Well, yesterday I only got around to making ONE I made sure I made that card count! LOL. It meets 3 challenges...

#1 - It meets sketch challenge #165 from SplitCoastStampers
#2 - It meets the color challenge from SBS4 (lilac mist, garden green, bamboo and buttercup)
#3 - It meets the "Girl's" theme challenge AFSS6 from Stampin' When I Can

The image is one of my new ones from High Hopes Rubber Stamps. I didn't have a garden green" marker so settled for Key Lime instead. Hopefully that's still close enough for the challenge. Oh, and then I discovered that the light that I use to take pictures in my hot enough to MELT my markers. ARGH. I think I ruined about $20 worth of markers. I heard a "popping" noise and when I looked over the plastic on the markers were bubbling up and melting.

The reason I only got one card stamped yesterday was because we had a family outing. We took the kids to a nearby park where they stock the "lake" with fish. I don't "do" fishing...but I can sit in a a chair and read a book and take pictures of them! LOL. They really don't do a lot of fishing either and I don't think we've ever caught anything there...but they have a good time trying.

Here's my hubby:

Here is our oldest son: (I can't seem to get a good picture of him these days!)

Here are a couple pictures of our youngest:

This one he said he looks like he's hugging his two best friends! ;-)

Well, that's all for today folks. I have lots of artwork from others to share this week - hopefully I'll get a chance to do some more cards of my own today as well.


Forgive the lack of links computer won't let me have two windows open for whatever reason. Grrr.

My husband loves to fish. He NEVER brings home fish. He says it's more about out smarting the fish. I asked him once how it made him feel to be smarter then a fish. LOL
