Just a chillin'.....

Had I been on the ball, I would have taken a picture of the page to display here so you could see it. Now you all will have to go out and buy the issue! LOL! I just loved the sketch, the colors, the repeated sentiment on the banner, and the woodgrain background on the cased card! I think I will be making more using this sketch, I really like it!
