Get Sketchy Challenge #1


I don't know what's gotten into me, but I've been making some elaborate and embellished cards lately. But I'll always love CAS, too!

I discovered a new challenge blog. They have prizes! Who doesn't love that!?! I found the link in Stampin' Annie's gallery.

This is adorable -- and a riot of color! I have enjoyed visiting your blog and seeing lots of great work. COngratulations on the weight loss -- I've lost a lot of weight since I retired -- guess no more on the run eating helps. I had my hubby take one of those classic pictures where you hold out the waistband of those now too large pants -- it feels good huh?
