Two Challenges...

The card below is showcasing the Pals Paper Arts 47 challenge and the MOJO 143 sketch.  Be sure to check them out.  I have not played in awhile and it feels great to participate again.  The Pals theme this week was summer. I wanted to use stamp sets that had not been taken out of their case in awhile.  This is what I came up with....

Stamps:  Cute As A Bug, DD Daisy
Paper:  White, Black
Ink:  Black, Ruby Red, Yo-Yo yellow
Accessories:  Prisma Pencils, OMS, CB square embossing folder, Nestibilities circle dies,

The designer paper is from my scrap folder, which I haven't touched in a while. So, I have no idea where it came from.  My watermelon is not the color I wanted. I was trying to multi-task and picked up the wrong pencil and didn't realize it until I started blending the colors.  While coloring I was also trying to win tickets off the radio to see Heart.  I didn't win and my card has a bright watermelon that looks like juice came out of the ants bite. :)

I'm heading out to Birmingham for the weekend to watch Michael play soccer at the Alabama Sports Festival.  It should be fun but extremely hot.  I feel for the guys on the field but thank goodness they all love what they are doing.

Have a great day,

P.S.  I had this post all typed up and only needed to add my picture of the card.  Can you tell I was in a hurry...I forgot to put my white paper under my card to help with the shadow. Please excuse the reflection of the card on the car hood. Well, I left for Birmingham to go to the soccer game and forgot to upload the picture.  So here it is Sunday night, MOJO has closed the link and I'm barely getting the card posted before the Pals close their link.    Well...I had good intentions.  On the other hand, now I'm going to upload another picture to show you.  Below is a picture of a champ.  Michael's team won the Gold medal.

This picture shows how fun our HOT weekend was.  Thanks for stopping and I hope everyone also enjoyed their weekend.  Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful Dads out there!
