3 Clover's Thursday Challenge #21-Homemade Treats Season

homemade treats make good eats



Another week at 3 Clovers Thursday Challenge...this week is this fun sketch!

I find it so much easier to make a card if I start out with a sketch... so I was so glad to see Kerry had a sketch planned for her "design team girlies" this week! A sketch takes away half the thinking for me LOL! (and I need all the help I can get!)

I used some of my now retired SU! DP and was hoping more of the big pink polka dots would show...oh well...I did manage to use another uninked Mousie for this card too!

I was going through some of my stamps the other night trying to convince myself that I need some more new stamps...but I found so many that haven't been inked yet...I am making good progress, but I need to use what I have...that has always been my goal since I started this blog...but then again...


Give this fun sketch a try...can't wait to see what everyone creates with it!


I chose to combine this sketch challenge with this week's House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge which is SEASONS.

Now, if you are a regular reader of my blog and been around since before last fall...you know I live different seasons than most people's Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall. My seasons are , pre harvest prep=spring, Harvest=summer , Relaxing after harvest=Fall and Winter is COOKIE and CRAFTING season! Yep, you heard me...I start baking in Oct/Nov for the holidays, and that is my favorite season of all! You can catch some really fun cookie recipes on my blog HERE or find the cookies list under my labels.
