Sketch #8

Here's sketch #8.  This one I am finding a bit challenging!  Hope you will join me in creating a card, layout, altered item, whatever makes you happy!, this week.  I will take down this sketch and put up another in one week, happy crafting!

My take on Sketch #7

Feeling reeeaaally crafty today, thanks to Paper Crafts Magazine, just received the most recent issue last night, and I have a card published in the magazine, after three long years of not crafting much at all! 

Here's my take on Sketch #7, Archivers cardstock, Basic Grey patterned paper (blue), Bo-Bunny patterned paper (alpha print), and Crate Paper Restoration Collection (red).  Also, used SRM stickers (LOVE them!), from the Express Yourself Collection, #42021, Birthday.  (birthday sticker and two star stickers)  Ribbon from the Ribbon Collection, used my new Spellbinders (yay!) tag die, and some sparkly "gems". 

Thanks for looking, and thanks to the wonderful ladies who already participated on this sketch.  (it's not too late to join in!  :-)

I am putting up a new sketch in a bit.  It will stay up til this time next week, so please join me in being crafty!

Karen Phelan Yarko's lovely card for Sketch#7!

What a great card!  I always seem to have a shortage of cards suitable for graduates.  Karen's "journey" card is so perfect, and with graduation season upcoming, I wish I had a whole box of them!  Karen, such a lovely card, thanks sooo much for doing the challenge!  I always adore your cards, and can't wait to see more of them!  A new sketch goes up tomorrow, I'd better get a move on and get my card loaded!  Thanks so much to everyone participating in the challenge!

I LOVE Christine Evans' card creation for Sketch 7! Wow, she's fast!!

I am such a sucker for squared cards and rounded corners!  This is such a soft, lovely and feminine card!  I can almost "feel" the lace through the picture.  The little girls are adorable.  That patterned paper is so perfect with the tone of the card!  THANKS Christine for sharing your wonderful card with us!  You are inspiring me to get crafty today, and that wasn't at all in my plans!  Please continue doing the sketches, love to see your work!  Anyone else want to join the fun?  :-)

Sketch #7

Wow, the weeks are really flying by!  I can't believe I am on sketch 7 already!  I have to say these sketches are certainly helping my creativity in the new year!  Along with dear, inspiring crafty friends, who create artwork and share it with me!  And wonderful products such as SRM Stickers, that keep my mojo for creating flowing!  So without further delay, here's handmade sketch #7.  I hope you will join me in creating a card, layout, etc...from the sketch.  Remember, the sketch is just a guide, do what you like and what feels comfortable to you.  This one is super simple, I am thinking ribbon running horizontally and vertically, or strips of patterned paper in the same format, a sentiment in the lower right corner, I love circular shapes so I am thinking of adding one to the sketch, or maybe using my NEW Spellbinders machine to add a shape!!   I will put up another sketch in one week.  Please join me in creating this week!
