I'm back, with a challenge

 
I am baaaaccckkkk!  With a valentine, my first of the season.  And, I am ready for a challenge.  I have had some of my fun new toys from Stampin' Up! for a couple weeks now, but I have been too run down from the flu to even think of stamping.  Yesterday, I finally took down the Christmas tree, and today I got almost all the decorations packed away.  Then I headed to the craft room, where I needed to do some heavy cleaning so that I could find a surface to work on.  I had managed to get the room cleaned up before Christmas, but so many things got piled on the table, for lack of places to put them away.  I have not done a lick of stamping since my last post in December, when I finished the craft sales.  So, I packed away the Christmas stamps today, and sorted out the paper, and packed it away.  I put away the paper and stamps from the Fall & Winter catalog, and made room for the new goodies.  Yeah!!  I am ready to stamp.  Only I needed some inspiration, so I headed to the computer to do some blogging, and to find some challenges, to get me back on track again.  I love going blog hopping to see what everybody else has been doing with their new Stampin' Up toys.  So, tonight I finally hit the table stamping at about 8:00, and managed to make a couple things. 
This card was my favorite using the Hearts a Flutter stamp set and the matching Framelits.  I used a layout from Mojo Monday Challenge 276, and the color combination from The Pink Elephant Challenge to use red, pink and white, and Just Add Ink had a challenge to use my Big Shot, so those are my inspirations for my card.  By the way, Just Add Ink is having a Big Shot Blog Hop, and that kept me busy for quite a while.  All of the blogs have such terrific design teams, and I am amazed at all the fun ideas I found.  I think I got my stampin Mojo back :)  Hope you like my card, and I promise to share more tomorrow.
