Whiff of Joy Challenge

Happy Thursday everyone!!! I feel like I haven't accomplished anything at all. But such is life. One thing got taken off my list so I shouldn't stress about that but I am thinking about adding something back on. It shouldn't really be a big deal but who knows.

Yesterday was a day I am glad that is over. Last night I think I figured out why things are all screwy in my house. I hope I have found the answer and after this weekend we will all be ready for the week again. Okay, I guess I can delve into it a little. Last weekend we didn't have church because of General Conference, I think I mentioned that previously. The weekend before that we didn't go to church because we were visiting my sister and my hubby was hunting. I think we need to recharge our spiritually batteries and then we should be doing better. So, with that said, I am so looking forward to Sunday.

Actually I can't wait for Saturday as well. Since we have church on Sunday and my family is about an hour away we decided to have Easter Sunday on Saturday. Also, Saturday is a very big day in my family. My grandmother will be turning 91 on Saturday. I am so glad that I am here to be able to celebrate with her. She is an awesome person and I am so glad to have her in my life and for my boys to know her.

I guess I should get on with the card right? I haven't been the best crafter lately so I needed something to kinda get me back into the swing of things. I started out making my boys their Easter baskets, they aren't finished, so I decided to check out the Whiff of Joy Challenge for this week. It seemed fun and plus I got to color another beautiful picture again.

Just a quick note before I get to the deets. I saw Nichole Heady mention this on her blog so I went with it. After I colored the girl with my prismacolor pencils I used my PTI snow white ink pad and dabbed it on the image. It softened the colors and I just love how it turned out. Also you probably aren't going to see this on the picture but I did use some Crystal Effects on her mug. I also used a white gel pen for highlighting and some steam coming from her "hot cocoa" mug heheheh ;)

Okay the deets:

paper: PTI SS white, SU! kraft, DCWV hot cocoa aka latte, and more DCWV (don't remember the name)

ink: palette black, PTI white canvas, SU! mellow moss

prima flowers, joann's brads, nestabilities to cut out the circle, cuttlebug floral embossing flower, ek success border punch, and making memories "funky with fibers"

As a side note, my laptop and completely gone capute (sp) so from here on out I am going to be using my desktop until we find out what is wrong or able to get a new one. That means I am not going to be able to do links. If there is something that you want to know how to get to, just ask. That also means that my watermark will not be used unless I am able to email the picture to my sister before posting it here. My desktop is old and cannot handle the requirements for Photoshop. Such is life. At least I gotta A computer that works, right?

Thanks for stopping by!!!
