Fall Fest day 2


Exciting news today folks! 
See that fun card above? I designed a simple sketch and then based my card on it.
Here's the sketch:

Each one of the PCD designers has done the same thing, and YOU get to choose one sketch to work with and submit a project to Mr. Linky on Courtney's blog. Now for the exciting part...

wait for it...


wait...


THE WINNER WILL BE A GUEST DESIGNER NEXT MONTH AT PRACTICING CREATIVITY DESIGNS!

*squeal* 
I know, right?

One of the best parts about being a designer is getting to see and use such great stamps before anyone else in the world see's them! (it makes me feel so special!*grin*)

So go check out the other sneak peeks on Karen'sPaulina's, and Courney's blogs and choose a sketch that appeals to you, create a card, then link it on Courtney's blog and sit back and wait!

Now, back to my card! Don't you just LOVE that sentiment?! And I'll tell you, these clear stamps take chalk ink so well. True vibrant colors just rock. Love these stamps...*sigh*

That's all for today peeps, Have a good one!
