It has been absolutely beautiful here this weekend. The past few weeks have been so busy that this weekend of doing very little has been a very welcome change. Kip and I have gotten to spend some time together and I was even able to cook a couple of different meals that we ate together! Four more days of school then my schedule will slow down somewhat. That means more crafting time for me. Thanks for dropping by!

I actually combined two challenges to make this card. I admire people that can combine multiple challenges, but when I do I usually forget at least one element (or two!) that was a part of one of the challenges. I thought I would be safe combining a color challenge and a sketch challenge. Jennifer from the Designing D.I.V.A.S. group issued the challenge to use the colors Red, White and Blue on a project. The challenge in the Hanna Stamps forum on Splitcoast was to use this sketch. I was in a coloring mood today and wanting to practice some of the things that I learned in my recent Copic class so I stamped several Rileys and colored them. My card tonight uses Super Moose from Hanna Stamps, paper from the Paper Studio, a button that I got from Target's Dollar Spot last year and some ribbon that came from Hobby Lobby. I love that lock of hair falling down onto Riley's forehead, it reminds me of Christopher Reeve's Superman.
