A Quiet Saturday....

Today was a quiet day all to myself.  That hardly ever happens!  My 17 year old went to spend the weekend with my 21 year old in Minn, my son was invited to a friend's cottage for the weekend and my husband went down to spend the day with his father.  And I stayed home and it was glorious!  I puttered, cleaned, crafted, read and went on my daily 2+ hour walk.  I loved every minute of today.  I hope you all loved the day that you had!  I crafted a card for a new challenge.....I have seen alot of people coming across my feed who are doing the challenge on the City Crafter Challenge Blog.    I had never heard of this blog/challenge before so I thought I would check it out.  And when I saw that the current challenge was to make a project that used the word "sun" or used an image of a sun a card, completely formed, popped into my head - really, that never happens.  I had made a flower a week ago for a HA scramble and while I was making it I thought to myself that the flower looked so sunny so today I decided to make another one in hot sun - type colors and use that as my sun image.
  
Take it, it\


I also was able to use the word "sun" in my sentiment so it all worked out perfectly....and I really like this card alot!  The stamped flower and leaves are Hero Art and the sentiment is Magenta.  Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you're also having a wonderful weekend!

Be well,
Sheila
