City Crafter has a great challenge this week for their 2nd anniversary !
....." go through challenge #1 to #103, pick a project created by our current DT and case it! "

Well, this is an easy task for me.  Not only have I played in this challenge from its beginning, I am a big fan of their DT !  But, since I had to narrow it down, I narrowed it to Ros, since she is kinda on my wave length.

And her back yard looks like mine does ...

Here is the Challenge I chose ...
Ros's first sketch !
the date was 1/11/11  !!
my dear teamie & great friend at PCS, Tracy McDonald was the guest designer !
what could be more fun ???

 and Ros made this gorgeous card ...

and here is my copycat ....

I am kinda thinkin' I nailed it !!

Did I ?
or did it turn out like this ??

And yes, I did enter that challenge, and here is my card from January 2011

which I still like ...
