Another dreary rainy day here in the Chicago area - instead of "April showers bring may flowers" I'm singing "rain rain go away come back another day". Do you remember all the rhymes from your childhood? Jumping rope was a big deal when I was a kid - I never mastered double dutch but I do remember a few of of the songs... remember Miss Mary Mac? Oh come on now!!!!! All dressed in Black... With Silver Buttons.... All Down Her Back?..... OK I'll stop now.
Well I don't jump rope anymore - but I still play a few games. Today I'm playing along with The Cloud 9 Blog Hop. Check out the inspiration photo here - what a beautiful table setting. I picked up on the pretty flowers and colors - and a pop of yellow since I can't have a sunny day - I will settle for a smile! If you want to play along you better hop to it! The challenges are posted once a month on the 9th and you have until 10 am on the 12th to enter. Great way to get stamping with those WPLUS9 stamps and you just might win a free set - can't beat that. Oh and did I happen to mention guest designer this month and winner from last time - my friend Vickie Zimmer - I hope you'll check out her design - she made two for us!
I've been looking for some new places to play too - if you'd leave me a comment with your favorite challenge site I'd love to hear it!
