It's Fun Being a Kid

Happy Tuesday! I'm happy to say we actually saw some sun yesterday!  It is still cool here but that is normal for this time of year in the Northeast US.

Today is the Going Grey with Scrap Creations challenge. The theme today is to use 3 embellishments. My 3 are the brads, ribbon and charm. You should play along! Everyone has embellishments. The challenge this week is sponsored by Stamp N Plus Scrap N. You can win some of these adorable stamps. They have a wide variety of images that will fit everyone's tastes!!  They were kind enough to supply us with images to use in this weeks challenge. I picked this little guy fishing. Isn't he adorable? The minute I saw him I thought he would be so cute with a little scene. You also have a couple more days to join in their Blog Hop and win there too!  All the details are on their blog.

Check out what the other DT's did with their images.

Lisa Summerville - Guest Designer for April


The other challenges this card fits are:

Crazy 4 Challenges - Sketch - Making a scene means making a bigger focal area.  I was happy to see that this sketch would work with this.

Secret Crafter - A Day Out - How perfect!  I never thought there would be a challenge to fit this card so perfectly.

All Sorts - Stitching - I love faux stitching.  Actually I love real stitching better but I'm too lazy to do that.

Quixontic - Heavy Metal - I bought these cute dragonfly charms this weekend and thought one would look cute on this card.

Something Completely Different - D - Dragonfly - I thought a little boy fishing needed a bug on the card so I used my charm

Sweet Stampin - In Stitches - Faux or real stitching or something that makes us laugh.  I went with the faux stitching around the edges of the card.  I thought the card needed something else and the stitching worked well.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you like my card.  Thanks to everyone who leaves a comment.  It is great to sit and read them.
