Hi Everyone. As it was drizzling, grey, wet and cold again today, I did manage to spend a little time in my craft room and played along with a couple of challenges. Here's the fabulous color theme from Color Throwdown And here is the theme challenge from Simply Less is Moore: It took me a couple of minutes to work out what I was going to do for geometric - as I really don't have many geometric stamps.

I saw this photo at Inspirational and was really inspired by the colors (the greys, brown and white feathers. What an amazing photograph that Marina took. However, I needed a sketch - and, once again, the sketch at casethissketch was perfect. and here's the sketch: It took me a little while to work out how I was going to accommodate the multiple elements of the photo challenge and then realized that I had an old Papertrey Ink set called Feather Finery -...
