CASology and Freshly Made Thanks

I’ve had less access to my computer at night lately, since Hubby’s year-end process requires him to work from home at night more.  So I have been trying to quickly get my cards made and my blog posts up in between lessons and shopping and laundry and everything else during the day.  Otherwise it would be very, very silent here on the blog!

Here is a card I squeaked out today for the CASology #19 and Freshly Made Sketches #61 challenges:

I thought this simple sketch would be good for the CASology challenge, as well.

I picked up some colored pencils at Joann yesterday, and I had some stamped Clearly Besotted images sitting around in my stash, so I figured why not!  Obviously I need more practice, but I think it turned out fairly decent for my first go.

I love this image – it’s so pretty.

Thanks for stopping by today. 😉
