Crafting When We Can Challenge #40

Happy Sunday everyone :)  Today begins a new challenge at Crafting When We Can! This is Challenge #40 and it is a sketch! This was a fun sketch to work with and an awesome image from Lacy Sunshine - Pickles and Waldo. I love them!! I made two cards since I had two colored. Here is the sketch we are using for this challenge:


Here is my card for our challenge:





For this one I used Copic to color the image. I used scrap papers from Club Scrap and cardstock. I used several dies: two of them Spellbinders and the other Memory Box. I distressed some edges, added some bone buttons which I have had forever! I think I have buttons in every color and shape LOL I must have collected them when I first started crafting. I created the sentiment for the outside and inside of the card. I thought it was fitting :) I also used some ribbon across the top. 

Challenges:


Here is my 2nd card with the same image:


For this one I used a lot of the same. I used several dies... including the scalloped square by Spellbinders, the flower spray is Memory Box and the label is from My Favorite Things. I colored this image using Prismacolor pencils and Copic for the ground. I distressed several of the papers and I used the same sentiment that I designed for this card. I only used two bone buttons on this one as well.

Challenges:
Thanks so much for coming by! :)  It's good to be feeling better. And the weather this weekend is amazing. I have a garden box in the back yard. The kids and I worked on it yesterday. We added some soil and soil conditioner and got it all leveled out. I need to go to Walmart after church today and pick up a few more bags to add to the last section of the box. I planted onion in one section. I really can't plant anything else yet. I believe it is going to be getting really cold again and I don't want to kill everything before I get it going. I'm going to try for some tomato, cucumber, radish, peas, onion and zucchini. I believe that was it. I'm excited to be able to plant a garden!! I couldn't do that in the apartment!

We also got our driveway poured yesterday! FINALLY!! It has been really terrible driving on the rock and dirt. I can't drive on it for a week, but it is poured so that is great!

I'm not 100% well yet, but I am feeling really good!! It's good to be feeling better :) I missed a day and a half of work and I NEVER miss work LOL But all is good.

I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday. We will be heading off to church in a bit. Happy Sunday everyone!!!
