Lacy Hello!

I hope you're having a great week so far!  We had a good day today.  We had a play date this morning with a friend of ours.  The kids all had a blast together!  I made lasagne for dinner tonight...three of us ate it...Caleb gagged on it...what else is new?  He did manage to get a few bites in though.  Honestly, you would think I had asked him to eat a frog or something!

Okay, today's card is for two challenges!  The Colour Q challenge and the Retro Sketches challenge.  I love the colours this week at Colour Q.  I think they're some of my favourites...the only thing is (and I'm ashamed to admit it) that I don't own Poppy Parade ink!  Shameful I know!  Especially as a demonstrator!!!  I honestly didn't like those In Colours at all so I never ordered any of the ink or markers!  I substituted some Real Red in there instead (hope that's okay ladies!).

The retro sketch this week was great and I enjoyed working with it.  I couldn't wait to get out my Lacy and Lovely stamp set.  I have been itching to make something out of it.  Lesley Croghan made a card for the Sunday Stamps challenge last week with it and since then I've been so excited!

I have to get ready to head out to a meeting.  I'm getting this post ready now so it can be ready to go if I get home late tonight!
