World Cardmaking Day is coming up on Saturday, October 4th and we are going to celebrate over at Creative Scrappers with a Cardmaking Day Crop! It will get started at 9Am EST and continue until midnight. There will be sketches, challenges and prizes.......and you won't want to miss it!!!

I will be hosting 2 card challenges myself with sketches, so this week I have been working on teaching myself how to make a sketch on my computer. Well............I am so NOT computer savy, and it has been a slow going, trial and error, but I finally found an old program I forgot I had and have made 3 card sketches so far. They are very simple sketches, but I am feeling rather proud of myself, nonetheless. Unfortunately, I will have to keep them under wraps until I post them at Creative Scrappers on October 4th, so come by the Crop and check it out. There will be a ton of great card sketches that day and I know that I am planning on using them to get started making my Christmas cards for this year. I hope to see you there!!!

Take a look at this week's sketch #17 at Creative Scrappers. This great sketch was designed by Allison Cope and below the sketch is my layout of this sketch. Make sure to take a look at the Design Team Reveal of this sketch on the Creative Scrappers Blog. You are sure to find tons of
inspiration there.

Also don't forget that it's only 8 more days until the monthly 1 Hour Sketch Contest. Check out all the details here for the contest on the 23rd. I will also post reminders here when it gets a little closer.

The weather here has been wonderfully cool since Ike moved through on Sunday. There is such a crispness of Fall already, and I have to say that I am more than ready for it. The only bad thing about Fall getting here is that Christmas is soon to follow and I am NOT in any way ready for that. I have been working on planning out some Christmas gifts I am making and gathering supplies for those. Big thanks to my buddy Tam for hooking me up with a more than overly generous RAK that will be such a big help with some of the gifts this year. I luv ya girlie!!!!
Have a wonderful day everyone!
