TAMARA'S SKETCH CHALLENGE!

Mornin' all!!! Today is Tamara's sketch challenge again - love Thursdays! :-) I had a lot of fun with this one!!! I was trying for a little bit of the old-fashioned feel since this is for someone who really loves that look, and I am hoping I pulled it off!! Lots of stitching on this one, but it was worth it! And, I used some of the beautiful Holiday Treasures Dsp (got my order in, don't have to hoard it anymore!) which I absolutely love and will be using in my classes AND workshops this coming week!! Please make sure you stop by Tamara's and check out what the rest of the DT came up with - you will be so glad you did!! And, if you do the sketch, upload the link so we can all come by and take a peek! Here is the recipe! Have a great day - I have a huge schedule of errands to take care of today BUT my husband is coming home tonight for the weekend - whoohoo!!! Can't wait!!!!
