PPC 73 is getting to know Freshly Made Sketches!!


Happy Happy Monday to you all!  It's a new PPC-73 Color Combo Challenge!!  Old Olive, Basic Black and my new FAVORITE... Calypso Coral!!


This is a card I made for my Dad's birthday.  I don't have alot of masculine type crafy things... and honestly, we all know that most guys throw their cards away.  So... I decided to make what I call a "Scrappin' Card."  When in doubt, add a photo.  :-)  Of Grandkids.   He is sure to not be donating this to the round, aluminum cylinder anytime soon.  In fact, I think he said he might be puting this in his car to look at.  Or at least my Mom will.  Woo hoo... success!!  

Freshly Made Sketches #3
I also made my way to this new, CLEAN sketch challenge blog AGAIN!  I am loving their sketches.  Give me a sketch and some colors and I will produce you a card!  Here is their sketch I followed in case you would like to join!  Although, this challenge is ending today at NOON PST.

What a great idea- pics of the grandkids in a "frame" are surely never to be tossed aside. Love the "tags" you made as your take on the sketch - clever!
