A Sketchy Color Throwdown


This week Tammy asked us to create a card using Old Olive, Melon Mambo, and So Saffron for the CTD76 challenge. This card also follows the SC264 sketch challenge over on SCS. I just love these colors and the sketch, so combining the challenges was a perfect combination.
The latest news about my BIL wasn't good. He had a 95% blockage in one carotid artery, so they opened that one but never operated on the 2nd one. They said he'll have some level of brain damage, but the extent won't be known for some time. They also don't know if he'll regain use of his left hand which will be difficult because he loves playing his guitar. Some times life just isn't fair, but we'll be keeping him in our thoughts and prayers and hopefully he's going to recover enough to enjoy life once again. Thanks for your well wishes and prayers, much appreciated.
Have a wonderful Wednesday and enjoy every minute of your day :)
