Sparkle Creations Challenge #116: Center Step or Side Step card

Hello everyone!  Hope everyone had a wonderful, relaxing weekend! 

We have a new challenge for you at Sparkle Creations!  We are onto challenge #116! For this challenge, we would love to see a side step or center step card!  Our challenges run two weeks so you have plenty of time to work on your card/project!  :)

I have been extremely busy with life pretty much so I am so glad I have a few center step card templates made previously!  

I used Tea Set Rin on this card.  This image was colored a long while back as well!  I love to keep a stash of colored images!  They come in so handy!

Flower embellishment is by Prima. Papers are by My Mind's Eyes, Life of the Party.                                                                                                                                                                                         

I apology for the lack of blog posts these days.  I was doing pretty good with keeping this blog up to date.  What happened since then?  Well, a lot happened!  My mom has two more granddaughters!  She now has a total of 14 grandchildren!  Which means, we pretty much have a birthday party to go to each month!  lol  Yup, this last weekend, it was my twin's daughter's 6th birthday.

There are quite some changes with hubby's job as well.  he needs to travel often these days.  Which means, I have the three kiddies to myself.  I must admit, it's quite challenging at times with three little ones!

Who loves Autumn?  Well, not me!  I love the colors but definitely not the weather!  It's getting so cold in the morning and in the evening!  Well, not that cold yet but I just don't like how it's cold in the morning and then gets hot during the day!  Other than the weather, I do love Fall.  I love to see golden yellow/orange leaves falling.  It's a sight to see little kids running about and kicking the pretty leaves up high!

Speaking of orange, this is the color I am playing with nowadays.  Plum was the color a while back but orange is slowing taking over!  As a matter of fact, I am working on a crochet balero (shrug) in burnt orange!  I am almost done with it.  I will share pictures of the finished product soon!  It's my first adult clothing piece!  I crochet little vests and cardigans for my kids but never clothing for myself or any adult.  I wanted to challenge myself. It's coming out very nicely I must admit.

Thanks so much for reading!

Your mom is very happy, it is blessing to have grandkids! :)
I like fall too, but I don't like to be cold also.
Can't wait to see your finished project. It will be gorgeous!
Your card is very pretty, Kim!

Congrats on all of the fun!!
Love your step card, it's colored beautifully. I have to agree with keeping colored images on hand...they are perfect to use when time is short.
