This is a father's day card I made for the Week 21 Challenge over on Basicgrey challenges blog. The rules were to make a card following the sketch AND use one basic grey product. I used paper from the offbeat collection pack.

I found the sketch really hard to do since I am no good at copying other's work, but then again, that's why it's called a challenge! (Plus now I have a father's day card out of the way).

The picture on the card is my father, his fiance, and my future sister and I at my college graduation back in May. (Pretty exciting!) :)

Here is a fun LO I did for two different challenges. I did the sunshine design for the "Cool shades and Challenge on My Scrap Stuff blog. The challenege was to use something with a sun or have "sun" in your title. I did a flower piece from a left over piece of scrap from my Sassafras Sweet Marmalade collection (which I LOVE). I also used scraps from another page in that collection to add the flowers in the bottom right hand corner. The letters and the background sparkly orange paper are brand new. This was done for the Old vs. New challenge at Tidbitz in Time.

The picture was taken as I was inpatiently waiting at a red light to cross the DE Mem. bridge. My puppy was on his way to poppop's for a weekend sleep over as I headed to the beach. He LOVES car rides, just gets nervous that I'm taking him to the vet or nail clipper... haha.

I added some journaling because I felt that the LO lacked a little once everything was layed out. But now I love the simpleness of it. :)
