It's Dripping Happy

After 3 days of absolutely no crafting, I couldn't wait to get home and get busy crafting today. We were up early at the camphouse, and I packed up everything and was home and had it all unloaded by 8:30. I told myself(yeah,I talk to myself) that I couldn't have my latte(a necessary fix for each day, thank you Deb) until I got home. It was just like dangling a rabbit in front of a greyhound. I WAS motivated.

I was in the shop and first off had to make a sympathy card for Phindy. One of her sisters passed away. Fortunately Phindy was there and able to be with her and say good-bye. I still need to write my message and that will certainly be the tougher task.

After lunch, I was able to get to work on my Sassy Cheryls Challenge card. We were charged to make a card using light blue and/or tan and peach. I got the blue(although it's got some green tones to it) and the peach. I love this image from Cheryl called Paint Something. I picked up this MS punch on mark down last week at Walmart for a song. It's called Drippy Goo and perfect for this image. Paper is called Fruity Dots and cardstock is some I had on hand. I went into PSE to create the sentiment. I finally found the drop shape and figured out how to use it. I think this card can be sent to anyone, mother, wife, friend or child.

Thanks for stopping by. I feel so much better for having a crafty fix today.
