I've been a bit MIA in posting and commenting lately.  Our oldest son had unexpected appendectomy a week ago, so priorities shifted a bit.  He is recovering nicely and I have enjoyed my time with him. 

Returning with a fun card using two of my new Repeat Impression stamps (thanks Wendy) on a CAS card for their  few challenge and a few other fun challenges this week.  I thought this was a fun sketch  and the motorcycle was perfect for this.  I also used the Tim Holtz brick background for some interest and pop dotted the motorcycle for dimension.   I just love the sound of motorcycles, it always brings a smile to my face.

Wishing everyone an enjoyable long holiday weekend, hopefully with some crafting time!

A few fun challenges:
Cuttlebug Mania: Embossing

Cool ultra masculine design!

So sorry my visits have been a bit irregular lately, MIL was here 5 nights from mid May, the following weekend my parents spent with us in Oslo and have just now completed a trip to celebrate hubby's sisters' (twins) 50th birthday. 1000 km driving in two days. Weekdays spent at work and outdoors. Soon going on holiday, but things will get back to normal again in July:) I'll be around as much as I can for the rest of this month.
