SMC Challenge ~ Thanks or Love Themed

Good morning! Today is challenge day at Sew Many Challenges. Today we are celebrating Grandparent's Day. This year Grandparent's Day falls on Sunday, September 12th. Every year in my daughter's school they have a day for grandparents. This is where the grandparents visit their grandchilds classroom for a couple hours and then eat lunch with them. The kids have a blast preparing for their grandparents to spend the morning with them. And the grandparents always have so much fun seeing what the kids have prepared for them. My mom has gone every year since my son was in Kindergarten (he's now in 7th grade).

Our challenge this week is to create THANKS or LOVE THEMED cards. The image I used on my card is Owen With Roses. You can purchase this image at Sew Many Cards.


We are being sponsored this week by:

Kayla has kindly donated 4 digital stamps of the winner's choice from Purple Panda Designs. Kayla was very sweet and gave the design team an image to work with. This image is called Layla.


Now it's your turn. I can't wait to see what you all come up with for this challenge. Don't forget to check out the DT blogs and be sure to check out Kayla's blog too.

I am entering the Owen card into the following challenges:

Дамы, подскажите, у кого была такая проблема. Ищу средства - народные, аптечные, люкс - для выравнивания цвета лица. Кожа умеренно жирная, ближе к нормальной, быстро загорает, структура довольно неровная, краснеет от всякого воздействия. Хотелось бы выровнять цвет и приблизится к фарфоровому личику. Спасибо за советы.
