LPS Monday, Raspberry Suite!

I LOVE it when you can combine a challenge but honestly, I am the biggest wuss. I feel guilty combining a challenge.

I can't help think that I am being unloyal to know....thinking of one challenge while also thinking of the other........not giving yourself wholly to one I said ....wuss...

Well, I threw caution to the wind and decided to be unloyal so I did THREE challenges in one today.

Little Paper Shop has a sketch challenge (with lots of exciting Anniversary detai
ls HERE!!) and Dawn McAvey's colour challenge and Moxie Fab has a challenge where sewing must be a part of your focal challenge. I don't know if my sewing went that far but I am entering it anyway!

The sketch was a cute one but kind of gave me gas, if you know what I mean......and the colours - there were so many of them (boy am I whiney today - Monday, snowy, bleh)
Kraft, Red, Vanilla, Berry and Soft Pink.

I pierced each scallop and then around the outside of the sentiment and then sewed my twine around the sentiment.

I hope you like my card better than our weather I said, snowy and bleh....perk up Lucky, it could always be worse!!!

Sorry I don't have much to gab about today. Got my carpets cleaned on Saturday, made Shake and Bake chicken last night for supper, and have to think about Easter this coming weekend because hubby's family is coming here. Menu? not yet......
