Paper Pretties Monday

Good Morning!  I hope you all had a great weekend.  I did.  Saturday I got up early to get my grocery shopping done, then spent the rest of the day hanging out with a friend of mine and his kids.  We had a blast.  I am so happy that his children and mine get along so well.  Then I got up early yesterday morning and managed to get 3 cards done before requiring my coffee!  Now that is an accomplishment.

Guess what!  I have picked up my crochet hook.  With a lot of soreness and stitches in and out and then back in again - I am crocheting an afghan for myself.  I realized that in all the years that I did crochet, I have never made anything for myself.  Since my sister's visit and watching her knit, it make me want to crochet again.  It may take me forever to get this afghan done - but I am having a great time doing it.

Enough about me - there is a great new challenge and release over at Paper Pretties.  We have a couple of new guys that are quite the characters releasing today.  I am featuring Elbram...

My card is created using the great sketch from Unscripted Sketches, using the color combo from My Time Made Easy and I was able to play along with my first DT ever at Corrosive Challenges because I used a really old punch.

Here's Elbram...
