Card Sketch October #4

Wednesday, October 24, 2007

Happy Wednesday!!! It's sketch day again! Parents are here and we're busy catching up. Just popping on to upload the cards and let everyone know we're ok. Fire near us is 80% contained, so that's great news! Digital template can be downloaded here.

This weeks sketch is actually based on these cards I made during my mad Holiday card making phase the other week. I always say I get inspired by lots of things and sometimes the sketch comes first, sometimes the card. This was a card first time. Everything on these cards is from my stash... yes it IS going down I swear!!!
