Hello there, friends! Sorry it's been quiet around here this week, but I'm finally back with a card for a couple of challenges. The first is the color challenge at CR84FN which includes some lovely shades of blue plus a neutral. The second started out with the 100th sketch at Just Us Girls, but after I'd finished it I realized I left out the horizontal strips behind the oval. Oops! Still, I thought I'd link it up to help them celebrate their milestone!
The idea for this card came because I wanted to send a card to my sweet friend Andrea, who is currently on her way across the country to her new home on Prince Edward Island. She is a member of the design teams for CR84FN and JUGS, so I thought it would be fun to combine these two challenges to make a card for her.
The house and sentiment come from PTI's Boards & Beams colored with Copics. I inked the oval Nestie with tea dye, then adhered it with foam dots to a Hawaiian Shores panel debossed with the Woodgrain impression plate. A brown ribbon and buttons add the finishing touches.

I hope my American and Canadian friends are enjoying a long Labor Day weekend! I'm currently visiting my FIL in Maine and hope to have a chance to go sailing tomorrow morning before we head home.
Thanks for stopping by tonight! Have a good one!
