Hi everyone! I hope you are all having a fabulous week! I've been busy, but it's been good. Saturday was our 34th wedding anniversary and tonight we are going to eat out to celebrate since we were in Memphis on Saturday. I'm always glad when I don't have to cook dinner! It was really sweet though on Saturday because even though we were out of town and had left on Friday afternoon, Brock remembered to get me a card and bring it with us to Memphis. When he got up on Saturday morning he laid the card out by my coffee cup. Isn't that sweet? Yeah, I'm gonna keep him!
I've also been spending some time gathering up things for my blogaversary give away. It's been fun shopping for things! I think ya'll will be happy with the things I have.
Today's card is another one I whipped up after work yesterday. I did this for several different challenges. I find that I am able to fit more challenges in when I do them during the week rather than making several over the weekend, but I'm so much more pressed for time!

The Teapot Party this week is simple - do something floral and pretty! I chose to use the fabulous Columbine image that Lynne Stansbery drew. I have some columbine flowers growing in a pot on my porch right now and I took my color inspiration from them.
The challenge at My Time To Craft is another simple one; make a card for someone special. I'll be sending this card to my sister Becky whom you all know just underwent her second bone marrow transplant. One of the things she told me she missed being able to do this spring was plant flowers in her garden, so I think she will enjoy a floral card.
The challenge on Digital Tuesday is to color with chalks. I use chalks a lot for backgrounds and skies and grass, but this time I took the challenge all the way and colored everything except the flower stems with chalk. The flower stems were just a little too thin for me to get my chalks in neatly, so they are colored with colored pencils. It's hard to see in the photo, but the background is also chalked with a light blue.
The Cupcake Craft Challenge is to use some kind of sparkle on your card. I used a white shimmer card stock and there is also some glitter in the designer paper on this.
Monday I went to see a man who makes orthotics and I told him all about my experience with my previous orthotics and the pain I've been having in my leg and he is convinced that he can help me. He even thinks the low back pain I have on my right side will be helped. I will just be glad to get some relief for the pain in my leg. He's given me hope and I'm anxious for him to get these things made - although yesterday Riley was ready to end our morning walk before I was! Since it's gotten so warm during the days she stays up later in the evenings and sits outside in the backyard watching for coons or stray cats or possums to wander in. So I think she was still sleepy from being on watch all night! LOL!
Well, have a great day and thanks for looking!
