Challenges! Yay!

So, having stepped down from most of my blog teams, I now I have time to actually play in challenges!  (This is quite exciting for me.)

I am starting with One Layer Simplicity #17.  I have loved this challenge since it was over on Susan's blog -- I think I have played 3 times since they have become official with their own website. How sad is that! :)

The challenge is Round to Round.  2 circles on your one layer card.  No more, no less. However, you can add a sentiment :)

I knew exactly what I wanted to do and grabbed my circle stencil.  I have been so impressed by the blending I am seeing in blogland lately and wanted to see if I could do it too.  I believe I accomplished my goal - I love my card.  Nice, bright and vivid as all get out! :)  My hb is from CAS-UAL Fridays; Shenanigans.  I am also entering this into Simon Says Wednesday Challenge; masculine [using CAS-ual Friday]


I went on to play in the MOJO 400 Sketch Challenge!  400 - what an amazing milestone. It is nice to see a company last that long, and I hope many more years [and sketches] ahead.

BA BAM!  I got some new Zig Clean Color Real Brush Water Pens.  Do you love how vivid these puppies are? I certainly do, and I am in heaven on how easy these are to use!  My background stamp is Rubber Stampede, Wild Rose Background and my sentiment is from Penny Black; Heartfelt. Fortunately, Verve stamps aren't required. Apparently all of mine are retired, so winning some new - yeah that would rock!



Okay - I need to pace myself, I don't want to overload my Followers, plus, I need to cook dinner~


Thanks for stopping by~
