Color Challenge Tuesday

Well, it is only Tuesday, and it has been a busy week.  My daughter, SIL and grandson got home from their visit to Italy and Switzerland.  They had a ball.  Her husband, Andy, and his Dad taught tennis for a week in at an Italian resort on the coast for a week and then they headed to Basel, Switzerland to stay a week with Andy's Dad.  Here is a picture of Elizabeth and Dean with the gorgeous Swiss mountains behind them.

Andy, Fred and Dean.
Of course I am glad to have them home!

Color Challenge at The Outlawz

Guylou chose our lovely color palette this week and her challenge was to make a project relating to FOOD!  (One of my favorite subjects!)

I paper pieced an apron, added a Jolee's lemon, a fabric rose, stick pin that I made, and a Nestibilities die cut.  I used Cat's Eye Chalk on the outside of the card and finished off the inside with another die cut.  Of course, what card is not complete without a little bling and rick rack!  Hope ya'll can find some time to come over and play as this is a FUN challenge!  How many times to you get to "play" with food??

I also did a fundrasing ride with the "Pink Ladies" motorcycle group for breast cancer.  Over $8,000.00 dollars was raised and it will stay locally.  I am on the right with two of my fellow biker chicks!

This is a cause near and dear to me as my sister is a six year survivor and a friend in the fight now.
