Saturday Sketch Challenge 11/27

I hope each and every one of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!  We surprised our family gathering with a special "package".  We got to bring Mother home for the day to be with family.  It was a great day and she did really well.  She was really tired when we took her back, but it was a good tired.  Hopefully, we'll have her home for good in the next couple of weeks.

So, on to my Sketch for the week.  You can see what the other Designers have done through links at the
UDI Blog OR you can follow the link at the bottom of my sketch to do our Saturday Sketch Hop.  I used MDS (My Digital Studio) to create my card.  It is on sale for a phenomenal 50% off!!!!! Just click on the Online Holiday Spectacular button on the upper left side of the blog to be directed to my Online Store and see all the goodies on sale UNTIL NOVEMBER 30TH ONLY.  Now for the Sketch and my card:

Saturday Sketch Challenge 11/6

This will be short and sweet.  I'm off to the Hospital with Mother again.  Bless her heart!!!!  We're trying to avoid her getting as sick as she did last time.  All prayers are appreciated!!!

As always, you can see this week's sketch over at the UDI Blog.  Stampin' Up! has an awesome Papercrafting Software called My Digital Studio.  Not only does it make digital scrapbooking a breeze but we now are offering calendars with easel backs making them great for your desk and journals that you design the cover for!!!!  One of the great things about this software is ability to get our Designer Papers and stamps digitally.  I had a hostess request to use Bells and Boughs at her workshop.  I didn't have that set but it was available as a Digital Download so I printed the image out, colored it with markers, added some Shimmer Paint and, voila!, a hybrid card!!!!!  I even printed out the Designer Paper!

Here's the card!!!

I'll add the supplies in later.  For now, hop on over to Tammy's Blog to see her creation!  Tammy is also participating in the Royal Blog Tour this weekend so if this link takes you to the Tour creations, just scroll down to see her card for the sketch challenge. 

Have a great week!
