Doing a little catching up over the next day or so.  Life gets a bit crazy around this time of year - end of current boys' soccer season - games and tournaments, end of school year for all 4 kids (oldest moving on to middle school in the fall), tryouts for boys' fall soccer, 5th grade graduation festivities, multiple field trips, 2 cousin's graduations from high school, etc.  You get the idea... 

Anyhoo, just want to let you know about our challenge going on at SEW MANY CARDS CHALLENGE BLOG and hope you will come play along with us.  Our theme this week is LACE and FLOWERS.  I am using Duncan with Heart letter as my image, one of the collection of NEW MAY IMAGES at SEW MANY CARDS SHOP.   Our challenge is open until 10pm EST on Thursday, May 26, so get your projects made and link them at SEW MANY CARDS CHALLENGE BLOG for the chance to win images from SEW MANY CARDS!!:)

I colored image with Copics, added JudiKins glaze to hearts, and added Distress Ink for background.  Cuts are all Nesties, some Grand Nesties.  Bling and resin flowers plus DP are Prima.  Sentiment is clear stamp from my stash, flowers are K and Co., ribbon from Hobby Lobby.
