MMSC43 Dancer Shannon Floral Card

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Ok, it's March.  It is time for Spring.  The days are getting longer...daylight saving's time is right around the corner, and warmer days ahead.  Watch out snow.....your days are numbered : )

Ahhh, so now that I have gotten that off my chest.  Who's up for the sketch challenge this week?  It's a good one.  Really fun to work. 

My image this week is Shannon and the Dance by our weekly MMSC sponsor: Sunshine and Giggles

I hope that I have inspired you to create along with us this week with this fun sketch.  Thanks for dropping by to sit a spell with me.  Please come back again soon, and have a wonderful day.
