Are you having a good start to your weekend? It poured most of the day here today, but the weather man says it's supposed to be a wonderful weekend.We'll see.
Today's card has 2 purposes. It is my submission for the 2nd round of Inky Impressions design team,and it also my card for this weeks blogger's challenge.
For my card today,I used Inky Impressions "Lilis Secrets" stamps, and combined it with the Blogger's Challenge Sketch. I did turn the sketch around,but that counts. I find the Inky Impressions images so great to color. They are wonderfully etched stamps and so easy to work with. I hope I get another chance to play on Nicole's Inky Impressions team.
On a different note, I have had a pretty roller coaster kind of week. Monday was a typical day. The kids and I kinda hung around. Tuesday, I went to the beach with a friend and her kids and had a great time until I got home and the phone rang. My cousin was on the other end told me that my uncle had just passed away. Well, I was just heart broken. I also had to tell my kids that our Cape cod vacation had to be put off while we attended my uncles services. They are still young and really don't understand. Wednesday we went and spent the day with my cousins (my uncle's 5 daughters). Thursday I got the chance to go Mass General Hospital and visit my BF's baby. He was born at 26 weeks and has been doing amazing. I was very excited to finally get to meet baby Evan. He is just soooo sweet. He was born weighing 2lb 7ounces, and now 8 weeks later he is up to 3lbs 14 ounces. He is amazing.
Friday night was the wake and Saturday morning is the funeral, and then the after get together. It really has been a dozy of a week and I look forward to Sunday when my family and I head down to the Cape to relax. I may even have a few umbrella drinks to relax!
This last project was a project I did a while back, but I wanted to use it for my second project for my Inky Impressions.
