I looked at my daytimer this afternoon to write some new events in - and realized once again how fast time passes....or approaches. Spring break is almost here for northern Alberta, Easter follows directly after, then I have a Music Convention at the end of April, head to Calgary on the May long weekend.....and then school will be done - Yikes!!!! (And then it starts all over again - teaching really can be a weird profession!)
Sock monkey came out to play today for a couple of challenges...
Mojo Monday Sketch is used....didn't really mean it to look like the eggs were falling into her basket from the sky - but hey - whatever works!
365 Cards used the image of beautifully decorated Easter eggs in baskets shown here. Sock Monkey needs a bit more practice with colouring her eggs...but
Try a New Technique at Splitcoast today was to create your own Designer Series Paper.... I spritzed the top piece and the matt behind Sock Monkey with the colours from the printed DSP - Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery and So Saffron.
Squigglefly wanted you to have something shiny on your card - which are the rhinestones. However.....I created the second card below, with Shy Bear specifically for this.
I could swear I heard a robin singing when I got out of the car at school this morning.....you know how you notice a song that you haven't heard for a while? It's a thing with me - I always stop in my tracks to listen to whichever bird is singing at the moment.
For the "Let it Shine" challenge at Squigglefly this week I added a bit of Crystal Effects to each of the leaves because they're so fresh and new on the tree. I also added the bling at the bottom .
The sketch for this card is from 365 Cards.
Well...I'm off to bed because I need to be rested, clear headed and patient tomorrow when taking the hand chime and hand bell groups to the Music Festival here in town. Gotta wonder about the fact that the festival is at the same time as report cards....yikes - talk about stress.
Ah well....it makes us strong!
Thank you so much for dropping by!!!! Hope you are having a totally terrific Tuesday!
