OMGosh I feel absolutely awful!! So very sorry for the late, late post!!

So I will make this quick...have had lots of things on my mind to say the least! Those of you who are close to me know and I will leave it at that.

On a more positive note and back to being the fun side of me!
This week I decided to make up a sketch for the challenge since my favorite challenges are sketches! So hopefully you all like the change up!!

I had a ton of fun creating this sketch and hope to get to do it again! And I hope you enjoy playing along with it too!!

Roberta's got some new images in the shop and they are super adorable too!! For this card I have used "Swingin' Summer Gilly" I just love this image and was inspired to create the fun summer sentiment to go with it too!
