Freshly Made Sketches #323

My bloggy-friend Karren created this darling Sketch for challenge FMS323 ... she won't believe what was on my desk when the challenge post arrived in my inbox!

It all started by recreating my play room a few weeks ago ...


by looking for inspiration...


see that cool desk calendar?  Yes, I do keep the former months - and repurpose them!
 
Inside: ... for twice as many years!!!!



Thanks, Karren ... I'll sync minds with you any day!

The calendar squares are almost like using a paint strip, Michele, and it filled in the window perfectly. I love the color and how you did the sentiment - outside and in.
