Wishing You Sunshine

Happy Saturday! Happy Fall! I know this is kind of a funny card for me to be making this time of year, but I'm using up scraps I've discovered while cleaning up my craft room... you know, the ones that are too good to toss... and, trust me, I've tossed a lot...gone are the days of keeping every little scrap. :) Besides, living here in Southern California, where it's HOT HOT HOT, rain is the best I get when it comes to changing seasons. And I happen to LOVE rain. So thanks for indulging me with this sweet image called Rainy Day Ruby from my dear friend Sparkle's store. :)

I made this card for this week's sketch at Sketch Saturday. Our sponsor is The Craft Barn, offering an amazing prize to one lucky player! Be sure to check out the post for all the details and to see the design team's cards...they are spectacular!!!

This is my last hurrah as a design team member for Sketch Saturday. It's been a great run, and I sincerely thank Jo for inviting me to be a part of it all. I was so proud to be the only designer from the US on the team, and it was a really hard decision to step down. But my focus needs to be elsewhere now.  I hope you all will continue to visit their blog and play... the sketches are among the best!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

Your cards are sure to have inspired many, they are so colourful and well made, as is this beautiful card too.
Wishing you good luck and happiness with The Crafts Meow, and I hope to see you as a challenger when you are able to.
