Freshly Made Sketches #90

Hello!  It's Wednesday already and time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  Linda Callahan knocks it outta the park with a really fun and versatile one!  I was looking for a sketch to use for a retirement card for a work colleague and when I saw Linda's sketch waiting in the wings, I knew it would be perfect for what I needed.  I had my card made and submitted way early - I love it when that happens!

I went with a camping theme on this card because the person I am making this for is going on a big camping trip with the family right after he retires.  And the Happy Campers collection from W R Memory Keepers is the perfect set of pretty papers to make a camping themed card.  And, of course, Linda's sketch made it so easy!

It's retirement season at work right now.  So I may need to make a few more of these!

Be sure to check out Linda's fab sketch:

And stop by Freshly Made Sketches and check out the wonderful creations from the Clean Team!  And please come and play.  I'd love to see your take on Linda's sketch!   

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!
