ASeason of Firsts

Good Morning All:

What a season! I began The Peddler's Gallery blog just a couple of months ago and today I am excited to say I am participating in Waltzingmouse's first sketch. If you've never been, you should definitely travel over to see Claire and her wonderful design team. Hopefully, this will be the first of many to come. They're just eight hours away by plane or a click away by mouse. Waltzingmouse has fabulous stamps, beautiful stamps, and lots of creative ideas. Not only is this Waltzingmouse's first sketch challenge, this is the first sketch I have ever participated in--how apropos. If you never expeienced it, you'll love it and if you have, then you know what I mean. The card I submitted has more of a masculine theme. This card is for one of my best friends that will celebrate his birthday this month. Our relation stems back to high school. You know those are some of the best friends in life you will ever have. He knew me before I knew myself and he often reminds me of that too. :)  We have so many memories to reflex on and it appears as though each one can bring a smile to my face instantly. I have truely treasure our times together. I hope you like my sketch and that it may have inspired you in some way.

Thanks for taking time to stop by The Peddler's Gallery and come back real soon.
