Challenge overload and a memory filled day

Anyone ever feel like they are just on challenge overload? There are so many awesome challenges out there that I always want to try but then I try to pick which one to do and my head swims so I don't do any. It is good that there are so many though, makes it more fun.

While deciding what to do for today's post I thought about the date, September 18. That day is so special to me. It was my Great Grandmother Vada's birthday. I always remember the year I turned 8 she turned 80. So fun. She was such an important part of my life and I miss her so much. I wish my kids had a chance to know her. Well, anyway, happy birthday Grandma, hope the heavens are celebrating you today.

I decided to look through my pile of images that are already colored to create with today. I have quite the pile of them so I'd like to get to using them!!

I chose this cute Sarah Kay Country Girl as she reminded me of my grandma with the chickens. Grandma always had chickens and rabbits.



supplies:
card size: 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
stamps: Country Girl,
paper: some from my stash, SU cardstock,
ink: Memento Tuxedo Black,
others: prismacolors, OMS, copic glitter pens, Curved rectangles nestabilities, corner punch, CM fine tip markers, Prima Daisy Crazy Destiny, cappuccino bella baubles,

Good morning, Danni! I know what you mean about all the different challenges out there. I have my fav's, but I also like to sometimes get out of my box and try something different.

Your card is so cute! I love how it reminds you of your grandma. I have many fond memories of mine as well and miss her terribly. It's nice to think of the fun things we did together though and there were TONS!

Have a great day! I have to get working on my project for your challenge this week!
