Rolling Along....FMS133, SUO95


Sketch challenges are my favorite  - I love getting all of the pieces to work together.  Working in my craft room using Smoky Slate, Crushed Curry and Cindy's sketch definitely made me happy this week.  

I see Miss Emma is rocking those colors as well - in her own way of course. Sometimes all you need to be happy is a pickup truck, the breeze in your hair and a friend riding shotgun........







                Cindy designed a sweet sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Hope you join us!

                                                   

               SUO Challenge 95 is to use a flower or two or three!  I am definitely ready for flowers!

The Three Minute Egg........


\

I was rushing out the door yesterday to deliver Easter goodies when I realized I was one card short.  I ran upstairs to my craft room with every intention of grabbing a flowery card from my stash and putting a Happy Easter tag over the sentiment. Then I noticed the Watercolor Wonder note cards sitting on the edge of my desk.  I flipped this one vertically and the oval became an egg!  The chevron stripes from this past Paper Pumpkin kit quickly made the egg "Eastery!" The sentiment and the embellishment were added and I was done in under three minutes - truly amazing - and never ever happens in my world!  I even had time to snap a picture with my iPad before I ran back out to the car.  So now I am off again to an Easter dinner with the family.  Someone I know had a great time hunting eggs this morning!  Happy Easter everyone!





Don't forget to play along with us at Pals Paper Arts this week!  We are celebrating 200 posts and you could win all 20 of the Design Team's cards!

Celebrating 200! PPA200





Pals Paper Arts is celebrating its 200th post today - definitely a number worth celebrating! Our entire team of 20 designers have joined together to create monochromatic cards to showcase Stampin' Up's beautiful colors!  I followed this week's sketch and used Pistachio Pudding, Summer Silhouettes and Label Love to create a sweet baby card.  If you join in the fun and link up your card to the gallery you will have a chance to win all 20 of the DT cards this week. Check out the details at PPA!

I joined the Pals Paper Arts Design Team way back in August 2010 with Challenge #56.  Thought you might like to see the very first card I posted (using the retired set Just Believe) as a Design Team Member!





It's been a great adventure and I have met so many wonderful crafters along the way.  I am grateful to all of you for your comments, e-mails and support..........looking forward to the next 200 posts!


                        Hope you join us this week at PPA!
