Hola Chica!

Hey there! Thanks for popping in! Today I have a card for this month's Sketch For You to Try. Oh, how I love seeing the new sketch each month on the first Saturday! Here is the sketch for June:


This month's sketch is sponsored by Stamping Bella. That reminded me that I haven't used my Bellas in forever!! It was fun coloring with them again. Here is my card using my favorite Bella, Gossipabella, and a sentiment that I use ALL of the time (in my everyday language) from the Verve set, Chicks Rule. 


Here is my card:




Isn't she so cute?  This also reminds me that I am using this card for the petite challenge over at Papertrey Posse. Debbie is our hostess for June and her 1st challenge for June to us was to make a card using a current trend.


Well, I have seen lots of chevrons around the stamping world lately, but also a lot of retro things...and this card has ALL of that. Fro the colors (brought to you from my grandmother's kitchen circa 1973..lol) to the little Afro on my soul sistah (chuckle!). So I am going to the retro trend. I'm actually hoping it REALLY takes off because I do love retro. 


Well, i've talked enough. Thanks for dropping in on me and I hope you have a great Sunday! Laters..
