Journey

Good afternoon ladies (and Derek) ;)

I will have to make this quick, as I finally bought paint to do our "powder room." I can't believe I have left it this long. Right now the walls are khaki green and all my accessories are green apple - doesn't really go too well together LOL. I am keeping the green apple because that is one of my new favorite colors and I have painting the wall "Sweetwood." Just a nice dark warm taupe :)

Our extended weekend was nice - it was great to get away even if it was just for a couple of days.

Now look at me - I am carrying on...

Today's Challenges: 1. The Color Throwdown's new color challenge, such elegant colors:


2. Stampin' Royalty has a sketch this week. This is their first sketch challenge and it is so pretty:


3. Cute Card Thursday says "Blooming Gorgeous" (use flowers):


And here is my entry:





Card Ingredients: K&Co Viola Vita paper; Bazzill and Recollections cardstock; Inkadinkado stamps; Craftsmart Black ink; Fiskars elegant punch; Stickles Purple; Copic markers; Dashes, Dots & Checks ribbon; Prima; random gems, button, and twine.

Happy Sunday!! I am off to wrap up some cards and then off I go to paint!! Stay happy!!
