Some Challenges and Awards

Happy Sunday!

Hope you're weekend is going well! We had dinner out with friends last night and are now enjoying a relaxing day inside out of the rain.

I decided to make good use of this rainy day and catch up on some blog challenges. I made one card using the challenges from Cute Card Thursday, which was "A Family Affair" then I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday and the color combo from Copic Color Challenge.

Seeing as it is a rainy day out there, what better stamp to use for this card than Rainy Day Emma from Whimsy Stamps! I colored her with Copics in the colors Brick Beige and different pinks and browns. Brick Beige was one of the Copic Color Challenge colors along with Blush and Shock Pink. Well I didn't have all those colors in Copics but I did use some Blush Blossom and Sarah Sand cardstock and then some Porcelain BasicGrey paper which has a pink color. The flowers are also a blush and pink with some pink and clear rhinestone brads. The sentiment was hand written in black ink. I plan to give this card to my aunt who kindly took care of the kids last night so my hubby and I could do dinner with our friends!

I've also received a couple awards over the last week and I'd like to also share those and thank the lovely ladies that gave them to me. First is this award, which I received from Erin! Thank you so much, it means a great deal coming from you! It's always an honor to receive such nice awards from such wonderfully talented crafters and friends!

This next award is from Michele! This award made me smile Michele, thank you so much for thinking of me. I will display it with honor as well.

The rules for these awards include displaying them on your blog with links to those who gave them out. Also displaying them on your sidebar and then passing them along to other bloggers who inspire you. So I would like to share both of these awards with all of the fabulous friends who take the time to visit me each day and leave such thoughtful comments. You all are amazing and I love that I have such truly special friends all around the world! Thank you!

Enjoy the rest of your day! Hope it's dry and warm where you are. Happy Stamping!! :)
