Hi!  I hope all the moms had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend.  I'm ready for a vacation, for sure!  I loved this Vacation Challenge and I made a card using Aim for the Clouds and tried my very best at creating a sunset with Copic markers.  I loved how it turned out, especially with the mountains and fields in front - looks just like my little town!  The layout is Retro Sketches' RS#11.

I hope you will join in this week!  Can't wait to see what you create.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

stamps: aim for the clouds (tsg)
paper: sno cone (mft), choice snow white (te)
