I have been sitting here looking at the cards I have created this week and all I can say is that there is no connectivity between any of them, thus the title hodge-podge/mish-mash.  Not sure I like any of them, however it was interesting to go outside my comfort zone and create with colors and styles that are not typically in my zone. 

Asian Flair Card

Belli Challange  Something with the letter G...  I used Gold embossing poweder

They are all great but of course the SSW card is the best! On top of that it has dragonflies, so it's just gorgeous in my book! Great job! Thanks so much for joining us this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

Peace & Luv,

All of my cards look a little different but I like that I am not locked into one style and you look like that is your niche also. I love the different looks of all of your cards and they are all so beautiful and unique. Love what you did with the sketch this week at SSW and so happy to have you join us.
