Card Recognition

3 sketch cards

So I took the weekend off and had some r&r, but as a result of several days of no crafting I sorted went off the deep end when I got home (and a few new PTI goodies were sitting at my door, so...).  I went for the sketch challenges and found inspiration in three different ones.


This sketch is from Lily Pad Cards and now that I look at the sketch I realized that I don't have a sentiment.  Oops.  I was playing with the new PTI letter dies and made a whole bunch of personalized cards, but can't post all of them because the other friends might spy them on here.  I'm guessing my friend Lydia is too busy to find her card here...



This simple little card is a multi-challenge number.  The sketch for Skipping Stones, color for CR84FN and owls for Wee Memories "Woodland Animals".


And since I was trying to get organized to post the Skipping Stones Design card before the deadline, I sorta got distracted by this week's sketch.  I used some of the fabulous Paper Source paper I've used on this and this card.  And on a note of thanks, I wrote up a nice little post on my work blog to say thanks to my community who has made our free vegetable cart so successful this year, click here to read about the feel good little project.
