A site for my handmade cards, accompanied by my photos and written meanderings which are occasionally witty, often tongue-in-cheek, and rarely profound. Beginning in June 2013, you'll also see lots of NBUS, which is an acronym I coined for Never-Before-Used-Schtuff. Feel free to join in, use the acronym, and use up your NBUS too! Thanks for coming by! Have a beverage and enjoy!

Freshly Made Sketches #24-A Sketch by Rita Wright

My second post today.  I just came across a new challenge called Freshly Made Sketches and I'm linking this card quickly tonight because the challenge closes in hours.  I would prefer to photograph it during the daylight outdoors, but this will have to do under the circumstances.  This is the sketch:


I made a version of this card a few days ago for a new stamping friend who included me in a workshop and, as is usually my custom, I made a duplicate card.  Creating this thank you gave me the opportuntiy to watercolor, which I enjoy, and to use one of the cute little SU clips which she gave me.  I hadn't yet included this card in a post and when I came across the Freshly Made Sketches website and realized the card would qualify with a minor adjustment, I got right to it.  At least I think it will qualify and I trust someone will let me know if I am wrong about that.


Enjoy!
