Magical Monday - Inspirational

This week over at the Paper Cupcake's Challenge Blog the challenge is brought to us by Patti Painter. She wants us to be inspired by a beautiful picture in any way and then create! You can find the picture here.

I used the image "Cute Valentine" by Paper Cupcakes and colored it with my Bic Mark-its. My papers were scraps. This is a 5x5 card. Truly this was a quick simple card, but I think it turned out cute. I thought I printed my image on white card stock and I just thought my lighting was bad when I colored it and then when I went to go make my card I realized I actually printed my image on a vanilla piece of card stock! Oh well, it actually worked and I like the end result so sometimes our mess ups actually work. I will probably repeat it as well.

Well, our weekend flew by, as usually. I had my family over for Father's Day for a cookout. It was raining when we went to church and it didn't look like much hope for the sun to shine, but after my dear husband finished cooking all the chicken wings on the grill (in the rain), it actually cleared up and became quite nice outside! A little humid, but I truly had a wonderful time and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves as well. The only thing was I sat my camera out to take some pictures and I didn't take a one! Plus, I failed to take a picture of the card I made my dad for Father's Day! ((big sigh))

Well, it's going on midnight once again and so I need to head for bed, because I have a busy week, plus I am tired!! So, make it a good week.
