Hello...and an incredible RAK...

Hello!

I can't tell you how happy I am that it is a short work week...only 3 days...woot woot!!!

I was able to get a ton of crafty stuff done over the weekend..I try to do most of my week's cards over the weekend...it makes for a less stressful work week.

Today I'm sharing the latest RSCC#19:

The lavender was throwing me...I'm not a lavender kind of gal BUT I'm always up for a challenge:

The chippie tree is Maya Road...I colored the trunk with a copic and covered the other part with SU designer paper...The apples are Fancy Pants buttons {good for the Cards Magazine blog challenge to include at least 5 buttons!}. The cloud paper & hello rub on are American Crafts...Do you see my lavender? Yup, it is the Marvy butterfly!

The hello banner is actually kind of wavy...kwim? I anchored it down by the "h" and by the 2nd "l"...

I wanted to share another RAK that I received last week. I decided to hijack Yvonne's blog...her pic is gorgeous...check out the lovely piece of art she made me....I know, pretty incredible...it is quite the keepsake...please leave her some blog love...it arrived intact all the way from Singapore!!!!
