Scraps of Darkness - July and a card

I'm ALIVE....

LOL...nothing wrong here, just busy.  I'm talking about no sleep busy. First, kiddos are out for summer break so to them that consist of constant entertainment, family gathers, vacations, work, school = homework (for me) and my DH took a job over two hours away from the town we live in and stays there during the week. So we only see him during the weekends.  But I am getting the schedule down and finding 5 minutes here and there to craft.

I hope every is enjoying there summer and surviving hot hot hot summer days.

As some of you know I'm a club kit member of Scraps of Darkness and I finally got to sit down with the July Kit - Marrakesh Express Kit.  Each month when the kit arrives, so does a sketch.  This months sketch is by Charlotte Jenkins a.k.a. Suepup.

Here is my take on the sketch - let me know what you think!

Supplies - Scraps of Darkness July kit,
Zva Creative Embellishment, American Craft Thickers,
Imaginisce iRock & gems

Also, a few weeks ago, I won some awesome stash from Darkroom Door. Below is a card I made for my Mother-in-Law's birthday.

One more thing, thank you all for sticking with me through this brief hiatus and a BIG THANK YOU to those of you who checked in on me.  I really appreciate it!  ((HUGS))
