I'm just going to totally ignore the weather, because I have wonderful neighbors and by late last night, they had totally plowed my driveway. They know I love them and I constantly try to fatten them up with shoo fly pies or brownies. Whenever it snows, I run a personal baking marathon....lol.
I don't know about anyone else, but I had trouble getting started with Sketch 93. I just don't like crooked stuff!! It gives me the willies. I have about 20 various papers cut to the proper sizes, just taunting me on my work table. Number 1 turned out ok and I think it's my favorite. At first, I thought it was going to be a little bit too busy.

I really look forward to the weekly sketches on the Stars and Stamps Blog. I try to make a card or two every day, often squeezing in the cutting, stamping and coloring after work and the gluing in the morning before I leave for the day. Sometimes by the weekend, I just feel like I don't have any brain matter left to think. The sketches really help!!!

In the beginning, I was only planning on making something nice for OWH's Sunday Sketch #90. Then I listened to Sandy's rant for this week................well.................then I couldn't stop myself. Sometimes when you get inspiration, you just have to run with it. So.......I ran...... ~Nancy F.

Saturday, October 1st, was World Cardmaking Day and that's exactly what I did. I made cards. All day. And I still only got about 20 of them done. Operation Write Home had a wonderful blog hop to get me inspired and I started out trying to make multiples of each style, hoping to get a good number of really nice cards in my box to mail at the end of the month, but as time went on and I got more and more involved in the blogs, the cardmaking slowed and then before I knew it, I was down to only making one of a kind. All in all, it was a great day and I still felt like I had accomplished a lot. The first two examples were inspired from Sandy. She's ALWAYS an inspiration.
