Monday Musings

Hi everyone... and happy Monday.

I spent a leisurely weekend enjoying Spring, some time at the KC Zoo to meet Spiderman (now I know you are jealous!)... am now sporting a sunburn and a stiff knee.  Rather than get out and about, I should just stay in my Craft Grotto where I can't get hurt!!  Do you have days like that?

I made this card using a digital image from Isabella's Sketchbook and had a lot of challenges in mind doing so. Still life art is one of my favs and I was able to capture the homey feeling that I was looking for with these papers and embellishments.

I'm entering this into these challenges:

Corrosive Challenge - Paper piercing
The Crafty Pad - Stitching
Rosie Dee's - Red and white - Recipe
Quixotic Paperie - metal
dareu2digistamp - metal
Artful Linkables - paint swatches
all that scraps - distressing - Stitching - Junk Drawer (paint swatches)
Lucy's Cards - Stitching
Isabella's Sketchbook - Sketch

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope your day is filled with lots of good things.
