Good morning everyone! Yesterday I stayed inside most of the afternoon to avoid the heat wave, but also to work on a few challenges. The card I have to show you today was a really fun one to make, and so fast! It's fast because it required no coloring at all.
I did this for the challenge at 365 cards blog. It is a unique challenge this week too! You were to create a silhouette of an image on your card or project. It's cheating if you use an image that is already a silhouette!
I also followed the sketch at the Sweet Stop blog, but I'm not sure if I'm allowed to use images that aren't sweet'n sassy images. Anyway, here's my card!

Do you recognize the Little Rocker image from squigglefly? I just opened it up in my photo program and used the paint bucket feature to fill in my image with black! How easy is that? It makes for a pretty cool effect don't you think?
I meant to tell ya'll yesterday that when I was talking about my mailman at work being grumpy on Fridays, he's just acting that way. He's not really being grouchy. It's all fun teasing between us. I did give him the card though and he said I was exactly like that happy baby all smiles and clapping my hands when he comes in on Fridays! LOL!
I enjoyed breakfast out with my friend yesterday. It was nice to be able to visit for a bit and catch up with each other. Life moves at too fast a pace much of time. Today I've got to plan my menu for the week and make a trip to the grocery store. I hope to find time to craft too!
Lots of stuff happening this week. Tomorrow is Squigglefly's challenge on their blog, Wednesday and Thursday is the Squigglefly Blog Hop (yes, there are prizes involved!), and Saturday is Papercraft Planet's huge 4th of July blog hop! Whew!
Have a wonderful day and thanks so much for visiting me!
