Happy Sunday my friends!! I hope y'all are enjoying your weekend. Nothing special happens on the weekends here, Saturday and Sunday are just like every other day. Tony works weekends and really there isn't a whole lot to do around where I live, especially with a 1,2, and 3 year old. LOL!

Have you seen April's sketch challenge yet? Be sure to check it out and get your entry submitted before April 23 for your chance to win May's monthly kit. :-)

Today I am sharing a card with you that I created using a stamp from Memory Box, I absolutely love it but I think I have only used it once or twice.

I used my Tim Holtz distress inks and a spray bottle to create a watercolor look with the image. I really like the way it turned out. The pattern paper is from Colorbok, they sent me a paper pad a while back for signing up for their newsletter or something. It is beautiful paper.

Super simple card. I stitched along the edges of the card and all I had was white thread. It was a bit bright for the card so I sponged a little distress ink on the thread to tone it down a bit.

Stop by tomorrow for some more inspiration from DT member Courtney using April's monthly kit.

Happy Crafting!!
