I'm still here

Sorry I haven't blogged for a while, I have hurt my back and sitting is very painful. I needed a card for a 4 year birthday party on the weekend. So I made a super fast card using the sketch idea from the front cover of the summer mini.

Stamps used are fox and friends and fabulous phrases for the sentiment available from the summer mini.

Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #102

I soooo love this sketch but don't look to close to my panels in the back ground are uneven. I better keep it short, we are off to the library.

I pulled out my colour chart and picked a colour combo that is so yummy. Also I have used a stamp set that I love but has been neglected of late, Vintage vogue.

I would love to know what you think? I will post the card recipe tonight, sorry I need to go.....
