Three Challenges

Do you ever have a day when you sit at your craft table and are so happy to have the time but don’t have an idea of what to do? Then when you try something it looks like junk. Well that was my day. I am having trouble with shoulder pain and it is coming from tight muscles in my neck. It was spoiling my crafting mood. Well I gave up and went off to make dinner. After dinner I went back to my craft table and there were the images that I colored earlier in the day. I didn’t think I had the right colors for Colour Q Challenge #40 , but I had two of the inks and I used a water brush to color the images. I also had all the card stock colors. The Jugs #40 sketch was sitting on the desk and BONK! the hammer hit my head. There was the card. The next part was easy and the card went together in 15 min. I love it when it works like that. It is a bit busy but I think it works. What do you think?

I love it when my mojo finally cooperates! She seems to have a timeline of her own so I've learned to let her be and she's good to me. :-) Thanks for playing along with the JUGS and JustRite sketch this week. You've done a lovely job with your project and JUGS appreciates your being here.
