Sassy Cheryl Challenge, My First Tole Painting Project and Fun With The Camera

Helloooooooo glorious sunshine oh how I love you!!!!!! Oh, hello, yes I love you too, thanks so much for stopping by! I have had my hand into so many fun things this past week there just hasn't been enough hours in the day. I love fun things.
First up there is a new challenge on over at the Sassy Cheryl Challenge Blog  Punches and or Dies.
 My card once again uses one of my favorite pre-colored images and my punches are the border and flowers. This card will be a Birthday card for a special girl who is turning 10 next week.

Next up is my newest hobby, Tole Painting, and this little beauty is my first project that I finished last night. It is a wooden box that I will use to hold all my brushes.
And lastly, I have been playing around with a new camera and a new editing program, so yesterday being the 8th snowstorm of the season I decided to enjoy some selfies after the storm passed and it was just, pretty out. That's all for today folks, have a great day!




  1. Hi Cheryl, love your blog header. Those springy colors sure have had to help warm you on that snowy winter day. Darling card, I love it. That tole painting is incredible too. Is that a Sassy snowman? Your snow is pretty, you're looking good, and the photos are awesome, but please keep the snow. LOL Thanks for joining us at Sassy Cheryl's.
