To My Love


 Hi Everybody... wow what a week.. The kids are on Break for teachers convention and that means little time to be crafty lol.. Oh well enjoy the moments while we can. So I had a bit of time today and I have made a card that I am entering in 2 challenges. The first one is a sketch challenge over at Just Us Girls. And the second is a color challenge over at The Play Date Cafe.. and what beautiful colors they are ... :)...  I stumble trying to do shabby chic vintage but I am happy with the way this turned out :).. I got my image from The Graphics Fairy.. there is a huge assortment of free chip art..  Thank you so much for stopping by today :)..Monique
