Sketch #3 on just x-mas and b-day cards challenge

I've been a very bad blogger the last few weeks. There are so many things that need my attention right now. A day goes by so very fast. I'm short several hours a day.
This week the girls are free from school, so again not much time for crafting and blogging.
I hope the weather stays this way (sun and about 16C) so they can play outside together with their friends and mayby we could do some crafting together. Last Friday we went to our local craftshop and the girls have picked some lovely papers and embellishments to make some cards.
And now for this weeks sketch on just x-mas and b-day cards challenge.
this weeks sketch is made by Linda, and it was a great sketch to work with. Great to mirror or turn it a quarter. This way you have to completely different cards.
Take a look at the cards I made for the blog.
