Freshly Made Sketches {One Year Anniversary!}

Can you believe it! It is our ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our challenge is a bit different this week!!! Before I get to this week's challenge, I would like to welcome Linda Callahan and Rita Wright back for this challenge with us!!! We are excited they could join us for the big celebration!!!

Here are the details!
This week we are opening up our sketch gallery and 
asking you to make a card with any of our past sketches! 

CLICK HERE to see our gallery of past sketches!

My card is really simple this week! I decided to use Sketch #12...I love the classic design...I had the cardinal on my desk all coloured and waiting for a card! This has been a hectic week because I moved schools and have taken on a new grade! Ack! So please forgive my short post!! My new school is 40 minutes away from my home and my old school was 8 is a bit of an adjustment!!! 

I hope you will join in our One Year Anniversary at Freshly Made Sketches this week!!!
