Summertime: Share Joy Challenge

My 17 year old stepson has been staying with us all summer.  It's an annual thing, so nothing really new.  But, this year did prove to be quite a bit more fun than the last several.  Case has grown into a nice young man.  We don't have much in common, so bonding has always been tough, but with the Pokemon Go craze the last few weeks has given us something to do together.  As silly as the game is, we've had a lot of fun.  

A rare photo fo Case and I, here we are at the San Antonio Riverwalk hunting for Pokemon.  

After about 2 weeks of us playing, his dad got involved...

This summer, I also discovered a new papercrafting company and I just love their products.  Check out Taylored Expressions here.  I'll be adding some of their cutest stamps to my wishlist for sure!  

They also have a weekly card challenge called the Share Joy Challenge that I'm excited to participate in.  Not only do the folks at TE's Shared Joy Challenge ask for particpants to share their card designs, they also ask us to share who we are sending our cards to. What great encouragement to spread happiness! 

Here is this week's Share Joy Sketch and Inspiration Challenge. 

I chose to enter the sketch challenge.  Since I don't have any TE products yet, I used the Time to Blossom stamp from Verve Stamps and plaid paper from My Favorite Things.  

 I've been trying to get into the watercolor trend, but the idea of the free-flowing colors really throws me for a loop.  But, here's a good try...
