Happy Saturday!!  It has been a while since I posted since our family had been sick with the flu, my ability to craft was hindered by pulling a muscle in my shoulder, and my computer crashed AGAIN.  Grrr!  Looks like I will have to take the computer in since I think Windows has been deleted somehow.  While computers are a necessary evil the expense is killing me!!! I am popping in to share this week's Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs.

This week's challenge: 
is a sketch!!!
