Delightful Challenge

Good Morning!  Can you believe it's already Thursday?  I can't - the week just flew by!  I got to teach training classes and the beginning part of the week and that went well.  I was nervous at first, but I got comfortable with it and then it went really well.

Anyway, let's talk about the challenge this week at Delightful Challenges.  This week we're CELEBRATING.  Yep, create a card for any celebration.

This is cause to celebrate right?  At least the new driver is celebrating.  The parents aren't.  I speak from personal experience.  My oldest son hasn't tested yet for his license but he's been pushing for it.  I'm hoping to hold out just a little longer, but I don't think I'm going to win.

And speaking of my oldest son, he says I never do anything on the inside of my cards, so here's a shot to prove that I do every now then.

I created this card with that was inspired by a sketch at Sketches by Carly.  She's such a talented young lady!

We'll see you over at Digital Delights by Louby Loo. Enjoy your Thursday!

Love your card Melissa - good luck with your son, you won't win! Both mine were driving at 17! xx

This is just adorable! Wonderful coloring too! Yes, you will not win with the driver's license. Just take the plunge and give my baby his license.

OK, first, LOL! I just got my learner's permit last August, at 34. My mom got her license a few years ago, at 53. We're late bloomers for that. My DH is soooo not in favour of me driving. Maybe he thinks he's my dad?
Love this cute little guy! and I want a car that colour.

How cute! Love the bg paper and the coloring on the image. The color in the car is awesome!!! Cute watermark, too!

Great card, love the image, and the bg paper too! Your coloring is superb! Thanks for joining us at We love to see your creations! Hugs, Kelly :)

P.S. - My guys always look inside my cards too when I share them before mailing ... we put so much time into making the front perfect, sometimes its hard to decide what to put on the inside. GREAT job though. I love the added touch. :)
