It's a challenge

Good morning everyone.

I just thought I would pop on early this morning and show you a card I have made for the new challenge over at Caardvarks. This card is based off the gorgeous Becky Fleck's sketch, which I have turned on it's side.
This year I am hoping to find time to participate in more challenges. I love making cards and would love to give everyone handmade cards, but time just seems to slip away before I get the chance to do them. Every year I think about making a box to put all my handmade cards in so that I can just pull one out when a special occasion approaches. Well do you think I have made it yet...nope. The funny thing is I have the box, it just needs to be decorated. Adding it to my to-do list now (hmmm my to-do list is getting longer by the second).

Thanks for stopping by.
I will be back later today with my daily photo.

What a Beautiful card, and even the inside is nice! I say the same thing about making cards, I do make alot but it seems like I don't have as many as I would like in my reserve. This year I hope to have my card box full!
Have a great week!
