Many Things Were Accomplished Today

I had some household chores I could have/should have been working on today, but since the kids are out of school in 3 days, I thought I would take advantage of the time and get some Etsy business taken care of.

First, I will be opening a gift section this week. I'll post items on here as well, but come on over in a few days and check it out.

I love Mary Jo's Monday Sketch Challenges, and made sure I slipped that in today too. Check out the details of the challenge on her blog.

This was a great sketch (again!). All the layered circles are so fun, and the 3 smaller circles just pull the whole card together. I wanted a larger image in the main circle, and since I love to watercolor, I kept that in mind while I was searching through my stamps. I pulled this long lost set out--another one that I'm glad I saved.

The sentiment in the smaller circle says, "Joy is not in things, it is in us." What a great saying! This card could be used for so many different occasions too.

Thanks again MJ for another great "spring board."
