It has been awhile since my last post, things have been crazy around my family. We came home from Utah and then returned 5 days later. Billy had more tests done, and I was able to spend more time with my daughter and sister. We will be returning to Utah once again in August, hopefully will get some answers about the pain in his legs and we will know what the next step will be.

We were able to make cards, nine to be exact, we made six of each for a swap, so we really did get alot completed. I will be posting some of those cards at a later date.

I really wanted to participate in a challenge at Crafty Creations to get motivated again. My goal is to make 6 of each card to continue the swap with my sister, her family and my family, finding that it is just as easy to make one card as six.
This is Sketch Challenge #25 for CCC.
This was a new experience for me, I've not used a sketch for a challenge so this definitely a challenge for me. I seem to always go for solid colors and stay away from prints, am trying to use more prints, but it didn't really happen with this card.
The flower pot stamp, was part of a set from Hero Arts, this was in my stash from years ago, longer than I'd like to remember, LOL! The sentiment stamp is from Stampology.
Reversed colors and added rhinestones, and a flower rhinestone for accents.
Will continue to try and create out my comfort zone. Do like the results, but know that improvements can be made.
Have a great crafting day.
