We arrived back in town Saturday afternoon from our week-long vacation, and I was eager to find a challenge to help me create something before the withdrawals swallowed me whole. Just kidding – it wasn’t that bad. We had a nice vacation, but I was definitely ready to get crafty!
I was bummed that there just wasn’t enough time for me to play along with most of the challenges I had missed last week. But I have to just let it go. We’re beginning our homeschool studies this week, adding in the twin preschoolers. Between all the prep work and implementation, I have my work cut out for me.
I won’t be able to do everything. And when considering my priorities, cards will not be at the top of the list. Hopefully I’ll get a sufficient fill in each week, though, and still be able to participate with things. If all else fails, I’ll have to stay up late every now and then to make some time. 😉
It is Color Splash week, with the splash being red. I wanted to try those rumpled/distressed modern-looking circle flowers. I like the way the flower turned out, but I had a little trouble embossing the sentiment with white powder. I made the photo large only, because I’m embarrassed. But if you enlarge the photo you’ll see the little specs of powder that got ‘stuck’ and I couldn’t brush them out before or scratch them off after embossing. It’s a little disconcerting to me, but I think I’ll get over it. Eventually.
