Hello...and a very happy Friday to you all. I'm Claudia and you can find me during the week on my blog Pretty Pressings. Thank you for visiting this week the Friday Sketcher blog for your inspiration. Please 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. I saw that 7Kids College Fund has wonderful stamps and how nice they all work with circular shapes, so based on that i came up with the sketch. For this week we have this cute stamp from Stampavie's LeLo Design "Little Susie" for one of you.

Here is a little more about 7 KIDS COLLEGE FUND

I'm sorry ladies but I've never tried hyperlinking my cards. I've always wanted to know but I'm just not sure how to do that. If someone can explain it step by step how you link this way I'd be more then happy to do so. Just email me the instructions.
