Yay!! I finished a challenge card BEFORE the deadline. WAY before -- that almost never happens!
I jut received a small order from 7 Kids College Fund, & included in that order was this cute little Betty Bug from Pink Cat Studios. I colored the image with Copic markers --yes, the WHOLE THING! Nary a pencil anywhere on this image! I did bling her up with some Stickles though -- the papers are Basic Grey Urban Prairie -- & the layout is the sketch from Papertake Weekly.
Can you see her sparkle??
Besides the sketch challenge, I am also entering this into:
A Spoon Full of Sugar (Flower Power)
All Sorts Challenge (Things with Wings)
Truly Scrumptious (Summer Sparkle)
Bunny Zoe's Crafts (Lace)
Of course it's that time of year when I just have to add a photo or two of my flowers!
This is just one of the many different colored Columbine plants that are growing -- and growing and growing. If you want a plant that reseeds every year, aren't a lot of work & come in an array of colors, this is the flower for you!
These are the flowers from a bush we call Bridal Veil in these parts -- not even sure what the horticulturally correct name is --- but it's pretty & it also takes care of itself!
My grandma used to own a ceramics shop -- she made me 6 of these adorable guys when we bought our first home. Nothing like napping on the deck, under a pot of flowers while listening to the birds chirp. I want to be a ceramic gnome in my next life :)
That is all for today --if you made it through this whole post thank you!!
Tomorrow I am off to the 6th grade field trip. It should have been to Chicago -- that is the annual trip our district takes -- except this year, of course. We are going to the local YMCA -- sigh ...... well I am just happy that my 12 year old actually still WANTS me to go on his field trips with him!
