Blog Challenge--Better Late Than Never?

It's been quite a week! Hubby was gone all week....golfing, while I was home slaving away!! LOL On the upside, I was able to get a lot of my stamping projects done and out of the way! So, I'm catching up....but also had a workshop and only a 3-day turn around time to make and complete 30 swaps for a new Mini Catalog swap I'm participating in. (Will share that one soon.) It's been a busy stamping week!
Well, here it is, Monday and I'm only just posting my Blog Challenge from last Friday! This one is so very simple and features one of my very favorite DSPs, Cottage Wall. Although this is not officially from SU, we can probably safely assume that this paper will not return in the new catalog, which is a total shame....it is just so pretty! You see, one of the colors in the pallet is Orchid Opulence, and we KNOW that will soon be disappearing with the new Color Revolution. Which means, I need to use this paper NOW!
This week's challenge was a sketch challenge...not always the easiest theme for me. Guess that would be why it's called a "challenge," huh?!! When you check out what the other bloggers have done, you'll see that I turned the sketch on its side. The patterned background strips are none other than Cottage Wall DSP. Then layered on top (popped up on Dimensionals) is one of those fabulous Sending Love Notes/Hugs from the Occasions Mini....but they'll soon be gone! Remember, all offerings in this mini will disappear after April 30!! More mini catalog items used to create this card are Beautiful Butterflies Sizzlet and the saying from Well Scripted.
This card was super easy, with not much stamping....and oh!, so quick to put together! Thanks for stopping by today, and be sure to check out the others to see what they've all crated!!
