Sketch Challenge

I'm beginning to like these sketch challenges more and more because it helps me create my cards. Sometimes I can whip up a card and I'm done and happy with it. But then other times, that creative block hits me, and it could take me a couple of hours just to make one card, that I'm happy with. I can't be the only one who experiences this. I've heard of writer's block but I seriously think there's such a thing as a creative block, ha-ha!

Anyhoo, Tracy's Happy Place has a monthly Happiness Giveaway Challenge. I wanted to take part in this challenge because it's a sketch challenge. What's more of a challenge for me is that the card has to be for a guy. It's all in perfect timing because my girlfriend's having a birthday party for her husband, so here's his birthday card and my submission for Tracy's challenge! For a personal touch, I added some beads. Thanks, Tracy for the challenge! Check out Tracy's site. I love last weeks music clip with Chris Daughtry! I bought his CD after seeing his clip from Tracy's site.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week!

I always have a creative block and challenges are a great way for me to actually make a card! I would be lost without sketches! LOL
