Isabella's 2nd Challenge and a FREEBIE !!

Came home from week in West Virginia Friday evening - had a really nice time with MIL and friends DH grew up with...and our oldest daughter and her family...(grankids Maggie and Thomas - they were a blast!)...fried chicken for 20 on Thursday!!! so unhealthy but soooooo good!!!! Didnt do ANY crafting (thankful that my auto-posts worked) so as soon as we got home....DH went straight to his office and I went straight to my craft room!!! we were both glad to be home....emerged about two hours later and had dinner together...then back to our "spaces"....gotta love it!!!  now....
Using Isabella's image Petunias for Isabella's 2nd Challenge :

1. Must use a digi stamp from Isabella's Sketchbook
2. Must be a floral/garden theme
3. There must be a round element somewhere on the card

and combined it with the sketch from MoJo Monday's. Unusual to combine two sketches but these went together perfectly. I love petunias....especially the purple ones.

colored with Copics, used Basic Grey stash dp, mini pearls and nestie! The winner of Isabella's challenge will be chosen at random and will receive a $6.00 gift certificate to Isabella's Sketchbook.

NOW....I'm really excited to share that over at Isabella's at PCP, she reached her first 100 followers!!! AND has given a Freebie to all members of her group over at PCP (pop over and join us...you'll see some familar faces!!)....freebie is adorable and I just had to make a card with it....

quick and simple (there is glitter but you know how that goes in a pic)...going to make several with this sentiment - can add anything I want to... as I need it.... on the inside!
such an adorable digi - and did I say "it's free!!!"   LOL

well, back to coloring....will sleep sometime tomorrow !! and when I awake...promise to stop by and visit and leave some "luv" everywhere.....so glad to be home!

have a blessed day,

Glad you had a great visit with your family. I received word last night that my Mom fell and broke her wrist....what is it with broken wrists with my Mom and me! Doctor says she is doing well...only had to put in cast...no surgery. Please say a prayer for her. Love your card....so beautiful. I too did this image in a card for the challenge....fraid mine is so amatuerish when I see this one done by the "Master"
