Messy Baby

I'm back from my vacation, my guests have flown back to England, the house is clean and my normal routine has returned even if my mojo hasn't. We did lots of sightseeing in Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and Kingston and I saw things I had never seen before so it was fun for me too.

We have been having horrible heat and our guests struggled with that but otherwise they said they had a good time. Now we are planning to visit them in September and during that time the four of us are going to Rome for a few days.

Our challenge to you this week at Phindy's Place challenge blog is to make a card with GINGHAMS OR PLAIDS.  You don't have to use a Phindy image but if you do, you get to enter twice.

I used soft ginghams on my card but I had a terrible time getting a good photo.  If I brightened everything up, there was no definition on the charm so you have to settle for a little dull photo.  It is quite pretty in real life. The wonderful image from Phindy is paired with some equally wonderful word art from Paulette at Create with TLC - another of their great collaborations.

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