It's Sunday, how has your week been? Mine has flown by, but it was jam packed with some crazy awesome stuff. A couple of highlights included being able to pay a visit to the house of my favorite local artist, Brandon Maldonado. My sister purchased a painting from him, so we popped in to pick it up. He was incredibly gracious and gave us a tour of his art collection and shared his works in progress with us. Who has two thumbs and is the luckiest person in the world? This girl! Later in the week my sis and I attended the Margarita and a Movie event at the Albuquerque Natural History Museum. The movie for the evening was Breakfast at Tiffany's. So magical. Never were there two more beautiful yet flawed characters to dazzle the big screen. Before the movie, we were welcomed with a lovely libation; our choice of beer, wine or margarita (of course). Then our appetites were sated with tasty hors d'oeuvres. A fabulous evening indeed! Finally, Saturday night, hubby and I celebrated Valentine's Day with a trip to our favorite sushi/teppan grill restaurant, I Love Sushi. The food is always excellent, and the owner is charming and friendly during every visit. It can kick Japanese Kitchen's tookus with both culinary hands tied behind it's back. Well, that was my week. I hope your's was equally fabulous!
On to the real reason for this post. There is a new challenge happening at Kenny K's Krafty Girlz Challenge blog today and we are asking you to create a card featuring circles. Who knew circles could be so much fun! I used Soho on my card and combined her with a turquoise, red and kraft color theme. I am using these colors a lot lately, but I am loving them. Soho reminds me of either a superhero or a race car driver, maybe a little bit of each. I made the circle panel behind Soho using the same embossed resist technique I described in my La Isla Bonita post a couple of days ago. It seemed perfectly suited for this week's challenge.
We have a couple of crazy cool prizes for you this week including your choice of a set of 5 Copic Caio Markers from Cult Pens, and your choice of 5 digi images from Kenny K. I know... anyone would love to win these, how about you?
