Here is the card I made for this week's challenge at Limelight. They provided a great sketch as well as a challenge to focus on Sentiments. I love this fun sentiment from CTMH's April Word Puzzle (now retired). I am also entering this in Stamp Something's Challenge which is "A touch of Spring". I am in a very "springy" sort of mood which will become apparent over the next few days as I share the cards I have been working on this weekend. :) This is a very strange color combo for me, but I'm liking how cheerful these colors are.....what do you think?
I rec'd CTMH's new set Springtime in an order that just arrived on Friday and had to play with it asap. I think my favorite stamps in it are the galoshes - there are three different patterns you can stamp and then you add the outline afterwards - so fun! I cut these out and pop-dotted the second one to make it stand out a bit. I just love rubber boots! Since I have two boys who love puddles in springtime, or whenever it rains, I decided a few years ago that if I can't beat 'em, I may as well join them, and bought myself a cool pair of plaid galoshes. I get comments on them everywhere I go. :)
My boys and I had a fun time at the Winter Carnival! My youngest won 1st place in the Jello eating contest and the big guy won 2nd with his partner in the "Make a snowman with toilet paper" contest. We also won a fun artsy prize in the penny auction. All in all, a afternoon full of good old-fashioned fun!
Hope your weekend was fabulous!
