Flowers for you

This morning I decided to play along with Tiddly Inks challenge - "Make It Match".  This is an easy one for me since I always try to match my colors to my papers, or paper piece with some of the same papers.  In this case I just used the colors from the Designer Papers for the vases and the flowers.  I had colored the centers of the flowers to match the way they are on the paper, but since they have little black dots in them, it is hard to see that.  This was a really quick card to put together, especially since I already had the image colored and had the paper picked out ~ all just sitting in a pile waiting to be put together.  Since this is such a bright vivid card, I didn't use any embellishments, but I did put the image on dimensionals

I also followed the sketch over at Taylored Expressions.  I really liked the sketch this week and will be using it again.

I am not getting much crafting done this week.  We have been really busy since Friday, spending the entire weekend at the fair ~ and we did get to see fireworks again ~ good thing they were on Friday night, because both Saturday and Sunday, we got rained on at the fair!  Then there were doctor appointments, play dates, swimming ~ just lots of running! Right now the girls are at their Ummy and Grandpa's house ~ they went over there last night and will be coming home sometime tomorrow ~ wow, it sure is different with only two kids at home.  I really miss the girls, but I know they are having a lot of fun.  So, it's just me and the boys today ~ off to make some cookies and then head out to go miniature golfing (although going into the pool sounds better to me ~ it is really hot and humid today).  Tomorrow my parents are taking all 4 kids to the movie, which would normally mean guilt free craft time for me, but unfortunately I'll be at the dentist while they are enjoying the movie.  Afterwards we will all be off to dinner and then swimming since we promised the kids we would go back to the pool (where they have their swim lessons) on Friday night.  
Have a wonderful day!
