Hi all!!! Well, as promised, I am back with the first sketch for Tamara's Sketch Team for the year 2009!! I LOVE this sketch, I had so much fun playing with it!! I used the sketch to make another one of my thank yous that I needed for Christmas - and well, you can never have enough of them anyway! Please make sure you head on over to Tamara's site and check out what the rest of the DT gals did - they really ROCKED it!!! And, why not give this sketch a shot yourself? They are a great way to get your mojo flowing - I just love them!! And, you can interpret them ANY way you like - turn is sideways, move things around, whatever you like!! And, if you do the sketch, make sure you upload a link so we can all check it out!! Here is the recipe!
