Random Amusing Challenge 25

Happy Monday to all and welcome to the challenge for this week. This week I'd like you to try the watermark technique. You can do this in a couple of ways, use a similar colours of ink and paper or, if you are using card stock, you can try the Versamark Watermark ink. My card for this week uses the first technique. I'm also serving up a helping of Summer Fun amuse-bouche. The sun and the sentiment are both new.... be sure to check your local store or online on May 27th to see the entire Summer Fun release. Love this sentiment as my dad used to sing "You are my sunshine" to me all the time when I was a little girl. As always, please try to use a little A Muse on your card. If you upload to Splitcoast Stampers, use the keyword GRAC25. Thanks to Cheiron, Kerry and Debbie for playing along with the window challenge from last week. I'd also like to give a special shout-out to Cheiron who has just joined our A Muse Instructor team. Congratulations and welcome!

I had a fabulous class on Saturday at Scrappers' Anonymous. Thanks to Pamela, Kory and Sue for a fun couple of hours. My next class there is on June 13th and we'll be doing some fun summer cards.

I'm doing a second class at Crafty Capers this Sunday from 10:30 to 12:30 because the 1 to 3 class is full. Call Victoria and sign up!

Happy Memorial Day to all of my American friends. Hope you don't have to work!
Have a great week! Happy stamping....enjoy the sunshine... Glenda
