Fauxbonichi journal pages and a gifted card :)

More pages in my Fauxbonichi journal :)
This one isn't as artsy as some of my others, but I have a sign on my Craft table that says "Not every page needs to be a Masterpiece"
I have to repeat this to myself over and over, lol.

I don't always follow the challenges that are posted on the Fauxbonichi Journalers group that I follow on Facebook, but this day I combined two of them.
We had to draw an umbrella.
Yup, that what that is, teehee….I added some stamped leaves falling as I thought it would look more fallish.
The other challenge was to write in faux calligraphy.
I actually do calligraphy, and found this challenge so much fun.

For the second page I did a journal challenge.
The question "Would you rather carry a 1kg of feathers or a 1kg of stones.
I noticed most of the journalers picked stones as the bag would be smaller…which makes sense.
But I had a different outlook on the question.
Plus I was able to stamp my TH wings on my page :)

I spent most of my day with my middle daughter Heather as I had a lot of errands and she only worked in the morning, so came along :)
I love spending the day with my girls….I even got to spend the evening with all of them tonight.
Wayne and I are heading across the border for the weekend, so Ashley wanted to come by to see us before we left :)

I received this adorable, sweet and beautifully coloured card from my friend Phillane.
If you are a YouTube watcher, you know her as Pea from Whimsical Endevors.
Isn't this the cutest card and image?!

She also wrote me a very sweet touching letter inside.
Look at these die cuts…aren't these leave so pretty!!!

I am off to go and pack for our trip :)

Hope you all had a very Creative Day today :)
