TAMARA'S SKETCH CHALLENGE

Hi all!! Well, it's that time again - another sketch challenge from Tamara! Seems like this week blew by me so fast I hardly got any of the things done that needed getting done!! I have also not been feeling very well, so I think I am moving a lot slower than usual, lol! So, this card is made using more new yummy product from the new catty!! (not sure why the background is showing blue since it's white as always) I am lovin' this Raspberry Tart paper although it does force me to use purple way more than I would normally do!! Well, at least I am finding a use for all those card stock sheets I have stuck away - heehee!! I am actually liking the color combo and I am going to use it for my Valentines card class coming up. Maybe I can get that stack of purple paper to shrink *wink*. And, if you notice on the bottom of the card front, I trimmed the edge shorter and added a scallop to give the card some added softness. Make sure you head over to Tamara's and check out what the DT gals did this week, they are amazing!! (no, mine is not there, because of the computer outage I had, my card did not make the deadline!) And, why not try the sketch yourself? Just upload a link to the blog and then we can all come and check them out - I know I would LOVE to see what you all do with this sketch! I will leave you with the recipe, I am off to the doctor to get some good drugs for whatever is ailing me - smooches all, and thanks for stopping by today! I appreciate YOU!!!
