It's hard to believe that I've been with my mom for nearly a month, and what a month it's been! My husband is coming tomorrow; I'll be packing my gear to head back with him on Sunday. It ain't going to be pretty, because someone is going to be shedding serious tears!! On the plus side, we're aiming to return next Friday, and trust me, I'll be counting down the 'sleeps' beginning Sunday night. Back to work Monday morning...gahhhhhhhh! Okay, enough about this topic.
Mom and I accomplished quite a few items from the must-do list. Highlight: new furnaces! Yayy! They were installed Wednesday/Thursday, by two servicemen who were absolute sweethearts: professional, polite and friendly. We've had many encounters with incredibly compassionate people over the past couple of weeks; talk about blessings!
Moving on....Today's card, made pretty much last minute (apparently some things remain the same *grin*), was inspired by STAMPlorations Bi-Weekly Sketch Challenge #25
Plenty of reckoning and figuring took place behind-the-scenes before I finally settled on giving my new Trendy Leaves stamps a go. In case my interpretation of the sketch isn't clear, here's my translation: the leaves = hearts; an embossed strip of birch trees = the band across the front panel; more paint chip paper (sorry...) = the borders.

I've also discovered a new place to play, thanks to wonderful and talented Shirley, from Shirley-bee's Stamping Stuff, whose lovely card here, lead to:
