New Challenges to Share

Happy Saturday!

The kids and the man are all off doing their thing today, so I got a little time to play in my craftroom! Yay! I perused all of the challenge blogs last night to see which ones I might like to do this week and I found two that looked like a lot of fun. They both started on Saturday too, so I figured I could get going on them right away :) 

I started with the challenge from The Dynamic Duos blog. They had a beautiful springy color scheme and then I chose to do another sketch from The Retrosketches blog. Below is what I have come up with. I am having so much fun with these challenges!! I don't know what took me so long to finally get the courage up to play along with some of them.

The papers and small flower are from Stampin' Up!, the button stamps are from Verve and the larger flower and stem are from Papertrey Ink.

Thanks so much for taking a peek and have a great weekend!
