Make it Monday #51 and For Cath Blog Hop



I just returned from a trip out to CA, so I've been MIA and need to catch up on a few posts/challenges.

Plus, I really wanted to join in this morning when I saw the blog hop that
sweet Virginia and Lorena organized for everyone's favorite Moxie Fabber ~ Cath , who's not at CHA with the rest of the Paper Crafts Magazine gang because of shoulder pain :( Feel better, dear friend!

Check out the Blog Hop on "Yes, Virginia" here:

My card also is posted to this week's Make It Monday technique "Dimensions Sentiment Banner" which was a "first" for me and I pretty much followed Nicole's lead here:http://nicholeheady.typepad.com/capture_the_moment/2012/01/make-it-monday-51.html
