Happy Day

It is amazing to me that it is Wednesday already!!

Where is my week going?

If you have been reading what I write here, you know that I am trying to use up every scrap I have - or every paper I have in my stash and haven't touched in forevah!  I do buy for when I work on swaps, but for the most part, all of the challenges I work on use things I have in my craft space!

Today's card is no different - I have had this paper and not known what to do with it - I have a son, and rarely use 'girly' colors.  Therefore, I have has a lot of pinks to use for my challenges.



This card fits:
SFC #44 - the sentiment is from Squigglefly's Inside Out like and required DOODLING.  All the gold is drawn in with my favorite pen!
Tuesday Morning Sketches #41 - rather than a sketch this week, Melissa wanted SOFT HUES, FLOWERS and RIBBON.
365 Cards - was challenging crafters with white space.
Pile It On - asked you to "Say it with words", so, no image.

This concludes my submissions for the Spring Hop going on at Pile It On, 365 Cards, Practical Stampers, Sketchy Thursdays, the Cuttlebug Spot, and Scrap that Poetry.

I am sure this is just the first of many times I will be stopping by these sites to get some wonderful inspiration.  I am not sure anyone every thanks the people behind these blogs, so - HATS OFF TO ALL OF  YOU!

On a side note, I am feeling very blessed to have 'found' a Cuttlebug at a great price and can't wait to pick it up and start using it!


EDITED TO ADD:
This also fits the challenge over at the Crafty Ho's ~ to use only pastels....
