CAS[E] this Sketch #192

Sam Simpson's Sketch this week gave me the perfect opportunity to make a special birthday card for a special friend - my oldest, in fact, in duration - not years!  Miriam and I picked blueberries when she visited last year - our first visit in 50+ years!


A very new [and especially sweet] friend in Germany had a little I.G. contest recently.  Guess who won?  I am so lucky, in so many ways ... thanks Maria!

For CTS #192:

Concord & 9th: Wildflowers;  Altenew: Smile for the sentiment.

I am lucky to get to see all the beauty you all enter in the CTS gallery, too ... see you again this week?  Hope so! 

I also hope to be done with this unpacking business so I can swing by your blogs for a real visit!  Thanks for your patience!

Gorgeous take on the sketch, Michele! I love how the purple pops with the fog gray background so much...my goodness, what doesn't work with gray, right? Loving your crisp, clean layout, too...it's so pretty!
