I'm back!!

It's been well over a year since I've posted to my blog 
(or done any crafting at all!) 
big changes have happened....
new job for hubby, new state, new home, new adventures.
But we are all settled in and I have been itching to get back into
stamping and crafting.

Today as I was blog hopping I came across Pretty Pink Posh 
 and saw that they are having a blog hop...
and I wanted to join along :)
 This hop is all about using your dies....

I have had this Papertrey Ink "Back To School"
set and matching "Back to School" dies since it was
 released last June... I hadn't even taken the plastic off...
the blog hop was the push I needed!

Here's a look at my card
 
I am so excited to be stamping again!
Thanks for stopping by!

Isnt it great you used your new dies...that happens to me when I leave my new purchases in their packaging and then suddenly get inspired. Very nice back to school card.
