I can't wait... get life back to normal!  I've almost finished tackling the mountain of laundry, cleaning the house and getting ready for our next vacation; between chasing, feeding, cleaning and entertaining the girls.  It's hotter than Hades in central Ohio - 95 and 100% humidity...ick.  Is this the time of the year parents start wishing for school to start....'cause I'm ready.  **sigh**
My only escape is my crafting room, that has long been neglected.  Then only time I can get in there is after the kids get to bed, and then I'm too hot and tired to get creative.  Oh well!  Here is something I created during one of my non-creative moments...

It's Valentine's day in the publication world, hence the theme of this card.  It is my attempt at a masculine card...
