We All Take Different Paths

We lost internet after our power went out yesterday with all the nasty storms.  However, moments ago, our internet was restored.  When I called this morning, I was told it would be turned on at 8:20am tomorrow.  Yes, 8:20!  Funny how they can be so exact, huh?  The whole mountain lost internet service, so I guess they decided to send someone out on the weekend.  That NEVER happens.  We always lose service on Fridays or Saturdays and have to wait until Monday for restoration.  I am tickled pink to be back online.  My eyes are tired of squinting while checking email on my iPhone!!!!

My card today is an inspirational one.

I used the sketch at Atlantic Hearts, but not checking local time, I am too late for the challenge :(.  That's okay, I enjoyed working with the sketch.  I used the Taylored Expressions Birch Tree cut plate for the background.  The sentiment from Stampendous is stamped with Tim Holtz Distressed Ink Weathered Wood and cut out with a Tiddly Inks stitched die.  CS is from my scrap bin.  I used Memory Box bird dies as accents.

I am entering the following challenges:

Allsorts - stitching
That Craft Place - monochrome
Dream Valley - monochrome
The Paper SHelter - punches/dies

Thanks for stopping by!
