FCCB Challenge #254 ~ Anything Goes

Good morning & happy Monday! Did you all have a nice Father's Day weekend? I picked up my parents from the airport (they spent 2 weeks in Peru & South America). Then we came home & had a BBQ with my stepson, daughter-in-law, our 2 grandsons, (ages 1 & 3) and our Goddaughter (age 6). It was super fun!

Anyway, since it is Monday, that means it must be time for another FCCB challenge! I hope you are able to join us, or at least get some fantabulous inspiration from our design team's creations. We have recently expanded our team & let me tell you that these ladies are rockin' it! To enter and/or check out the challenge, click the link above or the box directly below.

Horsing Around

Hello my crafty friends! It's been a month since my last post, which is very unusual for me, but I've had so much going on & quite frankly I was experiencing a bad case of crafters block. I guess I just needed to take a little break & focus on other things in my life for a few weeks. Of course I can't exist without crafting for too long! I feel like I've got some of my creative mojo back now so it's all good.

I did something different & outside of my comfort zone for today's card. I've never been into coloring stamped images but I recently acquired some of the awesome new Zig watercolor markers, so I'm giving it a go. I watched a few videos & I'm starting to get the hang of using them, blending colors, etc. It's actually pretty fun!
