City Crafter Challenge Blog...


Hello...
How are you?

It's that time of the week for me to share with
you what I have made for
City Crafters Challenge Blog.

Boy was it a cold and Windy weekend here in Vegas.
Hard to find any kind life form out in my yard right now!
So you get to see a photo of my dormant Lantana.
I have never seen these little berry type things on 
my Lantana before.  Strange..


Well on to my card I made this week..
I am the host this week and a made up a sketch.




So all you have to do is make a card following the sketch.




Once again I got my image from the Graphic Fairy.
I just love the vintage vibe this card has..


So here is the sketch I made.
It was made on photoshop.. This was the first time
I had made a sketch on photoshop.  Lets just say it took me
awhile..


But I do believe I got the hang of it 
now so Watch-out!  Hee Hee..

So if you would like to see all the detail of this
challenge you can head on over to
And as always you can check out all the creations
the other Ladies have created..

Thanks so much for stopping by my friends.

Hugs, Linda
