Don't look now....

...but I actually have something stamped to share!! I finally just decided I needed to sit down and take a minute instead of waiting for one to come! I was super excited to see Beate start up her weekend sketch challenges again so I decided to make a card for that! Check out her blog here if you want to give it a try!! I didn't have any particular card in mind when I sat down to stamp but I have been wanting to use this Darling Doodles paper since I got it !! After I looked through the papers the pomegranate piece with it's wavy lines reminded me of the water under the boat...so a boat card it was!! I stamped the boat with Staz-On and colored it in with my blender pens and ink pads. I also had to switch the circle and put it on the other side (from the layout Beate gave)...I needed to fill in the blank space on that side of the boat. That's about it...I kept it pretty simple!
I have enjoyed the kids being home and we have had a really nice break...but I would be lying if I didn't say I was looking forward to school tomorrow to have 5 1/2 hours of time to myself!! I have had a jumbled mess of ideas going through my head of what to do with my time...none of which includes the things that need to be done! (like cleaning the house, taking the tree down, etc.) Oh well...Happy Monday....have a fantastic week!!

Cute card... the colors reminded me of Valentine's and made me anxious to see what you have in store. Valentine's is my favorite holiday and I always have to contain myself with the cuteness of everything!!
