Thinking of You

This weeks challenge at Sassy Cheryl's Challenge blog was two fold. The first part was to create a Thinking of You card, which I have to say was the easier part of the challenge. The second part was to decide if Cheryl really knows her Design Team like she thinks she does. Cheryl had to take the DT Cards and decide who created them. Our part of the challenge was to say if we thought she was right or not. I had a third challenge, and that was to create a card while entertaining my 3 year old grandson, MonkeyMoo.

My DH took MM(MonkeyMoo) to look for deer in the truck to give me some crafting time alone. I got the card part done using a Sketch from this week's Sketch Saturday Challenge. Papers are from The Paper Studio. This cute little boy hugging his teddy bear is called Love's Healing Hands, and you can find him and many more wonderful images at Sassy Cheryl's Store. Doesn't he look like he's hugging that bear because he's missing someone? I can't help but hope that MonkeyMoo doesn't get to missing his parents so much, that he's got his stuffed monkey John squeezed up this tight. He's still got a week left on his visit. The sentiment was saved in my computer as MM Designs, but for the life of me, I can't find a link to the site. At any rate it was the perfect sentiment.

As for whether Cheryl is right or not, I'm going to have to vote yes. I wish I had time to print them all off to study them, but not only do I have a 3 year old to entertain, but I also have my older daughter and my 16 year old grandaughter flying in today to spend the week. I'm just thankful I found time to be creative and play in the challenge.

Thanks for stopping by and I love hearing from you.
