SOC: RJ - Sunday's Best Challenges

Good Evening Everyone,

I hope your weekend was great.  I had a busy weekend, but I'm happy that I was able to squeeze a little crafting time in, before heading back to work.  Over at Scraps of Color (SOC -, there's a relay challenge going on in the Robert Jackson Digi Group.  The theme is "Sunday's Best".

Challenge #1 was "Anything Goes".  Challenge #2's twist was to use splattered paint or mist AND some bling!  Now, I can do without the splattered paint or mist, but I just love, love, love some bling!  LOL. Here are my entries for the last two challenges, using RJ's Kim Burrell and Mary Mary images:

Thanks for stopping by.  Please be sure to leave a little blog love, if you're so inclined.

Lady with Hat - Birthday Card

Good Afternoon,

I'm working on getting out here more often, so bare with me.  LOL.  Just wanted to drop off a quick card that I did for my Pastor's mom (really like another mom to me).  She's our church diva (at least that's what I call her - in love).  The sketch that I used is courtesy of Pinterest (I have fallen in love with this layout, too).  The digi is courtesy of Maruva DQ; and it was colored using Copic Markers.  The white patterned paper is from a DCWV stacks (White/Blanc).  The ribbon and bling are from my stash.

Thanks for visiting my crafty slice of Heaven.

Saturday Night Steven

Greetings and Happy (post) 4th of July (Season)!

I tried to post this earlier, but didn't have all of my marker information.  At the time that I completed this project, I hadn't done much crafting.  I DID manage to crank out a quick card for my DT project for Challenge #78.  One of our sponsors for the challenge was Dr. Digis (  Please be sure to visit the site to see all of the wonderful digi stamps that are available.  This is "Saturday Night Steven".  I thought he was such a groovy dude... and with that, I created this card (and sent it to my cousin for his birthday - hope he liked it):

This digi was colored using Copic Markers:
Thanks, as always, for your support and blog love.  It's not easy juggling this great passion with "life", but I'm working towards a balance - no matter how long it takes!  LOL.
