Caardvark's Sketchfest - Sunday!

Sketchfest Day 1 - View 2

Hello everyone!

It's a blustery day here at Casa de Sexton, with yummy autumn 'sunlights' and our leaves are starting to change!

Today's sketch over at the Caardvark's Blog for the Sketchfest was just right for the awesome fall day that greeted us this morning - 55 degrees, a little crisp, and now, 65 degrees and windy! The perfect jeans, t-shirt and hoody weather!

So Day 1 is under my belt and only 6 more to go! Yippee!

So, my crafty friends, you really should go over and check out the prizes (from Studio Calico) and the awesome GRAND PRIZE is a guest DT membership with the Caardvark's Crew! The Grand prize is only available to those that play all 7 days!

Are ya gonna play?
I double dog dare ya!

Have a great Sunday!

Lovely! The way you used the leaves is so pretty! (Swirls) I tried the sketch but I am horrible at designing from a sketch. So I might play a few times but not today!
