What have I been up to?

Hello everyone that might be reading this. I have fallen behind once again with my blog and my creative time. I am trying to spend every waking moment getting ready for my son Ryan's high school graduation May 24th. I am not ready for this day physically or emotionally. One of my babies is graduating and going off to college. He will be missed greatly by me even though he might not think so. I will have to savor every day until he leaves.
Well anyway, I thought I would post some of the pictures that I took of my cards and clear them off my camera in preparation for the graduation. I think I will split them up so I will have a few days of posts. Is that cheating? This is a card that I made for one of my swaps. I think it was for February. My mojo has been very low. I can't seem to get the layouts to paper. It appears that I have to work on my picture taking skills and picture cropping too. Not sure I like this card. It is very plain. I never was one for a lot of embellishments but....I guess it is still just missing something. Any ideas?
My stamps are from Magnolia and from Alota stamps. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the pillows (I used the extra paper for the "heart" picture.) I don't think this needs much explanation. If you want to know, just please ask.
Thanks for stopping by.

Oh it's soooo hard when our children grow up. They just don't understand, and won't until they have their own. *sigh*
Cute card, Denise! You created quite a precious little scene there. I really like the paper pieced sofa!
