A La Card Monkey Challenge #50

I can't believe that I'm posting tonight! I've got a Techniques class on Monday night, nothing was ready for this, painting is still being done ~ but I needed to create something and pronto ~ so I took little breaks along the way as the inspiration came ~ This is the emboss resist technique and I just love the outcome of my card. I found it really hard to take a picture that actually did the card justice, but wasn't to be!
Another bonus was bestowed upon me as I came across this new weekly challenge blog called A La Card Monkey. The challenge this week was Nature ~ how wonderful ~ 

I know this is shocking ~ out came the sponges and I sponged, sponged & sponged ~ ran upstairs and did more painting, painting, painting...and so this is how my week went ~ here's my creation ~

 I sure hope you enjoyed your time with me ~ if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask
~ I hope you have a wonderful day ~
