Feels Good to Be Back

Was super excited today when my mother-in-law took the girls out to lunch today!  Woohoooo....Mommy ran straight into her craft corner!!  It has been a little while since I've been able to get here and it felt so good to whip up some cards!  I was starting to have withdrawal symptoms, lol. 

One of the cards I made today is a Mother's Day card based upon the sketch over at The Pink Elephant Challenge Blog (and you know how much I loves me my sketches!!!)  Here is the sketch provided for the challenge this week:
