Paper Players Challenge- A Sketch by Nance

Wow!  Two weeks away from the computer has flown by and I am back!  My hubby and I had a great time on the Oregon Coast and then spent this past week fishing at a lake about 4 hours from our home.  It was lovely.  I have to say, I was pretty proud to be the lead fisher "person" with 3 fish caught!!  Yippee!  And they were BIG trout!  It was exciting and they were sure yummy cooked on the campfire!  Corey has the camera, he and his dad are off ocean fishing today, but I will add some photos of our trip(s) as soon as the camera is back!

Today at the Paper Players Nance has created a terrific sketch for us to try!  I made a card for it a LONG time ago, right when I first saw her wonderful sketch!  I changed up the ribbon placement, mostly because of memory problems, but I am happy with how the card turned out!!!  I hope you like it too! My card club made this card for their last class.  We were doing watercolouring, I used Tangerine Tango and Peach Parfait for my colour choices.

We hope that you will join the Paper Players Challenge this week!  Please be sure to visit the other DT Members to see their wonderful creations!

Thanks for stopping by!!!
