Phew!  I am finally back home in my stamp room! Thanks to Winter Storm Hercules and the Polar Vortex, we spent an unexpected extra six days back East. A big thank you to my parents for their generosity and hospitality. It sure is nice to be home, though, and stamping again. Today’s card uses this week’s sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and the birthday & twine theme combination from The Friday Mashup.

One of my favorite fall papers was Orchard Harvest, from back in 2012. Good news, though — it is currently available on the Clearance Rack for less than half price! It was the perfect background piece for a birthday card for my brother.
