Today is a very calm day. I wonder if a storm is headed our way.
So, it was a perfect day for ham and beans and time in the crafty 
room.. So for my challenge card this week I have used an image from
Patty's Creations called Christmas Lamp Post..

We had a sketch to follow this time. I must say, I love using sketches
So here is what it looks like.

My corners are from Spellbinders, Paper is from my stash and I'm sure it
is DCWV..Love all there papers.

So hope you will join us this week with your own sketch card
for  our challenge at Perfect Sentimetns

Happy Scrappin.
