Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch #223 Sponsor A Day For Daisies

Vintage Sharla

Welcome to another wonderful very windy Wednesday here in New Zealand.
I can't believe it's count down here in my house hold and I only have ten days to go until Liam and I leave for Chile and Argentina.  I have a very busy 10 days ahead of me, with Boarding House dinner on Friday night, all day house sports on Saturday amongst everything else I have to do before I leave.
Vaccinations next week and I have to pick Peso's from a Bureaux de Change as the banks don't carry Chilean and Argentinean Peso's not a popular currency.  
It's another wonderful Sweet Sketch Wednesday.
Congratulations to our winner Lisa Lynn I'm so happy for you and to our Top 3 cards great work ladies.

This week we have a very elegant sketch from our very own Sally Dube.  This is a wonderful sketch for those larger images you want to use.

Lisa Lynn said...

Kathie, wow your card is just perfect for this sketch. Love how you made the side into a pleated curtain. I'm late at looking at my blogs today because we had a storm and lost power for a time this morning, but our Internet was out. Funny how you can't function without that so now I'm just finding out about my win - thanks.
