I cannot do a blog post today without first expressing my deepest sympathy to the families of all the victims in Connecticut.  A tragedy like this is always hard to understand but when innocent children are targeted it brings sadness beyond compare.  My thoughts and prayers are with that whole community during the coming weeks.

Todays sketch was pretty challenging for me.  I'm going to show you the sketch and then my first attempt and final attempt.  So here's the sketch:

Whew!  Really plain and wait..... I forgot two key elements.  What to use?  How about one last chance at a set that will not be available after January 2nd?  Yes, Affection Collection!  Here's how my card changed:
