Friday Sketchers - Sketch 37 Sponsored by Simon Says Stamp

Hello...and a very happy Friday to you all. I'm Carole from England and I am the host of this weeks sketch. Thanks to everyone that tried Bea's sketch, wow, you are one talented group of ladies, your cards just get more amazing each week and it's such a joy to see so many different takes on our sketches. Now, my sketch is another easy one I'm afraid! I don't do difficult...I hope you have fun with it...please just follow the basic layout and add as many embellishments as you wish and wherever you like...and, of course, just place the sentiment where it best suits your image...which is actually inside the card in my case!

Simon Says Stamp is kindly sponsoring Friday Sketchers this week with a $50 gift certificate to spend in their store - http://www.simonsaysstamp.com/

I think you'll agree, that's a wonderful prize for one lucky stamper...thanks Heidi!
