It's time for a Challenge!

Hi Everyone!

Hope you have been warm and well!!  Two things we haven't had here in Rhode Island!  I had been sick but not as bad as most people.  I've been busy with the new challenge blog 613 Avenue Create and this week we have another Anything Goes Challenge with an optional twist to use the colors Blue, Cream and/or White.  Here is my card and I used an image from our sponsor DigiStamps4Joy.

I used Copics, Prismacolor pencils/Gamsol and chalks on this one image!  Guess I have commitment issues LOL!  The card base is a Spellbinders die, the detailed die is by Memory Box, paper by Martha Stewart and some Jolee's Hotfix Crystals.

Hope you can join us for the challenge or just come visit our neighborhood at 613 Avenue Create!

Thanks for stopping by!

A wonderful card...remembering MLK

Today is Martin Luther King Jr. day here in the states.  What an inspiring and compassionate man he was, I can't even image the things he would have accomplished if he were still here.  He changed the world in the short time he was here and I am thankful for that. 

I was reading a post about craft room storage ideas at Louise Brigden At Home and she has some good ideas.  I try to use magnet as much as possible for storage as well and someday I will get around to posting some pics for you! You should check out her Copic storage idea.  Anyway, I noticed a card she made with a quote from MLK.  I absolutely love the quote and her card!  It is beautiful with such detail and just perfect for the quote.

Hope everyone is having a good day!  And don't for get about our new challenge blog 613 Avenue Create!
This week we have an Anything Goes theme with an optional twist to use kraft paper.  So come join us!

         Verve I Heart U
papers:  My Mind's Eye "Love Me" 6x6 pad, brown from Martha Stuart paper pad
