Looking Good

Wow Friday came around fast this week.  Today our challenge to you at Phindy's Friday Challenge Blog is to create a card using this sketch.  You can flip it as I did or rotate it, but please make sure that the sketch is identifiable in your card.  There is a random winner and the Design Team choose one card each week as Card of the Week.  The creator of that card will then be in the running to be our monthly Guest Designer.  That is lots of reasons to enter a creation but most importantly, if you use a Phindy image you get two entries and with all the fabulous images in her store, including the new Wee Babbies, you really should use a Phindy image.

I am heading to Alberta on Monday and taking my four year-old Granddaughter with me. We are spending three days in Calgary so she can play with some little cousins who are grandchildren of my husband's cousins.  Then we head to Medicine Hat for three days to check on my Mother-in-Law (her Great Grandmother) and celebrate her 89th birthday. I spend time every day with my Granddaughter but I usually don't have to keep her entertained all day so I should be really exhausted by the time I get back.  This will be really special for Nana since she can't come our way anymore so I will hang in. I will have access to a computer part of the time so do leave me a comment - it will make my day.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

Outlawz Challenges - Prismas & Other Mediums - Punch it Up
Paper Romance - Anything Goes
Moving Along with the Times - Fashion
