I sat down to make a card and realized it was the day for the sketch challenge on SCS (SC283). I haven't participated in the sketch challenge in about a year. It makes it easy to know what you are going to do when that part is done for you. As I inked up the image to stamp it, I realized I have never used this image that I didn't color the leaves and stem and the flower in a different color. I wonder why I feel it has to be colored.

Do you remember Aesop’s fable about the Grasshopper and the Ant? The industrious little ant worked all day, every day preparing for the days ahead of him. He was always prepared and never stressed. The grasshopper was a procrastinator. His motto was ‘Why work today when I can wait until I need it tomorrow.’ I try to be that ant and plan ahead, however, deep down inside, I'm a grasshopper. I keep revealing that about myself as I work on projects, have laundry to do or maybe even a lesson that needs to be prepared and I'm off having fun, procrastinating and putting off until I have to do it.
Today I am a grasshopper.
