Vacation and Some Challenges

Happy Sunday everyone!!

I had a very busy day yesterday. I deep cleaned my fridge (never got to the freezer!!), took everything off of my counters and scrubbed them down, and cleaned my stove top which was a MESS!! In between, I made Whoopee Pies because I have been craving them ALL WEEK!!

I also had some time in my craft room. I have actually had quite a bit of time to stamp and color this week but did not really make many cards. It was just fun to "play" and if it came out, it came out.

Today I am posting a card that I created for CAS(E) this Sketch #267 and Color Throwdown #488.

Here is the card I created:

I stamped and colored the Wild Rose Studios "Bella With Friend" stamp with Copic Markers. I layered it over a piece of My Favorite Things "Berrylicious" card stock.

I then adhered a strip of PaperTrey Ink “Lemon Tart” over the top and stamped a sentiment from the Altenew "Beautiful Quotes" stamp set in black.

I finished off the card by using a Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Marker over the butterflies and flower, which was hard to photograph.

To finish off my day yesterday, I went on a walk with a friend on a CT Rails to Trails. This is where in certain towns that they dug up where the old rail road tracks used to run and made walking/bike trails. They are so beautiful and incorporate miles and miles of places to hike.

Well that is all from me today. I hope you have a great day!!
