I'm back....finally! Papertrey Paper Dolls Challenge #22

So I'm finally back to blog land......feels good but it also felt good to take a break for awhile.  Anyone else ever feel like this?  My goodness everyone has been busy the past week as I had over 500 items in my Google Reader to go through!  Now, I didn't get to comment like I would have liked to but I did do my best!
I have been extremely busy this past, on-call all night one night, set-up and marked for my garage sale, had garage sale all weekend, worked again this week, funeral today.  Whew....I hope it slows down just a little!  I always have my garage sale with my fantastic friend/neighbor, Michelle, and boy did we do good.  Like $1800 good.  We always say....location location and cheap prices is why we do good. 

So, when it came time for me to host the Papertrey Paper Dolls weekly challenge this week,
I knew exactly what I wanted to do......CAS! 

Here were the details of my challenge and my card for inspiration:
1.  CAS
2.  lots of white space
3.  use a pop of color

Here in Kansas, we've had some rainy days and not so much I took my card outside for
my photo today.  My flowers still look as nice as when we planted them (you can see them in the background).  It's finally the weather where we can sit and enjoy them on our patio.

So what do you think?  I'd love to hear your comments!
