Thank You

Yes, thank you for putting up with me and my three day absence. I've been putting in extra hours at work in the evenings plus trying to keep up with all the "mother" stuff during the days and have no time to play. I did get some crafty time in a bit ago to create my No Pattern Paper card for the CAS challenge at The Outlawz. Believe it or not, I'm the one who came up with this challenge!!!!! It was a tough one because I LOVE my pattern paper. The vellum flowers were die cut using the Stitched Flowers Die-namics from My Favorite Things. The sentiment is from the More Sketchy Banner Greetings found at Simon Says Stamps. I sure hope you can join us for our CAS challenge of no pattern paper at The Outlawz.

Tea Time

So what do you think of the latest sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge? Fabulous, right?!! I certainly had fun with it!!

Swimming By...

Welcome back to Day 3 of our Under the Sea birthday celebration at Catch the Bug. Today it's a color challenge...and what great colors they are too!! Very much it makes me think of the ocean. 

Mondays at Catch the Bug usually mean Anything But a Card. I found a video on You Tube for this Kisses Gift Card Holder and decided to give it a try. It was easy to do, and that's coming from someone who doesn't like to make anything but a card!! My image is from the sweet Bugaboo Mini Set AKV Under the Sea. Now I hope you can join us for our color challenge today (you're allowed to make a card!!) at Catch the Bug.
