Beate’s weekend sketch challenge #36 part 1 February 22, 2008

Filed under: weekend sketch challenge — mjalbright @ 9:30 am

Wow!  It’s Friday already.  I’m happy that this week is coming to an end, and I look forward to being snowed in with my family this weekend.  It is snowing here and it should turn to freezing rain shortly…..stay home and catch up on some stamping right?

Here is my card for Beate’s wsc #36  (part 2 will be saturday)

beate wsc #36

While at CHA, I got to spend some time chatting with Alma from The Cat’s Pajamas.  She is so sweet…everyone I met was sweet!!!  I decided to use one of her sets today.  This card is made using It’s A Western Thing.  How cute!  My neighbors son is turning 3 years old in the beginning of March.  Our children play together often so this card is for him.

Now, make sure you head on over to the blogs of these very talented girls to see more samples created for Beate’s wsc:

Cambria Turnbow

Charmaine Ikach

Jenn Balcer

Laurie Schmidlin

Lori Craig

Sharon Harnist

Thanks for all the get well wishes that have been left for me.  I pray you avoid getting whatever it is that is going around.  I haven’t spent this much time in bed since my teen years.  And the dizziness…uggghhh!  I’m still nauseated, have no appetite, and things just taste different.  Oh, and can’t forget the hacking cough.  

Enjoy your weekend.
