Sunday Bliss

Good Afternoon!  I am really enjoying my Sunday.  It's quiet, the apartment is clean and smelling fresh and my kids are just doing their own thing.  We'll have a movie later on.

So I've been really good about getting some design work done ahead of schedule, which left my day to just play.  I decided to play along with a few challenges.  Ones I don't get to play along with very often, so little time, so many fun challenges....  The sketch is from Just Us Girls, Anything Goes for Charisma Cardz and paper piecing at Raise the Bar.

I really don't like taking pictures during the day.  I prefer at night when I have more control over the lighting - I do apologize if this card looks mediocre on your monitor.  It really is cute.

Thanks for visting me today.  Now I am off to visit blogs!  Happy holiday weekend to you.
