Hello! It's been a bit since we had a challenge, so I've been catching up on other things. I've been trying to be better organised in my craft area, not going so well yet. I keep losing things due to my piles of stuff. Any tips to get better organised?

Greetings! I'm sharing my card for our double challenge. I pondering a few different ideas for this sketch/color combo, but ended up using a flower stamp in the end. I used my new favorite floral stamp from the greetery, anyone shopped there yet? So I'll be off on vacation when this posts, really looking forward to the time away. Life has been really busy lately and so family time is much needed at this point. Where are we headed to you ask .... Scranton PA, why? my oldest is a HUGE fan of the office and hubs is planning to take his senior pictures there. We are planning to hit a few other places after, Salem, Boston, Newport, Mystic.... places with things to do besides checking out the lighthouses. Our kids complain if all we do is go to lighthouses. I hope everyone has a great week.

Hello! I'm back with a new card to share for this week's sketch challenge. I used a couple scrap pieces from an alcohol ink project. I have not been feeling very inspired lately. Anyone else get into a slump ? Mine has been bad for awhile. I tried cleaning my apace up ( that usually helps) , no luck. Hopefully it resolves soon , as I'm signed up for a couple craft shows in the fall and should get working on those now. Thanks for stopping by today.

Hello! I'm back with a card for this week's color challenge. I liked pushing myself to try new colors. So what is new and exciting with all of you? Not much on my end, it's very hot here so I've been staying indoors and following updates on "Chance the snapper" . So if you aren't from the Chicago area, Chance the snapper is the name people gave to the alligator (yes a real one) that has taken up residence in a local park pond. The news has been covering it for about a week now. Yes, completely ridiculous , but in 100 degree heat what else is there to do? Thanks for stopping by today, now off to check for an update... LOL!

Hello! I'm sharing my card for this week's sketch challenge.  I recently picked up this octagon die set, this is the largest size. I wish it was a bit larger, but I like it. I covered the die with a new washi tape from Pink fresh , and watercolored some gold paint over my sentiment die to finish it off. I've been really busy working in my yard the last few days, as it was finally cooler and dry. I am almost finished with the things I need to finish up on , my goal is to complete all outdoor projects this summer so next spring when I have to host a graduation party for my son, I won't be spending all my time doing all those projects. I had planned to get more done by now, but the whole month of May it rained... no joke! It rained 22 days in May here. Thanks for stopping by.

Hello! It's finally warmed up here, maybe a bit too warm for my liking. We've had unseasonably cool , rainy weather here. My garden is doing really well with all the rain, so that has been a plus. I'm haring my card for this week's color challenge. I wanted to have some color around the birds, so I water colored some of the petal pink around the image. I like the soft glow it gives it. I'm looking forward to seeing what you all come up with, I'm hoping to see some fun florals. Be back soon.
