2 Sketches 4 You!

This week at 2 Sketches 4 You, Laura is hosting. Her sketch is wonderful! I had quite a stash of Melissa Frances paper that I purchased from Noel Mignon's store. So I did what came naturally.......went vintage! The sentiment was by Hero Arts. The tag peeking out from behind is from Target. (It was part of their shabby/chic line). The word girlfriend is actually a rub on that I placed on paper and cut around. I did some machine stitching and added pearls to the corners.

On a personal note, I am having car trouble!! My right rear tire is bowing out. So Toyota thinks it could be a bent axle. They won't know for sure until I take the car in on Friday morning. Of course they won't fix it, because it is not a Toyota issue, it is a mobility issue. ( I have a ramp van). The mobility place is claiming that it is not a mobility issue......you get the idea! It is sooooo frustrating to have paid soooooooo much for this van and have had nothing but problems since day one! On top of that Cortney's chair STILL needs to be repaired for the umpteenth time! They are coming out AGAIN tomorrow to fix her brake! So due to all this crap...and a few other things.....I have been a bit foul! Maybe today will be better!

What an awesome card! Love the vintage look. Wish I could design like this when things haven't been going right. I do hope life will turn around. I can relate to the run around the dealships give you. Hang in there and everything will work out in the end. Linda Gray
