Now this week we are sponsored by the wonderful

and this weeks challenge is a Sketch!!!

I know, I know, "ohhhhhhhhh nooooo not a sketch" I hear you cry. No worries though, I tried to keep it fairly  simple and if you are stuck for ideas, my fantastic design team have been hard working to show you all some examples. Take a look for some newfound inspiration.


Hi there!  I have used Steph's fab sketch to make my lovely friend Michelle's birthday card!  The image is from Lili of the Valley, and coloured in with Flexmarkers.  The pale colours of the Flexmarkers are ideal for these cute images.  The image has been layered onto a cotton doiley from my crafty friend Sarah, and then onto Rose Red textured cardstock from Stampin' Up! .  I have used some Springtime Vintage DSP from Stampin' Up! to compliment the tiny flowers on the image, then added three handmade mulberry paper roses from Wild Orchid Crafts and a greeting from Craftwork Cards.  The card base is Pear Pizzazz, also from Stampin' Up!.  I hope you have plenty of fun creating your masterpieces this week :).

Woohooooo!! This is my first Christmas card of the year. I made quite a fairly simple sketch as I found most sketch challenges to be quite complicated. I used a Christmas Winnie digi by our fabbie sponsor Willow Designs. I used the card and papers from my own stash. Winnie was coloured in with Promarkers and I added green gems to finish.

I'm not usually a huge fan of sketch challenges, but Steph came up with a good one here! It's a lovely layout! I printed the digi image and the patterned paper from the Double Sprinkle of Kraft Cd Rom. I coloured the image with Pro Markers. The glitter card is from C&C and so is the pearlised swirly card.

For my card this week I used one of my digi's, Holly In Jeans. The image was coloured in using the trusty old Promarkers. The DP's were all free with the latest issue of Simply Homemade mag. The Polka Dot Buttons are from Papermania and the greeting is from my stash. This was such a fab sketch to work with, I'll definately be using this again on my cards, thanks for a fab sketch Steph.

For my card I used one of the digis from our fabulous sponsor! I was excited to finally get my first Christmas card done. Of course this cutie was colored up with copics.  The top of his stocking got a bit of liquid applique for some dimension.  And the gorgeous papers are from Authentique called journey.  The pearls are from Viva Decor liquid pearls in gray and the tag and sentiment are from my stash.  Thanks for stopping by today, can't wait to see your amazing designs and good luck!

Please leave your projects with Mr.Linky below and good luck!!
Happy Crafting!!
