January 2013 Papertrey Ink Blog Hop


It seems like it has been forever since I posted a card or even left comments on any of the blogs I follow. Last weekend we had an extra day off and I was a bit under the weather and then back to work and I have been subbing all week.  By the time I get home I am beat, too tired to spend much time on the computer other than answer a few emails. Today is Friday and my last sub day this week and then the weekend!!! Two days of time to play with paper and ink, I can't wait. Ok, it's the 25th of the month again and that means another Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.  I set aside a few minutes to get my card together and this month's theme is to have a "black" background, not a background color I use that often, but I am very happy with how my cards looks. Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a peek!
