Sending Hugs from home

 Hello!  Today was my youngest son's first day back to school and although I missed him and hoped he was having a great first day back, it was nice to get my errands run without worrying about him.  

I was inspired by two challenges for the card I have today, the first is the Retro Sketches Challenge #180  and the second is the Just Add Ink Challenge #278.

 For my card, I used the Papertrey Ink stamp sets Big Hugs, Bloomers and Delightful Dahlia Additions for the leaves.  I die cut the "Hugs" in royal velvet three times and glued them together for some added dimension to the word and stamped the sending and from home in the same color ink.  I started out with a white card base and stamped the largest flower in pumpkin ink with the centers in only orange and real rust.  Then I stamped the two side flowers
