Hello and happy Hump Day!

It's been raining here pretty much all day....it's kinda depressing! I should be cleaning my house, but I decided I'd rather make a card ;).

The awesome Sweet Sunday Sketch #297 caught my eye and I decided to combine it with the fun CASology #175 - Pie theme!

What do you think...the pie looks good enough to eat...right?!? The image is a retired Flourishes Set and unfortunately I don't know the name of it anymore! 

Wishing you a fabulous day and I hope to be back soon! 

                                                                 Hugs, ~Silke~
