Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #18

Well, hello there! :) I apologize to all who read my blog for being absent so long. I've had a lot going on this past month, but it's getting better and I finally felt like stamping yesterday so let's get to it, shall we?!?! I'm here today with a card I made for Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge. I've missed doing a lot of the sketch challenges and thought I would start with Karen's to try and get my mojo going and she totally didn't disappoint.

Since I've been away, I ordered some stamps from Papetrey Ink that arrived and I just had to ink them up! So I started with Scattered Showers by Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite. This set is absolutely adorable with all it's umbrellas and different patterns, and the sentiments are just perfect. I love the one I chose for this card, I mean who wouldn't cheer up after seeing this card?!?! I also used some new My Mind's Eye paper that I picked up from my LSS. I am so lovin' this Penny Lane Collection...it's just too fun! :)

Well that's gonna be it for me today, I've got to run to another doctor's appt. this morning and then it's back to work! :) Take care and have a fabulous day! ~ Jenn
