Life's a Puzzle...STAMPlorations Bi-Weekly Sketch Challenge #26 and January Challenge~Stamps and Ink

Whoa...Arms a-flapping and legs a-churning (well...sort of) as I run pell-mell into the STAMPlorations  Bi-Weekly Sketch #26 


and January Challenge: Stamps & Inks  



before the galleries closes. Actually, my 'last minuted-ness' has spilled over into everything I've done this week, from barely getting grades into the 'new' crazy-making data system, to puttering about when I should be making dinner (although my husband's been home late every evening, so 'technically' dinner is 'on time'...like at 9:30!), to nearly burning a batch of cookies (noooo...not the cookies!).

Anyway...here's my card...a first time inking of my STAMPlorations puzzle pieces. It's a really a simple black/white with a pop of red card. The inside will read, "And I'm so glad YOU are one of the piece," and then I'll give it to our librarian, a real sweetie. She's rather artsy herself: water-colour, stained glass, photography. Hopefully, she'll like this...


Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!
Hugs...
