Happy Tuesday Friends!!  It has been nice to be home for the last couple of days but boy has life been busy.  You go away for 5 days and it takes 5 days to catch up.  LOL!!!

Yesterday, between digging out sod to create yet another garden in our backyard, I created a card for this week's sketch challenge at the Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge.
