one more challenge card...

TGIF!!! are you ready for a LONG weekend??? *woot woot* I am!!!! Not that I am doing anything exciting~just hoping to finish up our yardwork from last weekend, and a few home improvement projects. We will most likley have a small cookout with Ashley, Nate, Josh and Jess on Monday~maybe even swim (Arizonans like the water nice and warm~at least around 78 degrees, LOL!!!).

I decided to do another sketch challenge~because I liked it so much. I have to say that the Clean & Simple sketch challenge is right up my alley. Cannot wait for next weeks to be posted ;)

I have been trying to get used to my new light tent, and yesterday went out to pick up some flood lights (needed some more powerful ones). I was reading Carly's blog on how she takes her pictures and decided to give the cutting board base a try~it really warmed up my photo and reflected the light, but I am having a severe problem with my white balance (even did a custom WB reading), so I am still in the trial and error stage of this new light tent.

Have a terrific holiday weekend~and don't forget to remember those who have/still serve(d) to keep us safe ;)

Supplies used (PTI unless noted): Blooming Button Bits stamp set; White/Dark Chocolate cardstock; Choc Chip ink (SU!); Cuttlebug Embossing Folder~Dots; Designer Series Paper (Retired SU!); EK Success Edge Punch; Satin Dark Chocolate Dotted Ribbon; Dark Chocolate Button; twine; Delightful Dahlia Dies
