Sketch Girl #8






Here is my take on the fabulous sketch 8 from Leigh Ann ..... I thought since is last of October which is the month of Breast Cancer Awareness..... So I designed this card and used it at my Tuesday Night Group as my shoebox swap..... While we were making the cards we shared some personal experiences.....

Please go visit the blog site and get creating and then link your creation up to Mr. Linky and share your card with us.....

Disappointed

Wanted to let you all know that my part of the event was a total failure.... no one was interested in the cards .... it might have been the wa=y i had them displayed but I really think it is the people around here.... they were interested in the jewelry which is no big surprise to me... so I am dishearted and not in too much of a mood to make anything....

But no fear everyone I will be bacccckkkk !!!!!!

Penny Black Stamps

My source of Penny Black Stamps ( pbstamps.com ) now has a second online stamp store called RK Stamps and is carrying Stampabilities, Great Impressions, Lockhart, and Northwood stamps.

I have just spent the last hour there and looking around and have a wish list a mile long... I am telling you that you will NOT find these stamps @ a better price and this company is fab to work with....

Go check them out and when you buy please tell them that Harriet Hensley sent you....
