Welcome to Hayley's Paper Garden

We just arrived home last night from our month long holiday in Nova Scotia and I am feeling refreshed and very much looking forward to a New Year of Crafting! I have decided to start a new blog so you will have to bare with me as I get things up and running. It will be ever changing over the next few months but wanted to get started with my 1st post of 2013!

This card was made thinking about everyone is Nova Scotia. It is good to be back in our own space and slowly getting into our new family routine but we will sure miss everyone back home! 

The colour combo comes from my Colour Challenge over at Sunday Stamps and the sketch I used for this card comes from Try Stampin' on a Tuesday. 

My Challenge:
