Bloggers Challenge and more

Alright, so this is supposed to be for three different challenges but I am not sure I aced any of them.  I only had 15 minutes start to post!  So this is as good as it gets today.  Sorry.  The blogger's challenge this week is a sketch.  Should be simple but I did it from memory and did the stripes in the wrong direction!  The second challenge LNS66,  is to use colors of our flag, so I technically should not have used black and the blue is not the right shade.  Third is to use an animal on an Easy and Demonstratable card, ED5.  Well it was easy, but I don't think I like it enough to demonstrate it, lol.  So there you go, as I said above I did not ace any of them.  Oh well, I bet the rest of the girls on the Blogger's challenge team aced it.  You can check out their cards by clicking on the logo on my sidebar.  Off to paint my bathroom, hopfully, if I can get the stinkin wallpaper off.


Stamps: Animal Stories, It's Your Birthday, Curvy Verses
Paper: Ballet Blue, Real Red, Whisper White
Ink: Ballet Blue, Real Red, Basic Black
Other: marker

Thanks for stopping by,

The torn paper waves are wonderful! Love this color combo, too! Good luck on the wallpaper...hope it was vinyl based....that's easy to remove. Paper wallpaper, bad news!
