Happy World Card Making Day!!! Do you have any plans to celebrate? I have a few things up my sleeve. (*wink*)

First up is Sketch Saturday! It's Paula's turn to host, and she has come up with this awesome sketch for us to play with! Our sponsor this week is Pollycraft!

My card features a free digital image called Harriet drawn by the wonderful Claire Brennan of Waltzingmouse Stamps. Harriet is FREE in celebration of World Card Making Day. You can even enter a card featuring Harriet to win a stamp set of choice! Nip on over to the Waltzingmouse Stamps blog for all the details and to grab your copy of Harriet.

I do believe this is my first Christmas card this year, or close to it. I'm so confused with seasons right now, it isn't even funny! We crafters (like retailers) are always working ahead to the next season. Halloween is just about done and we'll be seeing a bit more of harvest/autumn/thanksgiving before the Christmas season takes over. And, of course, here in Southern California it's officially autumn, but we're getting higher than average temperatures and now thunderstorms and rain. Go figure!

Still, I couldn't resist coloring up this beauty and pairing her with DP from the Jovial collection by Basic Grey. I created the greeting on my computer. The roses are by Prima.

I hope you'll join us for Sketch Saturday this week! It's perfect inspiration for some of those World Card Making Day projects you're bound to be working on. Have fun!
