A Slice of Life Challenge

Edited: PLEASE visit Mercy's blog for a very special request.  PLEASE.  Thank you.

There is a brand new weekly challenge, A La Card Monkeys, started by the very talented and friendly Shirley Pumpkin and her friend, Terry Su.  This week is the inaugural week of the weekly challenges.  To celebrate, they will be giving away A Big Bundle of Stampin' Goodies.  Well, who could resist, right?  I haven't sat down in earnest in a couple of weeks to make cards.  Somehow being super tired fosters no creativity at all.  I am hoping that doing this challenge and maybe some others during the week will help get my mojo back.

Anyways, mojo or no, I felt I just needed to do this particular new challenge. The theme is "Nature: Create a project using plants, animals, and landscapes found in nature. It's that simple!"  Easy enough.  I debated what I should use.  I settled on this vase of flowers from A Slice of Life.  It's a Level 1 FREE Hostess Set in the Occasions Catalog.  You can get this with a qualifying workshop or customer order of $150+.  But this set won't be available forever.  It'll only be available until end of April.  So act quick!  I also used the Springtime Vintage DSP, which is also in the Occasions Catalog.  This pack is so full of sweet prints.  I will be sad to see it go at the end of the month.  Maybe I should stock it up!
Oops, totally forgot to add: Sketch from splitcoaststampers.com's Sketch Challenge (SC326).

Ink: Always Artichoke
