Thursday with Lindsay

Hi All,

I hope your Thursday is off to a great start. Mine will be a busy one!

I love just about everyday of the week now. I am embracing being a SAHM and I really love it. I've been schooling the kids just a little. It amazes how quickly their brains become rusty when school lets out for summer. But we've been spending some time on reading, math and spelling. They do it with very little kicking and screaming. LOL

I was going to show off a new digi that happens to be free this week - in order to get it, you have to visit the design team members to find the link. The new digi-stamp is so sweet and I just couldn't do it justice. So I went with my original plan.


I apologize for the picture, taking pictures at late hours of the evening isn't a good idea right now. I am very excited that a new Michaels is opening up and I have 50% off coupons. I am going to build my studio-in-a-box this coming week.

This the daffodils in a jar image and I just love it. I colored the image with Koh-i-noor pencils and OMS and then went back with an eraser to lighten the color more - it really looks like water! I also used a sketch from challenge blog Truly Scrumptious. I used the sentiment from The Greeting Farm's set For Someone.

Please visit Lindsay and the rest of team. Get that freebie and there's not much time left to Lindsay's awesome sale. For every $5 you spend you get one free!! You'll find the links in my sidebar.

Thanks for spending some time with me today.

OH! I almost forgot! I am so excited. I won the blog candy for last week's Color Throwdown Challenge. I'm getting lots of DRS Designs goodies and I can hardly wait for them to come in the mail. Yippeee!!!
