Want a FREEBIE?????



WOW...Friday already..This week has absolutely flown by for me. Kinda scary to think it is already the middle of July. It has been a pretty good week though, so I shouldn't complain. Abbey has started at a new Gymnastics school after 7 years at her previous gym, so that was a bit hard, but she has settled in nicely and is loving every minute of it. Ryan has started Ice skating lessons, and after a VERY timid start, he ended up just loving it (phew). So with all the driving lately I officially feel like a TAXI CAB! We did take a break and join some great friends for a day at the beach, and we had a FABULOUS time. We are so blessed to have such wonderful people in our lives! Now here I sit on a Friday night writing My post and dreaming of Sat night......what happens tomorrow night you ask.....Pat Benatar concert, and yes, she is still alive...LOL! The reason I say that is, I was chatting with my younger brother (34) and he had mentioned that he was going to see Kid Rock, and I said "oh, really", I am going to see Pat Benatar, and he said "oh....silence.....she still alive?" Seriously, I am only 38, and he acts like I am elderly! Anyways, I can't wait to see a oldie but goodie!!!

So, anyone interested in a FREEBIE????? Starting today, Mabelle R.O, from Whimsey and Star studios is hosting a challenge over at Crafters Digital Art Center from July 15-July 27th . Use this fabulous sunflower image ( which you can get a CDAC), create a card following this sketch and color palette and link up,and one random winner will win 2 FREE images of their choice from Mabelle.:

If you're not a member of CDAC, no worries, you can sign up and it's FREE, and they host all kinds of Digi challenges. One more place for you to explore your creativity!
I used mabelle's image and followed the challenge, and I dug through my paper and viola, I found this great DP my friend Kim Howard had given me. Thanks Kim, it's perfect for my card!

Well, that is all for me today. I am off to color 30 digi images. Last fall I was chosen to be the Vice President of my nursing class, and as VP, I am responsible for various responsibilities, and one of my responsibilities is helping out with the incoming freshman nursing students. I volunteered to make 30 tote bag name tags for the freshman class.....YIKES....what was thinking :) Anyways, I have been doing coloring a little bit each night hoping to have them all colored and made in time for freshman orientation. So, that is how I will be spending my Friday night...getting inky! I hope you all have a fantastic weekend, and happy crafting friends!

I think your brother needs a kick in the behind LOL! Got a good laugh out of that one! Pat B sang this song on a TV special honoring Harry Chapin years ago that is still stuck in my head...she has an amazing voice. I am sure your bro doesn't even know Harry Chapin either! Have a great time!
