TAMARA's SKETCH CHALLENGE - WHOOHOO!!

Hi all! Well, it's Thursday again (man, this week flew by!) and so it is time for another fabulous Sketch by Tamara!!! I wasn't too sure about it at first because I could not figure out what I wanted to do, but then it all came together and I am pretty happy with the result! I used a new to me set called Pretty Amazing - and it is!! I can't believe how long I waited to get this set!!! I decided I wanted to go soft with this one so I used all my pinks! And, I glittered my little hummingbirds, and I just love the way the glitter picks up the color underneath!! Like this? Well, wait until you check out what the rest of the dt gals did - WOWZA!!! I just love being a part of such a talented group of ladies! And, remember, if you give this sketch a try (and I hope you do!) upload a link to Tamara's site so we can all see!! I will leave you with the recipe as I have to drive 2.5 hours to see the orthopedic specialist for my leg - uggghhhhh!!!! Seems I did a number on it and right now I have a huge brace and a cane - yes, it's official, I AM getting old!! So, I am off to see what the real damage is and I am really hoping I won't need a cast or anything like that!!! I will let you know tomorrow - thanks for all the kind words and emails, I really appreciate them! Smooches!

Hey Alex - this is a wonderful card. I love the little hummingbirds - saw one in real life for the first time outside my deck door - I was so excited. I hope everything goes well with your leg!!!!!! I'm currently waiting for a date for a total knee replacement. I'm hoping I can get through to my 2 Christmas concerts before I have to go in!
Have a great day.
