None of us is born thinking we are ordinary. Feeling special is an essential part of the human birthright. If you don’t think you are special, you won’t seek to contribute your gift to the world. -Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

Hurry up & Relax ...

Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under the trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the blue sky, is by no means waste of time. ~John Lubbock, "Recreation," The Use of Life, 1894

Good morning!

Today we start a new Anything Goes Challenge at Through the Craft Room Door and our sponsor this week is Patties Creations with a prize of 3 images

Bubbles ...

Look within. Within is the fountain of good, and it will ever bubble up, if thou wilt ever dig. ~ Marcus Aurelius

I’m here to share my card for the new color challenge which started today at The Outlawz Challenges and our sponsor this month with a prize of two images from their store is DigiStamps4Joy.

This week Ursula is challenging us to use turquoise and two other colors from her sweet inspiration picture. The added twist is using a circle.

I decided to add gray and white as my two other colors and bubbles will cover my circles so I am using one of my favorite DS4J images “Bo Bubbles”.
