  5. I haven't had a lot of time to play along in challenges lately because our oldest daughter is getting married in August and I've just been SO busy; but I always LOVE stopping by to see the fabulous cards by the DT and all the great entries. I still appreciate you all "Sharing Joy" with us even when I can't play along.
    Blessings to all,
    Karen Letchworth

  7. i'm sending this card to my daughter, who lives a couple of hours away; i have plenty of time to watch the clouds during an otherwise long boring ride. :)

  8. Love the colors with this challenge. I have a friend in art school and thought it would be fun to send her this Andy Warhol style card. I think the chickens will make her laugh. (card #8)
