Happy Thoughts!


Hello friends,

I couldn’t wait to make a new card and to

take a quick photo with my new photo box! YooHoo!

So I looked at my favorite challenge sites and came up with

this great sketch @ CAS(E) this Sketch and vibrant color

challenge over @ Dynamic Duos.  I am not sure I

have ever made a card with orange and blue

before because it reminds this Noles girl of the

Gators…but I sucked it up and forged ahead! LOL

Here is what I came up with!

I hope it’s okay that my scroll lines mimic the diagonal panel

on the sketch!  Trying to think outside the box!

Still think I need to get brighter light bulbs….think I will make a Walmart run tomorrow!

Hope you are having a terrific day!
