My Card for This Week's Sketch Saturday

Good morning! Sketch Saturday has a really nice sketch this week--different than some I've seen. It was fun to put together, and I used sewing, which I don't do very often. And I tried paper patching, which was the Everybody Art Challenge this week. I love the color combination from Color Q--this is such a neat challenge blog! The Crafty Angels and Cupcake Craft challenges this week were "thought" challenges. Childhood memories and My Favorite Things. This stamp speaks to both of those! My mom is a librarian, so of course we read books together all the time when I was little. And I love reading to my own children (many times I read them books I read when I was young--fun!) Great ideas, ladies! This card isn't my very best--my sewing needs some work, but I guess every card doesn't have to be a perfect work of art, does it? I tried something new and had fun and that's what I make cards for so it's all good. . .

I also designed this card to enter several challenges:
Sketch Saturday
Everybody Art Challenge--Cute
Cupcake Craft--Childhood Memories
Crafty Angels--My Favorite Things
Color Q

Wonder where I'm finding all these challenges? On this blog--very cool!

I hope everyone has a good weekend! Thanks for looking! Lisa :-)
