Crazies and Speedy's Challenges

Crazy4Challenges
Hostess - Silke Ledlow
Challenge - Sketch


I am experiencing some wonkiness with my stampcave computer, so am going to keep this short.  The image and sentiment are both Bugaboo Stamps digi images.

Please be sure to check out the rest of the Crazies at the Crazy4Challenges blog.  You will see the sketch there too.  Details on how you can play along with us will also be found there.

Speedy's Friends Challenge
Hostess - ??? (I apologize, but my challenge list is 'lost' in my old harddrive)
Challenge - Holiday

All images and sentiments on this card are from a set called Seasonal Poinsettia from the Speedy the Cat collection available from Mark's Finest Papers.

Now be sure to check out the team of the rest of this fabulous team at the Speedy's Blog.

I apologize once again for the short descriptions AND less than first quality photos.  I am still dealing with computer/internet issues.  Somehow they didn't go away while I was on vacation.
