Our Daily Bread designs has gone to having monthly challenges now, gives you more time to get them done, this months challenge is a sketch.  You can find out all the details HERE on their blog .

I was in need of another sympathy card, a friend at church lost her older sister.

I like how this stamp set works perfectly with the Spellbinders die set and I added just a pop of color with the sentiment. Their new mini sentiments stamps work great with the image set.

We had another day out yesterday, this time looking for the bald eagles that come to this area around this time of year, I guess because it is so much warmer they are harder to find, but my hubby and I spotted one across the river, I haven't checked yet to see if the pictures turned out but if they did I will share some soon.

Hope you all enjoy a fun and very creative weekend,

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and letting me know you did, so good to hear from you,

Very nice arrangement. I think I may kindof like the monthly challenges now too, but I need to keep a list of them to mark off because I forget about them sometimes.

This sketch was made for that image! Love the CAS look w/black & white! I would love to see an eagle in the wild! A friend takes awesome photos of them every day. Hope your pictures turned out. (FYI, I made an error on my blog. Bazzill is not going out of business or changing directions in their company. It is Basic Grey! Ok, so I turned older last Friday! Chalk it up to a Senior Moment!)

This makes a beautiful sympathy card, Connie. Love that silhouette image. I always like when challenges go longer than a week. Sounds like a good day out. We were out yesterday, too, tromping around with the dogs.
