Good Morning,
Welcome to May..  It is a rainy day here, perfect for being indoors and checking out the new challenges going up for the new month!!  I hope you find some inspiration for your creative time in these challenges I am sharing today.

The May Sketch for CARDABILITIES #122 is a fabulous one! And it is being sponsored by CRAFTY CITY which is supplying a package of scrap supplies to the random winner this month..

The sketch..
You can go as detailed or as simply as you wish.. the Design Team have some amazing examples for inspiration  HERE!!!

And my card..

 The circles were created by dipping a lid into black gesso..  easy and effective!!

The May Challenge for WHITE WITH ONE is a color I really loved creating with.. I hope you do too!!

raspberry wine Raspberry Wine!! How pretty is that!!!?

And we are so thankful to the WONDERFUL SPONSORS who donate prizes each month.. 

And my layout..

some closer views..

I made the flowers, used lots of dies and was inspired by the photo of my DD in the rain with an umbrella!!

And one more!!

The May Challenge for SKETCHY BOARDS is one  I really enjoyed a lot.. it is fresh and really feels like spring.. even though for me it is the middle of Autumn here!!!

So what inspires you from the sketch and picture!!??

This is what I created..

The big white flowers are hand made, some stamping and leaves made from dies..
