TAMARA'S SKETCH CHALLENGE

Hi all!! Here it is, Thursday already and Spring Break is half over :-( I have really enjoyed the lazing around in the mornings, and staying up late with the kids at night! We were supposed to be going to Six Flags today but San Francisco is having bad storms today and tomorrow so we have changed out plans to Saturday. The kids were a little disappointed but who wants to go in the rain?? Not me!! So, today has become errand day! And, I will get some stamping time in as well, lol!! Today is Tamara's Sketch Challenge and it was a fabulous sketch as always!! I had fun playing with this - I used my Hostess Set called God's Beauty. It is a gorgeous little stamp set, I love playing with it! This is going to a special friend who could use a pick me-up as she is going through some hard times right now! So, now that you have seen mine, make sure you head over to Tamara's site and check out what the rest of the fabulous DT gals have done with this - amazing stuff, I tell ya!! And, remember, if you play along, upload a link to the site so we can all come check it out AND you will get considered for the Friday Features and have your creations displayed on the site - pretty cool!!! Now, I am off to the computer store, post office, and Blockbuster - such an exciting life I lead, lol!! Have a fabulous day all and thanks for stopping by!
