The Challenge #15 - Black Rose

Hi friends!  I hope you had a great weekend!  The weather was nice here and I enjoyed my family time.  DH makes sure weekends are for family and isn't shy about giving anybody the stink eye who's not with the program.  SO I'm usually not blogging on the weekends - time to step away and get recharged!  


A new challenge starts today at The Challenge.  The Challenge is another wonderful creation by Lesley Croghan and is hosted on her blog Always Playing with Paper.  Lesley is the creator of Fusion, Dynamic Duos, Seize the Birthday, Seize the Sketch, Card Concept, and Merry Monday.  This time is double the fun because there is a color challenge, and a sketch challenge.  You can use either one that inspires you, or you can incorporate them both together like I did. 

 

This is my last time playing The Challenge as a DT member.    The past four months have just flown by. I really enjoyed the opportunity of getting to know these ladies better.  They're all so talented and always inspire me.   I know I'll be visiting whenever I can and just wanted to thank them for  making me feel so welcome
