We Are Blessed

Had a great weekend as we spent a couple days up in Michigan visiting our youngest DS and his GF who are away at college.   We miss them and since it was the end of the term, it was a good time for a visit. 

Today I spent getting ready for a very busy week.  Glad for some stamping time.  This card was inspired by this week's Paper Players Sketch Challenge #193.  It's also my #4 card for our Round 2, 100x100 Challenge at SCS.   I hope to get 100 "unique" cards done for the challenge this round, but I guess no matter how many I finish, it's all good.   

Supplies:  CTMH Paper Skylark,  CS Cocoa, Lagoon,  CTMH Stamps D1455 Blessed,  CTMH Ink Cocoa, Lagoon, Crème Brulee,  CTMH Opaques Pearl,  CTMH Teal Resin Flowers

how VERY fun it is to be with my CTMH girlfriends at the CTMH ReDiscover Event in Detroit, Michigan!   I can't believe it worked out so I could attend but it did and I had a great time.  Lots of good info and inspiration.   

Speaking of inspiration,  today is Day #3 of Round 2 of our SCS "100x100" challenge.   If you have never done a challenge like this, the goal is to create a scrap page or card, 100 in 100 days.   It's very fun and is a great push to create daily.  The card sketch is MOJO Monday #337   I'll definitely photo my fun projects from tonight for my blog tomorrow!

Hello Tuesday

wait a minute ... come back sunshine!  I loved the 70 degree days we had this weekend but unfortunately, the nice temps didn't stay around ... we're back into the 40's today.  Oh well, still lovin' the Spring weather and glad to see the birds out and the daffodils budding. 

My card for today is inspired from MOJO Monday Sketch #340, I'm just catching up on a few I got behind on.   It's for Day #2 of the 2nd Round of our SCS "100x100" Card Challenge.

It's BACK ...

Ok, not only do I mean the Sunshine but Round #2 of our SCS "100x100" challenge!  Yes!  the 2nd round.  I did well, the first one,  I finished 184 cards, 71 different unique cards.   For all of January and February,  I had a card per day posted on my blog :)    I hope to do it again this round.  It's great for MOJO and especially using supplies.

No matter how many cards I get done for this round, I'll be happy.   My card today is inspired from this week's MOJO Monday #342.   Fun Sketch!  I hope too use it again soon as I have another idea for this one.

Come On Spring

Right now here in Ohio the weather has been so quirky it feels like Spring will never get here ... where is it?!   We had nice days near 60 then freezing temps and more snow several times, ugh!  Well,  I'm ready for Spring and going to wish for it.  Hello April! I've pulled out my flower and bird stamps and put away the snowmen for next year,  LOL!

It's Friday (YAY!) and time for another Color My Heart Color Dare #88.  The challenge colors this week are Smoothie, Buttercup, Sunset, Lagoon and Sweet Leaf.   Some of my colors are in the background as I tried a "blowing technique" for a card challenge.  I like how it turned out,  especially for this Springtime card.  It's day #94 of our 100x100 Challenge at SCS!  Come and play!
