DS59 Mayberry Card

Good evening! It was another sunny, beautiful day in Northern Michigan. Only 3 days left until CTMH Convention in Dallas.... This girl can't wait to hear all the fun news. I am not able to go, but my fabulous upline will be there. Remember, Dawn...stand on your seat and scream on my behalf...please and thanks. LOL

So yesterday, I sat and looked at an inspiration photo from the Inspired By Blog. Here it is:
Isn't it lovely? It had me daydreaming about living in the 1950' of my favorite era's. Of course, I would still have internet connection, computer and all things digital in this daydream. LOL But there I am, sitting at the table having a tea party with my best gal pals, chit-chatting about our families, and sharing advice on laundry stains and canning, etc. On the counter, would be a little love note attached to a paper bag containing this sunshiny fresh pear for my husband....

Well, get the picture. Hehe.

I combined the inspiration photo with a sketch from the Deconstructed Sketch Blog.

Here is this week's fabulous sketch:
