A lot accomplished this weekend

Hello Everyone,

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. Well I’m finishing my cards rather late tonight. Today I had a few errands to do & yard work. I felt I had pretty productive day, but it didn’t feel complete unless I felt the same about my crafts.
Speaking of crafts, don’t you think your card making or scrapbook pages are a work of art? I do we take so much time & pride in what are finished products will look like…how could it not be art? I guess that’s my chip on my shoulder when I hear comments about having too much time on my hands. Or it’s not watercolor or oil painting aren’t you just coloring? Who's to say one’s hobby is better than the other? I guess I shouldn’t let it bother me. Most of the time it’s people that don’t have something they enjoying doing besides watch TV, or drinking that make those comments.
I didn’t mean to go on..& on so here are the challenges my cards will be entered in:

Papertake Weekly – Sketch

Paper Play Challenge – #35 “autumn is Comin”

Mo’s Challenge Blog - “Special Fold & Flowers” (My first split card)
