I have been phoneless since Friday morning. It kinda throws a wrench into things when I’ve been using my phone to take pictures for the blog. So I had to dig out my old camera. Aaaaaanyway, I just spent a wonderful weekend full of crafty fun with friends. Good friends and good crafty fun really help distract me from a dead phone. (Mostly.)

So the first card I worked on was this sketch for the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge. I splattered a few different ink colors from a paintbrush to create the background. The stars are silver confetti, though they look black in the picture.

The current Color Throwdown Challenge palette is a happy sunny one. Nice to see, since it decided to snow this week. OK, not much and it didn’t stick, but still rude after being in the 60’s last week. So how fun is this circle background? I randomly water-colored some with yellow re-inker. I finished off the card with a few enamel dots in black & white.

Thinking of You – CTD338

I wasn’t feeling the greatest this weekend, but on the up side, sticking close to home in my comfy purple flannel pants (with sock monkeys on them!) gave me lots of crafty time. I had time to play along with the Color Throwdown Challenge for this week. That leafy, flourishy background stamp is quickly becoming one of my favorites! I love how it looks stamped in white on kraft.

I stayed up past my bedtime tonight to finish and post my card for the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge. I haven’t missed one in over 2 years and didn’t want to start skipping now. So you get a picture complete with glare from my desk surface.

P.S. Just between you & me – I stuck the front panel on the card base upside down. I’ll address that later with that miracle-worker Undu. Don’t tell anyone?

I had some fun with a shaker card for my MFT Wednesday Stamp Club card this week. I like using sequins for shaker cards. Then I don’t have to worry about having gaps in my adhesive and flinging glitter everywhere.

It’s been a long weekend, but here’s my card for the Color Throwdown Challenge this week. It’s hard to see in the picture, but I used vellum for the mason jar, and added a bit of grey on the edges with my Copics to make the edges stand out just a bit more.
