fitting since I'm SO behind in my card making! Here are the following challenges I'm participating in with this card:

Stampavie and More - Green
Simple Doodles - Inspire Others
Cupcake Craft Challenge - Childhood Memories (Ponies and horses always remind me of when I was 5-years-old and I took horseback riding lessons. I've pretty much always wanted to be a cowgirl!)

And Prairie Fairy Fridays color challenge:

I didn't use all of the colors in the photo, but I hope my card still qualifies for their challenge!

  5. Rachael, I like the location you found actually. The homey feel it gives and the lighting seems to be great.

    Ha ha ha, I like your reason for choosing the image!

    You know I wanted to name my daughter Rachael, such a pretty name. My husband was adamant abount not using the name because his brother had already used the name for his daughter. Just no fair!
