How was your weekend, Bleeps? Mine was good. I relaxed and got a chance to go to the party I mentioned earlier. I was finishing up my card for 2 Sketches 4 You challenge and realized the party had started! So, I had to rush to find an outfit (my original outfit idea was scratched because of the rain and cool air). However, I am glad I got a chance to finish my 2S4Y card because it was selected as the Card of the Week! I'm so excited about that because you know how I feel about sketches; they are a serious challenge for me! This time; however, I did not feel constrained, so perhaps that is why it turned out well in the end.

I'm back today with a card inspired by the Loonie Stampers Challenge. To find more about the challenges, visit Charlene's blog and you can find links to the other Loonies too. I thought I'd pass that along in case you wanted to participate too! This week's challenge is to create a one-layer card. Easy Breezy for me! I like to make no-fuss, one-layer cards because they can be completed in 10 minutes and with a few products. Since fall has started, I made an autumn themed card that focuses on happiness.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your Monday and make the best out of it!
