Thought for the day -

"Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved." Helen Keller

Good Morning.  I'm really wishing I could stay home today.  Do you ever just get tired of the daily grind?  I don't know what is wrong with me but I only last 4-5 years at a job and then I find myself bored to tears.  I think I must have ADD.  The one saving grace is book club is today.  There is a small group of us at work (13) that meet once a month.  This months book was The Alchemist. It was an interesting little book.  I think I will go back and read again a little more leisurely.  It has alot of good messages in it about finding your real calling.  I think that is my problem- I haven't found my true calling yet. Hmm.

Ok on to todays card.  This was such  a fun little card to make and it covers several challenges.  I will list the challenges at the bottom of the post.  My image today is from Michelle Perkett and is called Queen of Hearts Birthday Girl- and yes it is a birthday card.  I think it will make some little girl happy!

Isn't she the cutest! This is such a fun image.  I used both bazzil and stampin up cardstock and various dp, however, I don't know who it's by.  I used my heart corner punch from Stampin Up on my top corners.  It' hard to see all the layers in this photo but there are 2 cardstock layers and then the dp.  My sentiment is computer generated.

Now on to the challenges.
Friday Sketchers- provided the sketch
Fuzzy & Fancy Fridays- want to be dazzled.  To see the dazzle you will have to click the image to enlarge- I used shimmerz on her crown and wand and ruby red stickles on the bow of her dress.
Copic Creations-this weeks challenge is to color embellishments with copic. I colored the crocheted flower-it was originally a very pale pink and I also colored the pearls- they were white and I colored them begonia pink- #RV14.
Etsy Inspired Challenge- these challenges are always so much fun and feature some pretty awesome etsy shops. This weeks shop is Enchanted Beehive.  They feature some really pretty soaps and pendants. My inspirations came from these 2 items- 1 for the heart and the other for color. I think my pink heart ribbon is a great take on this heart soap. 
There you have it -1 card and 4 challenges. Hope you enjoy your day and may you find time for whatever calls to you!
