I kept it very, very simple yesterday.
I stopped in at Archiver’s last Tuesday evening, spending a little quiet time shopping by myself, and I found this trees stamp by Penny Black. I wanted to get it home and ink it up right away. It took me 5 days, but I got it done! 😉
I didn’t intend to use any challenges – I just wanted to create a card by myself. But I had printed out the ColourQ #105 colors a few days ago, and the paper was just sitting there on my desk, probably wondering when I would give it some attention. So I grabbed it and used the colors as my starting point.
I thought I would have more time to create today, being a Sunday. But, again, the time just didn’t add up. So I’m glad I used the inspiration colors and kept it simple, so that I was able to finish a card!

This might be the week where I crash and burn on this 31 Days challenge. We have invited a few of my daughter’s cousins over for a Friday night slumber party, to help celebrate her 8th birthday which is coming up in a few weeks. Not to worry, though, I’ve already found the disco ball for decorations, so we’re already mostly prepared! ;-D
It should be fun. But it will be a challenge preparing for that and also trying to work in crafting time. I’m hoping for the best of both worlds! We might even end up taking 2 days off from lessons this week ((gasp)). Haha!
Thanks for stopping by today. 😉 I hope you have a great week.
