*Another Sketch Card*

Last Saturday night I had Allison, Shannon and Tracy over to play. We had a great time chatting, eating and even doing a little creating. This was the first time for all of us to meet Allison and the first time we've all gotten together to stamp. We already have plans for next month!

When I said we did a little creating, I mean I did very little creating. Other than a card I will never show anyone, I made one card! The other card was me playing around trying to come up with a design for a special order I am working on and I wasn't "feeling the love" for the colours or the balloon image I was trying to work with. I gave up on that and struggled to create this card.

This card uses a sketch from Jen's blog from several weeks ago. I keep printing off sketches but haven't been down to do much stamping!

I tried a new idea for taking my photos today... not sure how much I like it yet... instead of in front of a sunny window, this was taken in my basement with a white table cloth and an Ott Light... seems kinda yellowish to me... let me know what you think of my photos over the next little while.

Great card, Nancy! I might have to get me some of that paper too. ;0)

I find my pics sometimes get yellow too...I usually just have to brighten them with my photo editing.

Very pretty card Nancy. I think the picture looks good too. I just about bought an Ott light today at Michaels as they are 40% off but still you really like yours?
