Thank You

Aren't challenges fun? For me, they keep me actively crafting and thinking. I use my brain in fun ways, I play games. I love word games, scrabble being my favorite. But my passion is crafting. I like putting things together but most often need a pattern of some sort. Knitting, crocheting and counted x-stitch, I follow patterns. The same goes for my card making. I move faster if I have a sketch to follow. I am not an artist, can't draw worth a darn, and am never satisfied with my own creations, so I follow patterns.


The sketch here is Mojo Monday #213, the colors are from Hand Stamped Sentiments #91 and the sentiment is for Tuesday Throwdown #73. Wow, I got three challenges into one card. Keeps the number of cards I make to a minimum. I make cards, I don't send cards. Its now time to get my cards boxed and sent off to OWH.
Paper is SU: Cherry Cobbler, Real red, Wild Wasabi and Very Vanila. (the pp is from probably DCWV, but I could be wrong)
The circles and oval are Spellbinders Nestabilities, the stamp is Inkadinkado, and lastly, that little bit of embellishment is from Recollections.
Thanks for stopping by Take care
