a gift for you...

This has been one crazy day!  Today was craft fair day.  I didn't sell a ton but it was so worth going.  Jen and I had a great time together.  I had fun setting up my table and guess what?  No picture!  I am a habitual instagramer too.  What's up with that?  As I was pulling the table cloth off, I said to Jen...Agh! No picture!  OH well!  With this week's craziness, I am also late for Retro Sketches.  So here is today's card...


This gray thing is not stopping here in my craft room.  I am looking for a new favorite gray since I ran out of my last stack.  This background paper is from CTMH and its pretty fun!

Here is this week's sketch...

The girls at Retro have lots of fun to share....but I am sure you have already seen it since I'm behind here!  :)  Hope you had a great Saturday!  


PS-I know just 2 posts ago I said I would get better with Supply lists....well, yesterday's post was a fail. Here are the deets for the watermelon card that I have received so many emails about....
