Sunny Days of Summer

 Hello everyone. Did you miss me? We have been on a trip to Tennessee to visit my Mother and other family. The weather is even hotter there than here in Ohio so most of our time was spent inside in the AC.  It always nice to see family but we are glad to be back home.  I missed talking with everyone in blog land and hope to catch up on some comments.  I made a few cards to posts to catch up with some of the challenges.
  This card is made with Mark's Finest Papers stamp and follows the sketch from Card Patterns shown below.
