Dear Friend

Hello everyone!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are enjoying a fabulous new week ahead.  We are quite busy around here.  My daughter was sick this weekend, the deal fell through on our house, and the kids had their piano recital.  This week we will busy once again showing the house (at least we hope so) and getting my daughter ready for her dance concert which takes up 4 days of the week between practices and rehearsals and the actual shows.  Hopefully this time around she'll actually stay up on the stage.  When she was three she became known as the little run away crab.  She's a couple years older now so that should help.

Anyhow, here's a couple of cards that I made for the Paper Crafts Go-to-sketch Challenge #3 using the Embellish colours.  I also have another attempt at that fall-to-layout sketch I did in my last post.  I used the same colours but no butterfly.  For all three pieces I used acrylic paint and my pattern tracing wheel as shown on the Paper Crafts Connection blog.  Pretty neat hey?  And it is so much fun.  For the green painting I even got to mix paint together (3 parts dark green with 1 part yellow).  And the black was so fun because it showed up so well on the craft that I did two cards with it!

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a peak and/or leaving me some love =)  I do hope you have a very wonderful week and if I don't respond to your lovely comments or I've missed some of your latest and greatest creations I'm very sorry and hope to catch up when things settle down around here.

Here are some close up shots and if you have any questions about the materials used feel free to ask and I will try to get back to you asap.
