OUR CRAFT LOUNGE SKETCH CHALLENGE

Hi all!! I hope you are enjoying your weekend!! Yesterday was a busy day for me - I got my hair highlighted and cut, got a pedicure and my hands done, and ran a few last minute errands to get ready for my first day on Monday - I swear, it feels like my first day of school, lol!!! So, not much stamping got done which is why I had nothing to share yesterday. Today however, I want to share the card I did for the OCL sketch challenge!! I love the sketch and had fun playing along AND I got to use one of my new stamp sets called Life's a Beach - such a fun set!! I had fun with it; notice my little crab is having himself a drink on the beach, LOL?! I wanted to create a nice summery card I can send to a friend just to say hello and so this baby is going into the mail tomorrow.*wink* Today I am spending in my stamp room making some projects to share for the upcoming week and catching up on some scrappin' that I need to do!! And, a reminder - the ScrapandStampSaturday kickoff challenge is still going on until this Friday so if you have not yet had a chance to get your layout done, you still have time! We are THRILLED with the response so far - the pages have all been fabulous, I am really impressed with the mad scrappin' skills of all of the stampers out there!! I will leave you with the recipe as I am off to check out what you are all up to and get my stampin' on!! Enjoy the rest of your weekend - I will be back tomorrow with something to share, but won't be able to blurf until I get off work - ACK!! THAT will take some getting used to!!! Thanks for stopping by - I love ya for it!!
