Sketch Day...and Vacation Time!

Good Saturday Morning!

As you read this today....we are well on our way for our vacation!! Brian wanted an EARLY start at like 3 am...ugh...he wanted to be at the Canadian/US border by 9 so the wait won't be so long...lol
Before I start did you all see the newest Dirty Girls on SCS....our very own Amy Sheffer from the OCC and Cindy Lawrence. Congrats girls!

Today I have a couple of sketch challenge cards to share with you.

This first one is for Our Creative Corner. As you know I'm the August hostess and this week I came up with a sketch for the girls. You will see that my sample is a little different than the sketch. I decided to do a tall card and rather than do scallops on the bottom, I went with a row of stars to match my designer paper ;)

I did make another card using this sketch and if you are a fan club member at SCS then you may have seen THIS one in this months Fan Club Gallery yesterday.
Don't forget to check out all the other girls cards either on the OCC blog or at their own blogs which you can find on the right sidebar ;)

Julee has made another fabulous sample this week as well!

Here is the sketch!
I hope that you will play along and if you upload to SCS to use the keywords OCCC so we can find all your fabulous creations!

This is my card for Lauren's awesome sketch this week! Be sure to pop on over to her blog and see what everyone else on her sketch team is up to!

Thanks for stopping by!
