City Crafter Challenge Blog ~ week 39 Sketch Challenge

Good morning everyone ... It's Ros back with you this week
and may I first wish you all a 
 Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year!
This week I thought I would set a sketch challenge ... 
 I hope I've kept it pretty simple
You can flip it ... turn it ... whatever suits you as long as you keep within the sketch ...
This is my first at setting a sketch challenge so I can't wait to see what you come up with
Have fun!

~ Ros

CCCB week 38 ~ Sketch Challenge

Guest Designer
I am pleased to introduce our Guest Designer that will play along with us this week, I am sure a lot of you already know how talented and how sweet this crafter can be, let's welcome Tracy MacDonald

Tracy: I am a stay at home wife and mom and live in southern Mississippi. My husband and I just celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary and we have a beautiful daughter who's almost twenty. I've been making cards since last spring and I also love to make mini scrapbooking albums. I love vintage/shabby chic, but I also love to stamp and use Copic Markers
