TAMARA'S SKETCH CHALLENGE - MY NEW FAVORITE!

Hi all!! Yep, it's Thursday again and guess what that means?? Another fab sketch from Tamara!! And, this one is totally my favorite out of all the ones we have done so far! I just love the four images in the corner and can see me playing around and moving them around - totally fun!! I made this card for an upcoming Christmas card class that I am having - one down, fourteen to go, lol!!! But hey, it's a start, right? *wink* So, make sure you head over to see what the rest of the Design Team did - this is the last week for a lot of them, and we will have some brand new designers next week! So, go and give a shout out to the gals, their creations are fantabulous!!! And, if you do the sketch, make sure you upload the link to the site so Tamara can show off your creations and we can all ooh and aaah!!!! As for me, I spent the last day and night cutting card stock and getting ready for my Cards for the Troops Event this afternoon! I am a little nervous as I am going to be by myself so I have decided to set it up in stations to make it easier on me AND them, lol!! Since I can display my stuff, I have chosen all the upcoming classes that I have and will have sign-up sheets available as well. I really hope this goes well, I think sometimes we build up our expectations and are inevitably let down by reality. I will let you know tomorrow how everything went!! Until then, here is the recipe for this card - toodles!!
Card Recipe:
Paper - Riding Hood Red, Pretty in Pink, Naturals White card stock, Bella Rose Designer Series Paper
Inks - Riding Hood Red Classic Stampin' Pad
