CPS Enjoy the moment

I need to apologize for not being around much this week. I have been at church the last two nights and then working a lot, so there hasn't been a lot of free time. I will get back to it next week!

This is the sketch for this weeks Card positioning systems sketch 110. I combined this with Jenn's 300,000 color combo, which is Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, Kiwi Kiss and Whisper White or Very Vanilla (if you do not own Kiwi Kiss you may use Old Olive). I had a hard time with these colors for some reason and I love this combo, so who knows.

Here is my take

I had a hard time with this sketch for some reason. This is my 3rd try and I am still not "in love" with it. I am making some cards for a friend of mine who is going through a rough patch. Don't we all need to take some time to remember that even though we might not be in the best place, it is still our choice to enjoy today. That even admist our struggles, we are still blessed and fortunate. I'd love to know what you think about this card, I am still struggling with it. It still needs something to me. Oh well.
I used watercolor crayons and then spritzed and applied to SU's watercolor paper. I did like the effect it had on the card. I think it needs a color spritzer tool to add some dimension. I will have to add that to my list of "needs" LOL!!!

It's a good life!
