Just so much FUN!



I have to admit, I am a craft store junkie!! The worst kind. Sometimes I go to Joann's or Michael's just to look at all the fun stuff they have and to get ideas and see what is on sale, even if it is nap time and I have two cranky kids with me. I find that Katelynn, my almost 3 year old, has gotten so use to leaving the house before lunch...that's when I get my craft store fix, that when she sees me putting on my jacket or shoes she asks where we are going, even if I am just headed out to the trash she thinks we are going shopping. A few weeks ago she asked if we were going to "Joann's", like it is a persons house.
Well, with all of my trips, I have picked up some goodies and now I am getting a chance to use them and see my ideas blossom onto or should I say out of paper. I mentioned a few posts ago that my friend and old roommate Melissa got me hooked on a new web-site http://2sketches4you.blogspot.com/ where they have weekly challenges. Well, if you like crafty stuff you should check it out.
Here is my card for Laura's sketch #18, hope you like.

I love your take on the sketch. It's fascinating seeing people's different interpretation of the sketches. Where is the tree from? It's fab!

Thanks for leaving a note on my blog telling me how you made your bird. You are very talented, I'm not sure I would have made such a good job of it!
