     Now I didn't get to pick out the stamps I'd be using for Art Impressions, but something tells me that Kate really picked up on my quirky sense of humor.  If you've been around here for any amount of time you had to have noticed that I will take every opportunity possible to add a silly or snarky sentiment to my cards.  Art Impression images make it so easy to do that.  I mean just look at this pair.  You CANNOT add a straight sentiment to this stamp.  LOL
     I know I'm doing a lousy job of keeping up with my commenting.  For some reason things around here seems to be busier than usual and the stack of "have to do's before you get on the computer" keeps getting higher and higher.  The only reason had got this card done was because I ran across this awesome sketch and the card just flew together in record time (for me).  I'll be around to visit as soon as possible.
     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Craft-room Challenge--here comes summer
Oldie but a Goodie--stitching (my Baker's twine is probably two years old)
Ribbon Carousel--fun in the sun
Love to Scrap--rockin rubbah
Make It Monday--anything goes
Hybrid Chick Card Caravan--lazy days of summer
Cards Galore--sketch
One Crazy Stamper--summer fun

     Happy Wednesday!  Hope you're having as much fun as these two.  ☺

This card is delightful, Tracy! The image is so much fun and the way you have them coming off the edge of the circle creates wonderful movement and energy. Love the stitched rectangles and the pretty scalloped matting. I know what it feels like to get behind in visiting and commenting. People understand, though. Cut yourself a little slack, GF :)
