lily lemonade...


This week we are being sponsored by the super fun

KLM Designs!

Go check it out...there is a sale right now on all images...15% off...check out their website for more deets {hurry...it expires 12/01/09!}!


The 365 Cards Design Team had the opportunity to work with some very fun KLM images. This is the Sunday Sketch...whew...not too scary, right? LOL


I got to play with this very pretty Lily image...I wanted to keep the coloring true to life so I kept the color palette pretty clean & crisp. I 'made' up for the lack of nature's coloring with 4 layers of images!


Here is a close up:


I haven't used my Basic Grey Lemonade papers so I decided to use those for today's sketch...such a drastic change in pace for me since I've been all about the holiday's.

Typing about the holiday's....I should be working on my Christmas cards this weekend....I also need to work on some projects for an upcoming gift show so I've decided to reduce my blogging schedule for the next 2 weeks...I'll be "off" Monday through Wednesday and back again Thursday. I have so much to do...I'm sure there are probably a ton of other peeps in the same boat as me:)

Okay, wanted to leave you with another fabbie RAK that I've received....

I know...isn't it simply spectacular?! It's a Heidi Van Laar Original!!! Not only that but she included some goodies too...delish stuff that you'll see soon:) Thanks sista!!! I came across a vintage Heidi book and sent it to...Heidi...LOL.

Okay, my peeps...be on the lookout for another post today with my Blog Candy winner and a pic of this week's blog candy:)
