Wit or wit-out


Hi Everyone! What a cold and dark Saturday morning. It is just a taste of what is to come. But the positive spin is that cold mornings make you happy to be inside and hunkered down in my studio with some soft music and a cup of tea ready to create with soft fall colors. Oranges, rust, saffrons and browns.

This month at House of Cards we are challenge you to a fun sketch.


I had to go with  Thanksgiving theme, plus it gave me the opportunity to use my new "songbirds" set from Papertrey Ink. I love anything with birds on it, so naturally it was the first set I grabbed for this challenge.

Of course, because I have been so busy with school and work, I didn't get photograph till this morning, when it was kinda dark still. Sooooo we have two photos and as they say at Pat's- "one wit and one wit-out" light that is- not cheese! The top photo has the flash off. the one below has the flash on. Sometimes I like the flash, it reminds me of family photographs from years ago.


Please join us this month for the sketch challenge at House of Cards and check back in each week to see what each style has to offer starting with the CAS team on Monday.

Have a great evening.
