Here Comes The Sun

Hello, sorry that I have been MIA again, I am still dealing with some family issues.  Hopefully things are on the up swing and I will get back to my normal life again soon.  I am currently without internet and have to go somewhere to get online. About two weeks ago I got my first order from Mark's Finest Papers, I love their stamps and I have to say that the shipping was pretty fast.  When I saw this weeks Speedy The Cat's challenge I knew right away what I wanted to make for it, it was just getting the time to make the card.   I am also having to work with very limited supplies and I didn't have any patterned paper or embossing folders, so I pulled out my ink and sponges and made some paper that would work.  As you already know I love to combine challenges so I used the sketch from MoJo Monday and LawnScaping's challenge to use polka dots.   I hope you have a wonderful weekend and thank you for stopping by.
