Retrosketches - It's Mine!

I have made it in the world of cardmaking - this week's sketch at retrosketches comes from a card of mine!!!  The good ladies at retrosketches took this card of mine (details here) and turned it into a sketch for everybody to try!

Eyes for You in Pink

I am absolutely thrilled!!

But I also had to create another card based on the sketch.  I discovered that's hard to do because I felt like I had to live up to the first one!! What do you think?

Happy Easter Chick
(It's hard to go wrong with that happy little guy!)
I am REALLY looking forward to seeing what you each create with this sketch - hope you have fun!
  • Stamps: The Alley Way Stamps Spring Has Sprung
  • Paper: Simple Stories dsp

Congrats Kim! Your first card really is cute with those glasses, but I prefer the 2nd with that adorable chickie! I love how he/she's all decked out with a little bowtie and those pretty spring-time colors! Cute!
