With Sympathy

Hey hey friend!  Let me tell you a little story...There once was a girl named Lindsay, who loved to craft and craft and when she awoke one morning realized she didn't have any mojo left!  Um, that was me for the entire holiday weekend up to yesterday.  My poor hubby had to hear me whinning about how I can't seem to put paper and ink together.  So, I asked myself what do you do when your creative brain shuts down?  You play with a sketch.  AHhhhh.  Ohhhhh.  That's better.  The moral of the story?  Sketches are good play with them!  Hee hee.  I used CardPatterns newest sketch for this card and got down with my vintage-y self.  Thanks for humoring me friend.  Have a good one!
