One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

JUG'S + 30 Day Coloring Challenge

I am entering this card in the 30 Day Coloring Challenge and in the Just Us Girls Challenge.
The word for the JUG's Challenge is "SUMMER' and nothing shouts out summer more than swinging on a tire swing (or any swing for that matter!).
This is a digital stamp from Tiddly Inks called Wryn Swinging By

I colored with copics and had to add all the 'tree bark' myself with the pens along with all the grass blades!!

Well that is it from me...I will give you two more pictures from my trip to Indianapolis to watch my granddaughter play in the USA National volleyball tournament.
Her team struggled with too many errors early in the games, but they redeemed themselves with a first place win in the Bronze division.  They came in 17th.
Ellie plays the Libero position, so she is in the blue jersey.  My husband assists with the team and is far left.

And one last picture...I loved the Chicago Airport, it was so patriotic...
I had my family stand still and I quickly got a shot of them before the crowds came from deplaning:
American Flags up and down the concourse!

It felt good to be back in my studio...took awhile to get my mojo going though!!

Heart Hugs, friends!


  1. Amazing coloring my friend. Adorable picture.

  2. That is the sweetest image and you did a great coloring job. Her hair is so pretty and all the shading really makes her stand out. Your daughter looks so young and the girls have your eyes. I talked to my son last night and he is thrilled I'll be living with them a while. So pack up and come back!
