MIA Comeback: CPS Sketch & a Winner

Apologies for a little hiatus the last week or so. Several family concerns had come about and my focus was needed elsewhere. Things are good here on the home front, but there are a few things, believe it or not, that just won’t wait while I make a card and type a blog post. <grin>

I did enjoy this weeks’ CPS Sketch Challenge. I paired it with one of my favorite Whiff of Joy images, Sweet Cake and some delicious ribbon from our CPS sponsor this week, Really Reasonable Ribbon. What’s not to love about ruffled, gingham chocolate ribbon? Seriously! Check the sketch and link us up to your post. You could win some yummy ribbon from our sponsor!

And, I owe you an apology for the delay in posting my Copic Coloring Guide winner from last week. The winner of my autographed copy is Sue O. I have her email address, and I’ll contact her for shipping info. Thanks so much for all of your sweet notes and entries. I do love your feedback.

I’m heading to Phoenix in the morning to teach a Standard Copic Certification on Friday. Marianne is meeting me there so that she can teach the Intermediate class on Saturday. Should be a great, quick trip!

I’ll be back Friday morning with a sample for Taylor’s Sketch Challenge!

Have a beautiful day!
