Color Cue {3} Challenge & All Eyes On Masking - I just love you.

Good morning! Long time no post! Things are starting to calm down around here! Taxes are being prepared, Autumn has one more softball game left, the girls weekend went great (but glad to be home), and I'm going to try and finish my niece's Graduation invitations today. We are going out of town from Saturday until Monday to Austin, to go and watch two of our youth boys from our old church play tennis. They are going to state and we couldn't be more proud of them! We remember them starting out playing ping- pong at church, then they started throwing a tennis ball up against the church building, then they got tennis rackets and started hitting the balls up against the building! So they started playing together as doubles as Freshman in High school and now they are Seniors and are going to state together. They both received scholarships to go and play at a military college in Alabama! We told them if they made it to state, that we would go and watch them.....so we are traveling 4 1/2 hrs. to go watch them play! We are only going to watch them play one match, because we have to get back for Chace's game on Monday night at 5:30. So yes, we are letting our kids skip school on Monday....but he will be back to play his baseball game! :) So after this weekend, it should start winding down....maybe! It is the end of school, so that always means craziness! :)

Ok, enough about that...here's a card! I made this card for the Color Cue {3} Challenge over at Wplus9 blog! Dawn picked out some great colors and I also used her All Eyes On Masking Challenge. This was a first for me and I LOVED it! Thanks Dawn for a fun challenge! :) So here is my Mom's Mother's Day card. We won't be here for Mother's Day, so she will be getting this early. Supplies: Cardstock- (PTI) melon berry, summer sunrise, (DCWV) gray-Latte cardstock ; Stamps- (PTI) turning a new leaf, (Technique Tuesday's) Ali Edwards- loving words ; Ink- (ColorBox) chalk- charcoal, (PTI) fresh snow ; Ribbon- (Offray) white satin ; Other- (Sizzix) Beautiful Butterfly Die, (recollections) pearls, white gel pen
Don't forget about the EBTKS challenge, we are using envelopes in projects this time, and that can be lots of fun! Well I'm off to do Graduation invitations!
Have a Blessed day! :)
