*Paradise Sketch*

I've got a busy few days ahead of me and I don't think that there will be any playing.  If I can get the work done in time, I hope to be able to pack up some of my stuff to take to the Crop4Kids that I am working at on Saturday.  This is a great crop with lots of fun classes, that benefits the Alberta Children's Hospital Foundation.  I am working, but will have some time to do my own thing, so if I have time after doing all the preparations I need to do, I will pack up some of my stuff so I can try to play on Saturday.

I'll probably just end up putting off the playing until Sunday though....

I am not thrilled with this card.  It's not bad, but not great either.  I think that the problem is that it just doesn't fully reflect who I am as a creative person...  I dunno.  It's not terrible.... just not "me"
