This is a new sketch challenge for me. Jessica (The Whimsical Butterfly) hosts a sketch challenge every Tuesday featuring a sketch from her daughter Madelynn. Jessica's blog is wonderful and you really need to check it out! Here's this week's sketch and my card from the sketch.
Today's celebration candy addition is a brand spanking new pad of DCWV Far East paper. I've seen some really wonderful creations out there in blogland using this paper and I would love to see what the winner creates with it!
I hope everyone had a happy, safe and warm New Year's Eve. We had a great time hunkering down in front of the fire eating crab legs (our tradition for about 10 years now) and talking about what we want to do in the coming year. DH is preparing to retire and move the boat east to live on during the summer months and I want to try to push myself in my stamping by getting on a design team, getting published and learning how to use the stamp making kit I got for Christmas last year! We'll have to see how that all works out over the next year.
Thanks again for all your wonderful words and encouragement over the last year. I appreciate each and every one of you and really feel like I have made some wonderful new friends!
