It's Not All Black and White

Hello Again!

Did you think I dropped off the face of the Earth? Some days I feel like I did. I'll come back (soon, I promise) to let you know what's been keeping me so busy and away from blogging. But for now, I have eye candy. Go easy on me! This is the first time I've stamped since November, if you can believe it. Wow, time flies.

This card is for Lizzie Anne's design team challenge for the month. And you can play along, because it's also the sketch challenge for the week. Check it out.I love that the sketch calls for a peek-a-boo window, allowing your recipient to get a little glimpse to the inside of the card right away. It also makes for a very pretty inside, with no extra stamping! Below you'll see that I added the With Sympathy single in purple to this flower from the August 2009 Monthly Mix set, Hey Sunshine. I love how even the little butterfly peeks through the window.
I can't wait to catch up with all of you and will be doing some serious blog hopping now. Thanks for stopping by.
