PPA176- A Sketch Challenge

Another day, another challenge. I am trying to do as many as possible but life just gets in the way. I am now working 3 days a week part time so getting adjusted to that takes time away from my crafting. How dare work take time away from my craft time! Just seems like a sin!

I have a hard time balancing my time. Especially balancing my time to get everything done but still have time to do things for myself. I mean, I know that I need to do laundry but making a card for a challenge sounds so much better. I know I need to clean toilets but finishing a scrapbook is what I really want to do. Sound familiar to anyone out there??

In my defense, today I did start a load of laundry, loaded the dishwasher and fed my family breakfast and lunch. I also had time to make a card and watch football at the same time. It's been a good day so far!

I made a card for Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge. The sketch was different but fun to make.

The colors that I chose isn't two that I would normally put together but I saw another challenge and they were using the colors. They are Midnight Muse, Pool Party and Whisper White. Just something about those colors together that crisp and clean. 

I'm watching my Gators get beat by Missouri as I'm typing this blog post. It makes me sad that they are not doing well this year. I guess we can win them every year so we will let someone else win it this year. I'm hoping that working on challenges for the rest of the day will keep my spirits high.

Thanks for taking the time to look today.

Happy Stampin!
