Hi all,
Happy Sunday to you! Hope you had a great weekend. I will tell you about mine but first I have a card to show you that I'm entering into 2 challenges - Card Patterns sketch 130 and CR84FN37.

I struggled with both challenges as I wanted to add more embellies to shabby it up and the colors threw me off. I found it hard to combine blue with turquoise. But I did! Take a look:

The card stock and ribbon is Stampin Up's Baja Breeze. Pattern paper is from Melissa Frances' Kitschy Kitchen line.The chipboard circle is also by Melissa Frances. Buttons are from my stash.

The weather here in Chicago land has been just perfect. No humidity and in the high 70's to low 80's. Perfect weather for a wedding! Speaking of, my nephew got married this weekend. Beautiful ceremony. My brother and SIL from Southern Indiana drove up for it. I met up with them the night before at a cute Irish Pub called Kerry Pipers. Since the weather was cooperating, we sat outside on the patio and ate appetizers and enjoyed a few beverages! Then Saturday, after the church ceremony, I spent some more precious time with my bro and SIL before they headed back home. I don't see them but a few times a year so it was good to see them.

Well, I better go post my card for the challenge before I forget! Have a great week,
