Create Joy

Happy Tuesday!  I hope that is cooler where you are.  Today is suppose to hit 90 degrees here.  I like warm, but not Hot!!!   Luckily it is suppose to cool down tomorrow.

Today is the Going Grey with Scrap-Creations challenge.  This week is a sketch and to use Basic Grey paper.  It was a really easy sketch to work with and who doesn't have Basic Grey paper?   We also have a wonderful sponsor, Stampotique Originals.  They have a wonderful variety of stamps.  I would say they have something for everyone.  I picked Arty.  Isn't she adorable!  She has paint brushes in her hand or you can say she has Copics.  When I saw her I said "that's the one for me"!  You can see a sampling of the different variations of stamps by checking out all the DT cards.  Once again, they did a fabulous job.

The other wonderful challenges this card fits into are:

Pile it On - Out of the Box - I choose Paper Piecing because it is something I don't normally do even though I do like it when I see it on other people creations.

Basic Grey - Punch It! - I love punches.  I punched the center piece (all 3 papers) and the corners.

Hanna & Friends - Photo Inspiration - It was a beautiful picture of a house on the water.  I choose my inspiration from the colors.  There was blue (water), green (grass), and  beige (walkway)

Stamptacular - Pearls & Swirls - I have pearls everywhere and used my new BG paper with the swirls in the background.
The Diva Stamper - Photo Inspiration - When I first looked at the photo of Makeup and the Makeup bag I saw the makeup.  We use makeup to make us look good and feel good.  Stamping makes me feel good by relaxing me and taking my mind of everything else.  I picked Arty because she is a crafter which is where my inspiration came from.  Great Photo!

Thanks for stopping by.  I really love all the comments people leave me.  Thank you to everyone who takes a moment to tell me what they think.
