Crazies Challenge 25 -- A Sketch

This week, Robin, our hostess for February, challenged the Crazy 4 Challenges team to create a card with a sketch.  Well, I went ahead and make the first card you see here, thinking autumn and those rich colors of the season.  Then, I went.....

DUH!!!

Our sponsor this week is Totally Stampalicious and I really should have used the stamps I have from this fabulous company, especially since one of our team members is a co-owner of the company.  So off I went to play with this 'old brawd'. 

In the end, I really wanted to share both cards.  That is why you have two cards here using Robin's sketch, which is fab by the way!!!  Well...now you need to go and check out the creations by the rest of the team and here are the links which will help you find your way.....

Hey-hey-hey, SnoSnertie!!! I'm so glad you became an "...ertie". Da Mudder and I deemed it important, ya know.
I can see you've been very busy creating more of your GAWJUS cards! These two are as different from one another as can be, but they still have your signature style all over them. You've got the eye for color and detail, and I love your beautiful ribbons!
Hugs, buddy!
