Crafty Gals March Challenge
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Mine was fantastic!!!! We spent Friday with our son Reginald who graduated from Navy Boot Camp & he's now in Florida! It was so great to see him & we've been talking on the phone ever since....I can't wait to get his new address so I can continue to send him happy mail! Friday was also Bianca's 12th birthday & she was so excited to spend the day with her big brother! He totally spoiled her too.....took her on an awesome shopping spree which took her by total surprise! I'm so glad that he's doing very well & has such a level head....I couldn't be prouder of him!
Anywhooo, onto my post for today. My creation was made for this month's Crafty Gals challenge. Melina asked us to make a project with Blessings in mind using 2 different shades of green along with a thankfulness or blessings sentiment. We had to make sure there was a nature element included and she really just wanted us to go green with our challenge so as you can see, I used Garden Green & Wild Wasabi cardstock & ink colors. I threw in some white as my balancing color, added a couple of brads & ribbon along with a bit of texture as my finishing touches and my creation is done! Please be sure to check out the rest of the girls creativity & leave them some love:
Well, I'm off to get ready for this weekend's Stampin' Up! regional in Milwaukee. I need to make some swaps....nothing like working under pressure!!! Thanks so much for stopping by & have a great rest of the day!
Until Next Time,
Hugs & Love,
