I love the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week. Lately, I find working with a sketch is helpful. My cards seem to come together faster, and with less stress. Yes, I said stress! Tell me you've all experienced that feeling? You're trying to put together a card/project to post. The dog is barking, the timer just went off on the dryer, your daughter is wanting you to look over her school project, the dishes are still sitting in the sink from dinner, then your other daughter (who's away at college) is blowing up your phone with text messages! Secretly, you think "thank goodness my husband is working late tonight! Yes, sometimes there's stress.
Now I know why I've been using more sketches lately!
If you are looking for some sketches to try, Pinterest is a great source. Also, in a previous post, I listed some of my favorite sketch sites. You can find that post here.
