RetroSketches #160 and MFT Color Challenge #19

IMG_7787

Time for this week's Sketch at RetroSketches!

Our sketch this week is based on a gorgeous card by RetroSketches designer Jeni Allen.

I combined this weeks sketch with My Favorite Things Colour Challenge #19.
I was itching to play with my You Make My Tail Wag stamps and dies so thus our blue doggie appears, isn't he cute?

I am also submitting this to this week's Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - April Showers! and to Addicted to CAS #61 - Showers. What does my card have to do with those you might ask, I think it is pretty self explanatory--LOL!







Heading up to Sudbury today to visit Ben at school and to attend the Year end Open House.
I love to have the opportunity to see what he has been up to at school this year.  It is a 5 hours trip upp there but i am driving to his girlfriend house to meet up with her parents (that is halfway) then driving up with them so that saves a bit of the driving for me. Ben is coming home for a few days to study so he will be covering the driving on the way home. 

Have a Happy Saturday!

This card absolutely cracked me up. A blue dog. A blue dog tinkling. But I love it. It's fun and funny! Great use of the colors; they work so well together. And I'm glad to hear you won't be making the drive alone. Let those 'young' people do all the driving! Be safe and enjoy your time up north. Bev
