Well hello Blog friends! It has been a long time since I have been here, or posted anything. I do have a very good excuse however! I had my daughter..a beautiful baby girl, on December 14,2009. She was 7lbs 8oz of perfection. Her name is Abigail, and we love her more than words can say! So needless to say I have had little time for blogworld lately and I apologize. It was easier to do challenges with 1 child, while he napped or watched a movie..with a newborn, its a bit tougher as when they nap, so do I. I had a few complications after pregnancy that also left me resting a bit more. Anyhow, I am back..and I am ready to create..my urges to create are tingling!! So of course I headed to http://dailydare4u.blogspot.com/ to see what this Saturday has..and here is what I found that inspired me :

http://crazy4challenges.blogspot.com/ has a challenge to do a Valentines Day card {I think this is the challenge I will use to make my hubbys valentine}

http://onestopcraftchallenge.blogspot.com/ has a colour challenge of Apple Green, Chocolate and Clotted Cream… hmmm this one might REALLY get me out of my norm!!
http://www.scrapandstampsaturday.blogspot.com/ has the following :  This week we have an inspiration photo for you.  Now you can use as little or as much of this photo as your inspiration.  Does the colors speak to you?  The format?  How about the elements?  Use whatever draws you in!  We can’t wait to see your layout based on it!
