TAMARA'S SKETCH CHALLENGE

WOW!! Here it is, Thursday already and I am sooooo not ready yet for my Open House tomorrow night - LOL! I stamped all day yesterday and late into the night, and have some really fun projects to share with you all BUT today I am going to share my take on this week's sketch by Tamara!!! Fun sketch, so much you can do with this one!! I decided to go ahead and make a Valentine for my husband - I am feeling very proud of myself since I normally wait until the last minute for ANY family cards. Heehee, as much as I stamp, there is NO excuse but it happens all the time!!! But, this one will be waiting for a WHOLE week!!! Now, be sure to hope on over to Tamara's site and check out the rest of the DT gals because their projects are always sooo fabulous and inspirational - I swear, sooo much talent!! And, if you decide to give the sketch a whirl, please upload a link to the site so we can all check it out! Now, back to stamping, cutting, measuring, hah!! Another full day in the stamp room - is this really my job?? It is way to much fun to be a job!!! LOVE IT!!!! Have a fabulous day!
