Something new...

Morning friends...today something new starts on my blog. A month or so back I joined a Yahoo group called Utah Diva's International. UDI is a group of SU! demonstrators and we all share our work, advice, and stamping fun with each other through a Yahoo group and through the UDI blog. Well, earlier this week I got an e-mail asking me to be on the design team for one of their challenges...they have an inspiration challenge, a sketch challenge, and then they also have stampers that update their blog everyday. I got to choose which team I wanted to be involved with and guess which one I chose? That's right! Sketches...I do love 'em and I think they love me too! So...today is the first sketch challenge that I'm officially part of the sketch team. And a good one it is too!

My card for this sketch challenge is made with patterned paper from the Holiday Lounge Designer Series Paper pack as well as stamps from the Christmas Punch and Sweet Seasons stamp sets. The card itself is pretty self explanatory, I think but if you need any information just let me know!

You will find the sketch HERE. I would definitely encourage you to participate if you have time as this is a very versatile sketch.

Alright, that is my fun news for the day. I hope you like the card and I'll see ya soon!
