Challenge # 11 - Sketch Challenge

It is time for another sketch challenge!! Woo Hoo!

This is Kelley... and I am the hostess for this challenge.

The sketch is shown above and here is the inspiration picture....

This is a little peek inside my (messy) craft room. Courtney did an excellent job making the sketch out of my inspiration picture and it was her idea to add the fun scallop at the bottom. I didn't even see that... my brain is so clean and simple that I just saw the 3 circles. Thanks Courtney for making the actual sketch!

Here are the samples from the DT:


Tanis (Guest Designer):

Awesome cards ladies!! :) You guys rock!

Now for the details... create a card or scrapbook layout based on this sketch. You can upload a direct link to your card at the bottom of this post using Mr. Linky. Add it before midnight CST on Wednesday, March 24th and you could be entered to win a fab prize. We will post the winner here on Friday the 26th.

Speaking of a fab prize... this months challenge sponsor is our very own Kelly Marie and Lawn Fawn. Kelly is giving away one of her brand spankin new stamp sets called Petite Florals! Thanks Kelly!!

So... get to crafting if you want a chance to win this awesome set!

We are blown away each and every challenge with the awesome eye candy that you guys provide so... keep it up! :) It gets harder and harder to narrow down our favorites! You guys are awesome!!

Don't forget that when you post your card or layout on your blog.... you can grab the sketch and post it as well! This lets others know what the sketch is so maybe they will come on over and play with us as well!

One more thing before I sign off (those of you who know me... know that I am long winded)!! :)

This is going to be my last challenge as a design team member! I started talking to Courtney several weeks ago as things were stirring in my heart about time/commitments/being a mother to a toddler, etc... ! So... I am letting this go! It will be hard because I have had a great time! These women I have been working with are some of the most genuine people around!! I am honored to call them my friends! I know that part is not going to change so... it's all good! :)

Courtney... Thank you for asking me to come along on this journey with you! It has been a great experience and one that I am so thankful to have had! Love ya girl! :)

Now... all of you reading this.... go make something! :) And then come back here and post it! :)

Peace and Love!! :)
