Happy 70th Joan Marie!!!

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge #105 - Sketch

It's another terrific Tuesday and time for another fun Sassy Cheryl's Challenge!
Our super talented DT member Jackie is our hostess this week and has provided us with a great sketch.

I made this card for my Mother in Law's 70th Birthday. The whole Family on my Hubby's side actually got together and we had such a wonderful day. It is so hard for everyone to be in the same place at the same time. There was great food, yummy cake and lots of laughs. Such a blessing!

I just loooove Cheryl's new cutie Callie! When I first saw her I knew she was destined to have red hair.
So, I did some research and some practicing and I have colored my VERY FIRST red head.  I like it so I will definitely be trying it again. I am going to practice on black next. We will see how that goes. 

Okay guys, take a copy of this sketch to your crafty table and get busy! It's too much fun not to join in.
