Last Card Patterns DT Card


Today is a sad day for me.  I have LOVED every minute of being on the Card Patterns Design Team, and wish that my husband wasn't deployed so that I could have stayed on for another term as Michelle so graciously offered.  Well, I guess I wish he weren't deployed for other reasons too ;)  I have to bring a little humor to a long, not fun, time without him.....

This is my take on the sketch this week from Card Patterns, which you can see HERE on the CP blog.  The Digi Shack is still the sponsor of the prizes for the winner of the drawing too, so don't miss out on that!

I hope you like my card and please continue to check out the CP sketches each week, I know I will!  I hope to be able to play along still, as time permits, I'll just have to wait like the rest of you to see the lovely sketches as they are posted instead of before-hand.

Don't forget that each week you can enter (by posting a link to your card using that weeks sketch) via Mr. Linky (or by leaving the link in the comments section if Mr. Linky is "down" as it has been very often of late) for a chance not only to win a great prize, but also a spot as a Guest Designer over at CP on a future sketch.

See you over there!
