I am happy to report that the weather is finally back to "normal"... there is no snow in our forecast, no frost warnings... a bit of rain, a lot of sunshine and temperatures back to seasonal averages. Whew! I hope we don't get any more snow until sometime in November!
I have had the Card Positioning Systems blog in my Google Reader forever, but have never participated in one of their sketch challenges. I don't know why.... time? didn't appeal to me? didn't think of it? Who knows. The point is, I hadn't played before... until now! Monday I decided to get with it and do a card for their current challenge!
I am very pleased with how this card turned out for CPS119. I like making tall skinny cards. And I have a thing for stripes and polka dots together.
