As I was hopping around my favorite idea sites this cold, blustery winter night I came upon a contest at Page Maps. You can check out their blog at http://www.pagemaps.blogspot.com/
There is a scrapbook page contest and card sketch contest. This card sketch motivated me to go to my studio and create something new. It was fun to pull out some springy papers from American Crafts. I used the Dear Lizzy "Enchanted Line". Although my picture could almost pass for a Christmas card. My daughter took my good camera back to school for some final art projects so I didn't get a very good shot. The colors are off, but the best I could do tonight. I love to get ideas from Page Maps. Every month they feature card and page layout sketches. I can always get my mojo workin' after a visit there.
