Long Week

It has been a long week already and it is only Tuesday. I feel like it should be Thursday. I did not post Sunday or yesterday. Yesterday I was just ready to go to bed. Sunday I had a pleasant surprise. My daughter and her husband came over and fixed dinner. Pork chops, mashed potatoes and gravy ( made from scratch), seasoned green beans, corn on the cob, rolls and a salad. I am still eating leftovers. We ended up watching a movie and just talking. They stayed until 11 PM, by then I didn't even go back to my computer, went straight to bed.

I did manage to look at some of the entries for this week's Diva challenge. We are to use the new official tangle ING. I will be working on mine later. Joey's Weekly Tangle Challenge is to use the tangle Leaflet in honor of Autumn. The Every Inchie Monday Challenge this week is red. Twinchie Tuesday is Books. I have completed the inchie challenge and Joey's challenge. I was very upset with myself because I didn't send my It's A String Thing challenge entry for last week to Adele. I did look at what others did, and once again was impressed by the artistry and creativity that everyone has. You can look at what others are doing by clicking on the badges on the side of my blog page.

Red Badge of Courage

For my inchie entry I decided to make a red badge of courage.

Falling Leaves     

 For my Joey's Challenge I used Oke as my string and placed Leaflet inside it. I colored part of it and left the other part black and white. I used Unison colored pencils in red, orange, yellow and brown.
