Hope you all had a safe and Happy Holiday weekend!
My niece just turned 18 and I needed to make her a card (and send money of course) however, I wasn't feeling very creative. I decided to look check in to some of the challenges that http://felineplayful.blogspot.com/ had listed. I get a live feed from her & she has a variety of different challenges that bloggers have for everyday of the week. You should check her out if you haven't already. Well I found a sketch challenge over at http://cardpatterns.blogspot.com/ (sketch #92) that I thought would be fun to play with and I did have fun! It was hard to come up with something because she's really not into clothes or music, but more so into Art and school. She's a wonderful Artist, I'll have to post some of her paintings she gave me for Christmas one year. In fact she's looking into Colleges now with a good Art program. I hope she doesn't think it's too babyish, but I've always wanted to use this Elephant. I think it turned out really cute and it's not the best photo, but please let me know what you think.
For some reason I couldn't get the inside of the card to upload, but it says
"Hope you had a Ton of Fun!"
