I knew once I started a blog I would find it difficult to post weekly, but I didn't think it would be so difficult to get in at least one a month! Crazy how fast time flies!! I had to make a birthday card for a friend and I wanted to follow one of the challenges on Splitcoaststampers. It's a bit tricky not doing something Christmas-themed, but I found that this sketch worked well (SC466). I made two cards, thinking it would take no time at all to duplicate a card....well, it is impossible for me to exactly duplicate anything, and for whatever reason, it still took me 45 minutes to make the 2nd card, even though all the supplies were out! Ah, but it was an enjoyable 45 minutes...I love my creative time!! TFL!
