June 25

Well, I wouldn't say that we're out of the fog yet, and I'm not guaranteeing daily postings yet, but it sure felt good to stamp tonight. And....TOMORROW IS THE LAST DAY OF SCHOOL!!!!! (Okay, we still have to go back for staff stuff on Friday - but the end is near.) :)

I did the sketch challenge today. This card looks brighter in person. I decided not to clutter it with tags & stuff. I even tossed out the trial of a background print of some sort. This will probably be the last time I use these little seed packages for a while because I have now used up all that I stamped, so that's a good thing.

The central image is matted on bashful blue, but I've also coloured the background with marker and then dabbed it with the edge of the brush tip. I guess I was sort of going for a Monet look. I hope not to have offended the Master!

Thanks for dropping by, I will be posting more often now for sure!!! - JOAN
