Eekk, I'm late!

I can't believe I totally forgot to write up my post!  Ahhh!  It's been a little busy lately, with the kids going back to school, new baseball teams starting, and me going back to work that it totally slipped my mind!

Good news is that the card was ready!  Phew.

Today at Dream Valley Challenges we are challenging you to make a card for a child.  My card uses two Stampin' Up sets.  It's a fairly simple card with the image being colored with water colors.

Unfortunately the lighting was pretty poor when I tried to photograph it, so it seems fairly dark.  I need some suggestions on how to photograph indoors in the evening....

It's going to be a busy week here, I hope you all enjoy yours!  Don't forget to play along with our challenge at Dream Valley!

I can't believe that two weeks have gone by already!  Where is the summer going?  We are already in August, and I am not ready for the kids to go back to school yet!!!

Okay, rant over.  At Dream Valley Challenges today our challenge is to make a card or a project that is monochromatic.  I especially like making monochromatic cards when I use my Stampscapes stamps.  The scenes lend themselves so well to a single color scheme.

Here I have used Stampscapes stamps:  Lakeside Cove, Reeds Lg, Oak Branch Sm.

Oh, by the way, when you enter our monochome challenge at Dream Valley you will be entered to win free digis from Robyn's Fetish!

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:
