Loving That Blue


I hope everyone had a nice weekend! We had alot of football going on around our house today. I guess the Super Bowl is next up on the menu! While everyone was watching football, I did manage to get some time in my craft room. That was very nice.

I saw the sketch over at The Paper Players and just had to play along! Go check out their challenge blog - lots of inspiration by the DT. I used the Watercolor Trio stamp set from SU and colored the image using SU markers. The lace is from that great "find" at a thrift store. You just never know what will turn up there.

This is also for the challenge at Creative Inspirations Paints. Their challenge theme to to be inspired by the shades of your favorite color - and, as you can see, my favorite color is blue. Also be sure and check out their challenge.

Oh - and just one more reminder on challenges......Stamps R Us has their challenge beginning today and the theme is to use an animal on your creation. The winner will receive five digital images of their choice from Sew Many Cards. I'll be showing my card for this next week as their challenge runs for two weeks.

So....this card is for the challenges at The Paper Players and Creative Inspirations Paint.

Thanks for stopping by..............

Lovin' all the blue, Lynn! The embossing, the lace and the pearls look fabulous, too. You are going to laugh at me but I actually asked my husband yesterday if the Super Bowl had happened yet! Yikes! But now I know! Haha! Who are you rooting for? :)
