"To You From Me"

Good Afternoon Everyone! It's Thursday! Yay! I am so excited because Michael and I are going to the theater this weekend! An actual PLAY, this is new to me! The first play I ever went to was last fall at our local community theater! This is going to be such a treat for me! (I know little things make me ecstatic! Well, growing up on a dairy farm, in rural Wisconsin... there wasn't much time for any social activities! LOL!) Okay, enough about that!

Today I have a creation to share with you that I created for The Stamping Boutique. But I bet you didn't know that The Stamping Boutique now has a group located at Simply Scrapping Crafts! And that isn't the best part... the best part is, we are now having 2 challenges a month over there! The first one starts on the first Wednesday of every month and the second starts on the third Wednesday! They both run until the end of each month! How cool is that? The first challenge that was announced on Wednesday, May 4, 2011 is "Anything Fantasy"! You can use any image that you would like! The second challenge that was announced Wednesday, May 18, 2011 is a "Wedding-ish Theme", which will also run until the end of the month and you can use any image. My creation today is an inspiration for the first challenge! So for more details on these awesome challenges, become a member to Simply Scrapping Crafts Ning Site and a member of The Stamping Boutique Group! We would LOVE to have you join us! (Pssst... Aletha already has some awesome inspiration creations there for the first challenge! So be sure to let her know what you think!) And I will be entering this creation into the Simply Scrapping Crafts Color Challenge (Week 3)! Yep, they have challenges also, so be sure to check them out! And don't be shocked by the other groups that you will find there also! (Pssst... Aletha has Ippity there and Heather has Freshly Brewed Designs there too! Hee-Hee) I did follow a sketch to create this card... it is by Sweet Sketch Wednesday! Arlana has another wonderful sketch this week! (See Below) Okay... now that I have told all the things that I could think of as of this minute, I will continue with the post! LOL!

Hi Sara, love your card and what a great image. Love your pretty colours especially the turquoise and pink together. I know what you mean about living on a farm growing up, I lived on a Dairy Farm in New Zealand and it was all work and no play I really can't remember when my parents had a proper holiday. But now I'm all grown up life has changed and I'm living in a country town but in the town, married to an Irish farmer that isn't farming bringing our boys up to appreciate music the theatre and all types of sports so that they have a good understanding and grounding. Great card and thanks for sharing with us this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and good luck.
