Well it's been awhile but I am back! This is the 1st card I've made in 3 weeks! I thought I had completely lost my mojo, lol. This last month has been kinda crazy-work has been a nightmare!

I need to give kudos to Beth from Freckled & Fun for my new blog header and signature. She did a fantastic job. I've added a link to her blog on my sidebar. Don't you just love the little grasshopper. Why grasshoppers you might ask? Well my last name is Hopper and it doesn't matter how I say it or spell it I am always addressed as Hooper! I've found my self saying Hopper...like in grasshopper! LOL.
Anyway, I digress. Today's card is for the Friday Sketchers challenge. This weeks sketch was designed by Bea and I love it! I will definitely be using this one again.









My card is in my signature colors...yes after looking back at what I've done over the last several months it seems I am addicted to black & white. I think this card turned out "absolutely fabulous!"







I just love this stamp. I picked up last week in Michaels. It's from the Montage collection by Stampendous. I have no idea who the dp is by- cut the edge off and can't remember who it's by but I love. It was 2 sided dp and I have used both sides in this card. The brads and rub ons are making memories and my little "flower" yoyos were made by my mother. I love yoyos and she made me several in different sizes...in my favorite color again...black & white.

Well that is it for now.
