Make the Challenges Lovely



I'm so glad summer is here...but the challenges have not stopped.


I don't mean card challenges, either. Those are cool. ;)


No, I mean the challenges of each and every new day.




I LOVE that God gave me the desire to craft and create...it keeps my busy mind occupied.


There are things I can't change, things I can't control...but I CAN try to make beautiful cards.


IN THAT SENSE...challenges motivate me to USE those challenges of life to create lovely wherever and whenever I can.


I'm sure many of you craft for the same reason...it's cheaper than therapy! Ha! ;)


For this pinkish card...


I started with Inspired By #117

I used the colors from
