Holiday Candles

Good morning and welcome to my blog.  Today is Wednesday which means it's another Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.  Congratulations to our winner and to our top 3 cards, great work everyone.  Sorry I didn't get around to commenting on you cards this week, I haven't felt the best with ongoing headaches, Liam had a operation on his toe and then Easter and being away at the Beach House with no internet access.

This week we have another sketch from Sally which has a lots and lots of layers.

Sketch #86

I've used Holiday Candles by Fresh Brewed Designs and a sneak preview of the inside of my card.

So beautiful Kathie. That image is so elegant and then your colors and papers on your card only emphasized it's elegance. Really pretty this week. I hope Liam starts to feel better soon too.

Lisa Lynn said...

Kathie, this is gorgeous. Love your image and you did a beautiful job inside and out. You have had too much stress so it's not surprising you have some headaches. Also have some changing in the weather I'm assuming. So take care!!!! Hope Liam is doing OK and not hopping around like the Easter bunny.
