  7. All amazing, incredibly detailed cards! Love how one simple sketch can launch so much creativity!! I have to know, though, truly - looking at these cards, detail after little detail, creative touch after creative touch...how long does it take any/all of you to make a card like that? I feel like I take a long time now, and my cards are nowhere near your league! Thanks for all the wonderful inspiration!!

  40. Here is mine for this week: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/1099080?cat=500&ppuser=156271.

    I tweaked the sketch a little bit and then I really challenged myself. I essentially let my daughter pick the color scheme as the card is a thank you card for our daycare provider. I think that will be the last time I do that!

    Thanks!
