Remember me?

Remember me?....I know, I's been three weeks since my last post.  I just needed a little time to rejuvenate and soak up summer.  It's going by so fast - I can't believe my son will be starting 5th grade in less than two weeks...let the school shopping begin!

I have several things to share with you today.  First are several cards made using various challenges from the last couple of weeks (I'm so behind in posting them).

This first card incorporated Wplus9's Color Cue {6} Challenge with SCS card sketch challenge (SC290).
I think this color combo and sketch are both keepers!

And this next card was made using a Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge (WMSC7).  This was  nice  and simple - a sketch to keep on hand for making those last minutes cards.

And last, but not least - I wanted to share with you an Etsy item I've had my eye on forever! 

 Here's the Esty seller's description:  "A beautiful and girly, yet modern and urban wristlet that is perfect for a night out on the town or for the everyday grab and go bag. Made from super soft black Italian leather. The front is aligned with three flowers... two are walnut and the other is Tiffany blue. Removable wrist clip (you can also attach your keys to the clip)."  
Don't you just love it?!  Okay, I really need to stop drooling over it, and finally break down and give this little beauty a home.

Well - that's it for me...I now get to start the laundry, pay the bills, and get the kids up and ready for our day.

Live well,
