wk 49 at the JCBC Challenge, a sketch from Karin

Its week 49 at the Just Christmas and Birthday card Challenge. This has been scheduled and will be the last post this week. I love these Lili of the Valley images, as they are so great for quick cards. Some lovely friend brought me 3 of the new Lili of the Valley stamps launched at the NEC, i am looking forward to getting my hands on them and having a play. Although im not sure when in the future that will be.

This week we have a fabulous sketch from my lovely friend Karin. Thank you for such a great sketch to work with Karin.

Enjoy your week, you are all in my thoughts! hugs Linda x
