Another Challenge Card

Me again, with another Challenge Card for you. This time it's a weekly Challenge give by a Demo group of which I'm a member. These challenges are great if you ever find yourself short on creativity they really help to get you started.

I used the Level 1, hostess set, Country morning it has 3 really cute images and a great sentiment in the set. It is the perfect set for practicing your water coloring technique. I got to use the Old Olive wide striped ribbon on the card, what FUN ribbon this it.

As always a big thank you for stopping by and I'll try to get pictures of my Foster Pups posted soon, they'll only be here until Saturday and I'm already worried about missing them. But they are going to great homes, so that makes me feel better!

Until next time.......see ya!

Happy New Year - Challenges

Hello everyone, I've been away a really long time! Boy there just isn't enough hours in the day. I wanted to pop in though and wish everyone the Happiest of New Years. I wish nothing but Health, Happiness and Wealth to each of you out there in cyberland.

My New Year's Weekend has been a WONDERFUL stay at home weekend and so I've found time to stamp. I got to stay around the house last weekend too (Christmas) because Oklahoma had a BLIZZARD, yes you read that right a honest to goodness blizzard! It was crazy, I was so glad I was able to stay comfy and warm in my house with my Puppies and they loved it too.

The card below is a product of two challenges Mary Jo's Monday sketch challenge TSSC102 and the Diva Coffee Breaks Color Challenge #158. I just love this turtle from Stampin' UP!'s Nature's Nest stamp set, he's very fun to watercolor.

I certainly appreciate you stopping by to take a look. I'll try to be more consistent but no false promises, because I'm in the Accounting field and I'm getting ready to enter a very busy stressful time. But posting more consistently is one of my New Year's goal, not resolutions, I have a tendency to break those.

One more quick note, I'm very excited because this weekend I'll be part of a wonderful rescue effort to give new Forever Homes to two sweet sweet Pit Bull doggies. They are traveling from San Diego, California to their forever homes and are laying over in Oklahoma City on there way. Since it's a volunteer effort all the transporting is done on the weekends so they need a place to stay on their trip. I'm the lucky girl who will get to foster them. I'll try to take some pictures and post them so you can see their sweet little faces for yourself.
Remember those homeless pets out there who don't want anything but to be apart of a loving home! Adopt DON'T BUY!! You'll save a LIFE!!

Thanks and talk to you soon.
