Hi Bloggers - thank you for stopping by today. I have to admit, I am not a fan of color challenges - I have difficulty matching the colors - a major struggle for me. I do, however, like to follow a sketch - one of my favorite things in crafting is using a Sketch- as long as the sketch is not too complicated - I guess I like Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy! LOL 

I have blog candy  - look to the top at the right of my blog - click on photo and it will take you to the enter page.

My MIL passed this last week at the age of 95. I was so blessed to receive so many sympathy cards in the mail from my bloggy friends. Thank you for your kindness and for the posting as well related to the life of my Mother-in-Law.  Have a blessed day!

  1. Great card, thank you for joining us over at Kaboodle Doodles this week xx

  2. You did a wonderful job on the sketch. With me sketches are not easy whether they be easy looking or not. I tend to overthink a sketch but am challenging myself to use sketches to get better at them.
