Hope this finds you all relaxed and rested after a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend. We had a fun but very busy weekend, and I now need a vacation from my vacation! LOL All in all we had a great time with the family though. How about you?
The ABC Toys & Crafts Design Team is participating in another monthly challenge, and we’d be over the moon thrilled to death if you’d play along with us. This month, Sandy has created a fabulous sketch as a jumping off point. I found it to be very inspiring. I just had to pull out my “Ashley’s Blossoms” by My Cute Stamps. I love the idea of stamping directly onto the designer paper, so I did. First, I stamped the bird, and then I stamped the cage over the top of that. I feel like it gives the bird some dimension, don’t you?
STAMPS: Ashley’s Blossoms (My Cute Stamps), May Your Dreams Take Flight (A Muse)
INK: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Bahama Blue (Memento)
PAPER: Black Licorice CS (Poptone), Sweet Blush CS (PTI), Life’s Portrait DP (Webster’s Pages)

If you want to play along with us, Julie is offering a $20 store credit to a random participant. You can get all the details of the challenge right HERE. My favorite challenges are sketch challenges because I find it fascinating how others interpret the sketch. You really should give it a go!!
That’s it for me today. I’ve got buckets of laundry to do, so I’d probably better get started. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
