So Sorry! So Tired!

I apologize for not posting earlier, as in yesterday morning.  I am SO TIRED.  I am so tired, I couldn't even concentrate on posting.  I have had the privilege of taking care of two of my grandchildren all week (3 and 5) along with another 5 year old granddaughter two of those days. Besides being their personal slave (smile), I helped my hubby get the yard and grounds ready for the 4th of July.  We had 45 people here. Fireworks lasted til 11:30 p.m.  So all that combined, I am feeling weary.  Should I mention my sciatic nerve?  Do I hear any violins yet?   Oh, well. I tried.
Anyway, on a brighter note, I am a grandma again!  This one broke the tie so now 6 grandsons and 5 granddaughters. One more day with the 3 and 5 year olds then a 5 hour trip to see the new one and to bring back a 6 year old for a week.  I think I will need a vacation after that!
So enough of my joys and woes - on to a card.

I have been using the Mojo Monday sketch for a few cards.  Here is one of them:
The green show up as more on the forest green hue but IRL, they are sage and camo colors.   The card will be going to one of our Heroes via Operation Write Home.

GKD Sage and Dark Sage card stock, Digital sentiment by Doodle Pantry, Digital star paper by GKD, digital camouflage paper - internet freebie,  ribbon by Marcella, star embossing folder - Cuttlebug.
