Children!


Art Journey's eleventh art challenge is all about CHILDREN! This is a GREAT challenge for me, as I have three little grandchildren visiting me here in Nova Scotia for the whole summer!




For my card, I used three different Art Journey stamps: the grass from the Bird Boy set right here, a beautiful little girl , and the quotation from the Summer Girl Set.

The Netherlands Art Journey website has been completely redesigned, and it's SO easy to navigate now...in English! Hope you can take some time to see their beautiful stamps!

There's a LOT of inspiration over at the challenge site, with direct links to all designers' blogs. There's also an opportunity for you to win a ten euro's gift certificate to the Art Journey store!

The very LAST Wednesday Stamper challenge is simply to use at least one rubber stamp. I'm so sorry to see the Wednesday Stamper challenges ending. They were some of my favourite play dates with myself!

Over at Just For Fun, the challenge is anything goes...another easy one!

The current Stampin 'for the Weekend challenge is...favourite things. You ought to go visit...see the crafter's version of the Sound of Music song "My Favourite Things."

The Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge is embossing. I thermal embossed the little girl on mycard, using Versafine Coal Black Ink and Super Fine Detail Clear embossing powder.

Over at Our Creative Corner, they want to see YOUR style! Go play!

Thank you SO MUCH for visiting today. Your comments mean so much to me!

Wishing you a day filled with all the things you love...have FUN...make ART!

Deborah...this is a beautiful card. I am always so amazed when black and white is used and how striking and attention grabbing the bit of color can be.
