Final Wednesday of Summer.....

A couple of challenges here for my last Wednesday of the Summer. We (teachers) start back to school tomorrow and we get classes on Monday....a full week before Labour Day. I wonder how many will still be missing?

It took a little time for this first card to come together but I'm happy with the way it turned out.
Splitcoast - Sketch Challenge 295
Splitcoast - Clean and Simple - Colour challenge of Kraft (Crumb Cake), Turquoise and White.

I absolutely love this new embossing folder!!!!

I seemed to have misplaced the one little package of charms that I had so I don't fully meet the requirements for the challenge over at Crafty Creations today....

Crafty Creations - Recipe - 3 patterned papers, 2 ribbons or trims, 1 charm
Color Throw Down - Pretty in Pink, Rose Red, So Saffron and Pear Pizzazz.
Midnight Madness - Sketch

It's a beautiful day outside here - sunny, sunny!!!!! So I'm going to sit on the deck with a friend I haven't seen all summer......hope you have some sunshine and fun in your day today too.

Thanks for stopping by - Joan
