MIA, but now I am back!

Wow.... it has been quite awhile since I last posted.The main reason for that is because I have been really sick. I have had a cold/?flu for the past 2 weeks. It has really put me out of commission. The last thing I have felt like doing was being creative. It was enough just to go out Christmas shopping and do all the things the holidays require, plus having to work. Well enough complaining, while I am not completely well, I have started working in the studio again.

First, I did what I do every year at this time, I purged. Boxes of stamps went to the attic and lots of stuff just got tossed. Once everything was cleaned, sorted and organized, I sat at my desk to play.
Just Us Girls is one of the few challenge sites not taking a holiday break. Just what I needed to get past my holiday block. They had a cool photo challenge.

I just loved the pink and grey colors with the fun polka dots thrown in. Since the Christmas stamps are put away  and the Valentine stamps are out, I had to make "love" card.

The image is an old StampinUp set stored without the name of the set. Gotta love the elephant especially since I just noticed there are elephants on the pillow in the photo.

I hope you will play along with my buddies from JUGS.
