Ok so I am finally able to post. My mom is doing well and her recovery should go great.

This is a challenge from SCS, CC195 today. The challenge was to use Basic Black, Very Vanilla and Sahara Sand. My conversion to CTMH colors are Black, Colonial White and Bamboo.

Mono (or limited colors) can be very difficult for me. I LOVE them though. I am drawn to them but when it's time for me to do one, it's a STRUGGLE. So any way this is what I came up with. I hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.

Stamps: SU Take Three
Paper: CTMH Bamboo, Black and Colonial White
Inks: Black,
Accessories: SU Tag punch, CTMH Waxy Flax (all three colors)

All the post below is of art work I've been creating for some time now. I live in an area that I can not get a Broadband internet connection. It's has been very difficult for me to upload any pictures. Everytime I do it would not take!! I didn't know exactly what was going on. But some how some way TONIGHT I changed the file size and played around with some other settings and WAAAALAAAA!! It came up in about 10 seconds. So I have posted everything that I took a picture of. There are some things that I NOW regret not taking a picture of. So keep checking in to see what's new.
