We're Praying for You

It's the end of the month and that means it's the final sketch for this month's Viva La Verve Sketch Challenge.    This sketch was complicated so I moved a couple of things around.  Switched the bow to the other side and left off one of the squares. I let the papers do the talking for this card :)  They are all Lily Bee Design.  I love this paper pack....thankfully I still have some left.  Added a quick sentiment from my Verve set.
As promised, I have a few more pictures from Thanksgiving weekend.  You might remember "the lift" conversation from this post.  Well, he has to practice?!  And his cousin, Erin, was game. She's our little family gymnast. She had just finished showing us her beam routine and then I asked for Ryan to try the lift with her. I love her pointed toes in the photos!

Ready...
 Set...
 Go...
First try = success!

Beautiful paper choices, Lynn. The sentiment banner really draws your eye to the message, but the focus is on the pretty patterns. Love it!

That sketch is wonderful and I love what you've created with it, Lynn - gorgeous card!

Love the photos! From one gymnast to another, tell Erin, "Perfect form!" So good to know that Ryan is getting the lift down right! You must be so excited for the performance! :)

I agree great papers! They really add a wow factor to the card. While I haven't been creating much I always love checking out what you have come up with.

Love the red and turquoise and how you made such a busy sketch work with your fabulous CAS style.
Go Ryan! Dancing with the Stars will be the next stop or maybe Glee! ;)
