Multiple Challenges!

Next to my desk there is always Lemon heads or Lemon drops - that keeps me away from some kind of junk food...not that that isn't junk food. LOL But it is a low calorie, give my mouth something to do kind of thing.

So you ask, What does Lemon Heads have to do with my project? Well, Courtney has her Tuesday Challenges and this week was to do the Rolling Marble Technique. I could only dig up ONE marble in this house. And that took three days to find. My children have them strategically LOST. LOL

So I decided to use my ONE marble which wasn't even truly a marble, it was plastic! And 3 lemon heads, as long as they didn't dissolve. They didn't! But I did throw those away and use new ones when I used a second color. :)

If you participate in Courtney's Challenge she will have a prize for you! Check out her blog for more details!

Here is another project using the Hugs for Janessa set. For every purchase of this stamp set - $5- goes to Korin's neice who is undergoing treatment for Leukemia. Once Janessa is in remission, any further proceeds will go to another family going through the same treatment.

The sketch is also a challenge from Taylored Expressions! You can view the sketch below.

Here are a few more details:
