The Crafty Gals April Challenge


Hi :)

Can you believe it's already April? We're in the 4th month of 2012 and it seems like we celebrated New Year's yesterday. My Mom always said this would happen.....She said "The older you get the quicker time goes". I believe you now Mama! :)

Well the 5th of each month brings excitement to me because the blog group I started at SCS posts their monthly challenge creations on this day! Yay! You can find all the lovely ladies (The Crafty Gals) blogs listed in my right sidebar.
This month our lovely, Diane challenged us to make a card using water as inspiration. We also had to use brads, ribbon and patterned paper.

Here's what I came up with....
My image is SU! I colored it with watercolor pencils and a blender pen.
The dsp is from the SU! Sweet Pea stack. I added three black brads above the image.
Then for that pop of color I used a scalloped border of Tempting Turquoise along with a piece of TT ribbon.

Thank you Diane for a great challenge this month!

Other challenges:

Little Red Wagon ~ wants you to include an umbrella in your creation.

This card also goes with the Twisted Tuesday challenge this week....to include clouds on your creations (but the clouds can't be stamped). You have until Sunday night to enter!

Come on over...you know you wanna....
Well, I so appreciate you stopping by!

Until next time...
Blessings...
