Happy Sunday

Hope you are having a great day so far.  I'm still in my housecoat drinking my coffee so no complaints!  Was able to get some crafty time yesterday so was able to play along with some challenges.  This is for CAS-ual Friday 45 - pastels and black as well as the Hero Arts March Contest (this works for both the flowers and velveteen stamping).  

This is the first time I've tried this velveteen technique.  It's pretty cool.  I'm not usually into pastels but this combination seems to work well.

It's sunny here so I should really tend to my severely neglected garden today.  I'd rather just stay inside to read and craft.  Enjoy the sunshine from the inside (cause it's really not that warm out!).  We'll see...

Hope you have a great day.  Thanks for stopping by.
