I apologize for not getting a post up yesterday. My sister is staying with us and I took on a big outdoor project this weekend. I decided on Saturday morning that I’d go to the local nursery to attend their tree auction. Each year they auction of shrubs and trees and I’ve never had a chance to attend. I ended up with the winning bid on 2 Serviceberry trees. So on Saturday Roger and I hauled home two trees and planted them. I’m not kidding when I say that it’s exhausting work. Sunday we barely did anything besides a few errands and yesterday I had a dentist appointment and I volunteered for the school district with Market Day pick up.
Today I decided to combine Mercy’s Tuesday Sketch #89 with the color challenge at SCS. This color combo was a stretch for me – Melon Mambo, More Mustard and Baja Breeze. I can’t say it’s something I would have come up with on my own, but I like the way the card turned out. I used Four of a Kind from Papertrey Ink.
I have some exciting news to share with you! I’ve accepted a Design Team position for SUO Challenges. If you don’t know SUO stands for Stampin’ Up! Only. The challenges will start next month on September 7th. I am no longer a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator but these challenges are for demonstrators and customers alike that enjoy using Stampin’ Up! products. I hope you’ll check the challenges out and play along with us. You can find the challenge blog here. Challenges will take place every other Tuesday.
