Happy Wednesday

Hi guys,

Happy Wednesday!  Still sitting at Starbucks...sigh...  I'm waiting for my hubby to fly back home and fix the wifi.  He will be gone all this week so I guess I will be coming here many times.  My little Gigi is sitting watching Caillou and being good.  Fingers crossed she lasts a little bit longer.

Today starts the new Crafter's Companion USA Challenge Blog's "Friendship" challenge. You just have to use a Crafter's Companion Stamp and the theme "friendship".  I made this card as my example.

I used the Humphreys collection stamp set - Girl Talk.  I used the packaging as inspiration on what colors to color the image.  Sometimes that just makes things go so much quicker!! LOL   And with a 4 year old wanting my attention 24/7, quicker can be a lifesaver!! ha

I saw a card in a magazine that had a handwritten to do list on it that I wanted to scraplift so I wrote up this list for my card. 

Today is also the start of a sketch challenge over at Sketches4all.  I really love the sketch and I immediately got to work on it when I received it.  I used a photo from our recent camping trip to Arbuckle Lake.

What do you think?  I don't think it photographed well but I personally LOVE it!!  It is so pretty in person.  I made the banner from some stickers and patterned paper.  I was dying to use these little clothes pins.  I used my tiny attacher to staple on the bakers twine and then threaded it through the clothes pins

I made a little hidden journaling card.  And I had fun using several different alpha stickers to make my title. 

This  challenge will be going on until August 31st at midnight and you have to use a summery or vacation theme.  You should go check out all the fun examples from the DT and then join in yourself.  It's a fun sketch and you could win the Echo Park paper pad that is the prize for the winner.

Gigi is getting bored so I'm about to end this and talk to you more tomorrow.  How about I end with a couple of photos from our trip to the GW Exotic Animal park.

Some hot and tired tigers.

Until next time....happy scrapping!!!
