Good morning everyone! It's Friday!! Has it been a long week for you? I think that the days are just flying by around here. Tomorrow we leave for a tournament in Glenwood Springs. I am hoping to post before we leave and then again when we get back on Sunday but we will see. I am usually running around like a chicken with my head cut off making sure we have everything that we need. I am looking forward to the tournament. I think the boys are ready to play a game. They have had so many practices that they are starting to look bored. So I hope that they "perk" up for the weekend!

Today's card is one that I did for the challenge at Create with Connie and Mary. It was a sketch challenge - my favorite!! I think that I just love this new set, Artistic Etchings. I am always coming back to it. This was my interpretation of the sketch and I like how it all turned out. The new Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder is so much fun, too! I used a sponge and Crumb Cake to highlight the embossing. I also used the new Basic Black narrow taffeta ribbon, and the new 2 3/8" scallop circle punch. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
