Random Amusing Challenge #68 and some Summer Fun

Happy long weekend to all my Canadian friends. Since I'm not working it's not a huge deal for me but I'm happy to have three relaxing, commitment-free days with my hubby.

Today's challenge is to do something free-hand on your card. Draw something, write your sentiment, draw a squiggle, whatever tickles your fancy. Since I can't draw and my writing isn't that beautiful, I did a doodle line on my card. If you upload to an online gallery, use the keyword GRAC68. Please leave a comment here if you play along and link back to this post in your post, thanks. Thanks to Deb, Victoria, snw and Kerry for playing along last week.

Today also marks the start of Summer Fun at A Muse. A Muse is releasing some new 8.5 x 11 papers including Lime, Papaya and the all new Cobalt Blue. Stay tuned to the Muse's blogs and A Muse News for the next few days for some more summer fun inspiration.

Tonight's domesticity including making one of my hubby's favourites, Jambalaya. I changed the recipe a bit by removing the cloves, adding some shrimp and using hot Italian sausage.

Hope you have a great week and am able to play along with my challenge. Thanks for stopping by, I always appreciate it.

  3. Don't think my comment worked the first time. Since I can't draw and do dots count as doodling. Anyway here is my card http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/1711066?&cat=500&ppuser=256397
