Everything but the Kitchen Sink

Hi Friends,

Happy Memorial Day weekend. I hope you are all enjoying the long weekend. For those of you who are in the military or have family in the military, thank you for your service. You are in my prayers. My family and I truly appreciates the sacrifices you make in order to preserve the freedoms we cherish here in the United States.

Today is the day for the next Everything but the Kitchen Sink around the house challenge. It was Kelly Marie’s turn to host, and she picked nail polish. What a cool idea! For my card, I painted the pearls in my flowers with nail polish. I essentially used it like Smooch (which I only recently took the plunge and purchased some.) I also painted the lightest flower with some pale aqua nail polish. In real life, it's got a nice shimmer (that I was unable to capture in the photo).

I almost forgot to mention that we have a really cool sponsor, Denami Design is giving a $30 gift certificate to the winner! Have you seen their stuff? This is definitely something I would be able to put to use (I know I say that a lot!).

This is a really cool weekend to be in Indianapolis, with the big race. We’re not going to the race, and we won’t be able to watch it until after the race is over. But it is still pretty cool. We live fairly close to the track and can even hear the cars if we are out on our deck. (This is really just a testimony to how loud the race cars are). Every race, they do a military flyover, and from our house, we can see the military planes fly in their patterns as they prepare to go to the speedway. The years that I have gone to the race, that always gives me goose bumps when they fly over. So seeing them prepare is awesome too.

I look forward to seeing what you do with the challenge. Be sure to check out the Everything but the Kitchen Sink blog to see the other designers creations.

AND, tomorrow begins the debut of the next Lawn Fawn release. You’re not going to want to miss this one, there 3 great new sets coming out that you are going to love.

EDTA: This card also meets the criteria for the Off the Wall Craftiness challenge that is giving away a set of Copics from iCopic!! I'm definitely going to link up for that challenge.

God Bless
