To Market, To Market...

This should be a hoot - taking Memere Old (aka my mother) to the Farmers Market. At least there won't be any grocery cart NASCAR incidents. (hmmmm maybe I better wait to report on that...who knows what innocent 80 year old could be edged out of the way as MO elbows her way to the perfect cucumber?

Check back for more on this soon to be unfolding (and potentially zany and or dramatic) story. Just want to upload one card for now.

I'd Rather Be...

~Layer of Studio K (K & Co) Meadow & Breeze - I stamped lightly over this layer using Tim Holtz Old Paper Distress Ink on the Stampin' Up Weathered background stamp
~Vertical layer of dark brown cardstock topped with layer of faded red from Daisy D's Winter Fun pad
~Image is a digital drawing for adirondack instructions that I found on Bing, image printed on PTI Vintage Cream, colored using Copics and attached to layer of brown cardstock

Challenges:Our Creative Corner Weekly Sketch
Play Date Cafe color inspiration (for some reason I got pretty literal with this one...found the chair, then found the perfect colors in an odd mix of design paper collections - thank goodness for scraps!)

Thanks for stopping by. Comments and constructive criticisms welcomed and appreciated.
All good wishes,
