I hope you've had a fabulous weekend! 

Mine has been busy but fabulous. Yesterday, my parents, sister, bro-in-law and Nephew arrived for a week long stay, just in time to attend Chester's spring piano recital! Last week was a busy one and though I have a some cards to share, just didn't manage to get anything posted. Ah, well. I am likely to be rather absent this week as well as I enjoy my company and squeeze in an out-of-town work trip as well.

I did want to share this card that I made for Laurel's current Inspired by challenge. Though I didn't use the chalkboard technique, I did manage to incorporate the distressed feel (courtesy of this fab paper from Crate paper) as well as most of the colours. This paper line was SO fun to play with!

Here is the inspiration photo:

I would also like to share at Crazy 4 Challenges where the current challenge is New Arrivals.

Thanks so much for visiting!
