Good Morning!

Hello! After some sporadic posting I am back. I had a few SU events which all went well but kept me busy. Had sick kids home yesterday and had some yard work to do since it was so nice out, but today I'm solo and ready to stamp. Well, I still have some yard work to do and think I'll vacuum out my car one more time before it is too cold... plus washing some bedding so I can take advantage of this warmer weather and use my clothesline today. But FIRST, I will be stamping!

I made this card for today's Diva Color Challenge. Sometimes I really struggle with color challenges- isn't that funny since I'm a "color person"?! I guess I have strong ideas about color so of course every challenge isn't going to appeal to me. Next to each other these colors look a little drab, but it didn't take me long to get working with them. Funny thing is my biggest challenge was getting the gray in there once I had this designed. That's funny because I LOVE Basic Gray!

This week's Clean & Simple challenge on Splitcoast is to do a CAS Sympathy card. I didn't mind doing one because I usually don't until I need one, so now I will have one ready for an unfortunate time when I might need one. I also managed to fit in a sketch challenge from Monday's Mojo challenge. I'm not normally a fan of combining many challenges (I know you are laughing at me Lisa) but this one just fell together that way, so it isn't forced. KWIM?

Anyway, thanks for stopping by! I am hoping to play a little while today so I'll definitely have something to post for tomorrow. Have a great day and enjoy the sunshine if you have some where you live!

Oh Hey, I forgot to say, go check out the Divas today! (Like my rhyme??)
