Back in the Saddle… A Quick Card

It’s always an adjustment returning home after a week-long convention!  With many chores to get done, including unpacking, laundry and general housekeeping, imagine my surprise when my prized Dyson DC07 Animal Vacuum died!!  Luckily, it is repair-able, and I made the trip to the nearest authorized repair center today.  Cross your fingers that it won’t be too expensive, and quickly repaired too!  I’ve had the vacuum for about 8 years… it has lasted longer than any vacuum I’ve ever owned… so you’ll have to pardon the state of my carpets during camps and clubs through the next few days!

So… here is a quick card I made today using Garden Greetings, and Teeny Tiny Wishes.
