Challenge # 421 - Let's Get Sketchy

Happy Wednesday, all!  We've got something a little different for you this week.  We've got a sketch!  And here it is....


Now, I'm gonna tell you a little secret.....I'm not the least bit upset when people take liberties with sketches.  I've always thought that sketches should be the jumping point for inspiration, not a map of exactly how a card should be made.  So, feel free to add embellishments and a sentiment, like the sketch says.  Not feeling circle-y? Use a different shape!  Want to be a rebel and put the rectangle ON TOP of the circle?  Got for it!  Turn it 90ยบ?  Yeppers!  Not the adventurous type and want to make your card EXACTLY like the sketch, of course that works too.  Just as long as we can see the original sketch somewhere in your creation, it's all good.

And remember, you can do a layout or tag or bookmark or altered project - any paper craft is in!

So, this is what I did.....


I did stick fairly close to the sketch, but it was my sketch, after all, might have seemed weird if I didn't.  ;-)

If you'd like more inspiration be sure to check out the wonderful projects the Girlfriends have created. Then, head back here and link up.

Can't wait to see what you create!

Top Picks Challenge #420 ~ Penguins and Polar Bears

Hi there.  Wow....it was a hard choice this week.  Your penguin and polar bear creations were all amazing and I enjoyed visiting each and every one of you.  So I chose one penguin card and one polar bear card that really stood out to me:

And I couldn't help but add this as one of my top picks because we obviously have the same taste in stamps :)

Challenge #419 Harvest Time

Hi there!
We have a new challenge this week - Harvest Time! We are finally getting some chilly weather around here.  We will be traveling to Indiana to share Thanksgiving with my family. I am so excited but I'm seeing the weather and it's going to be COLD!  I love the autumn season, and so for this week, I want to see items related to fall.  You can use a turkey, pumpkin, leaves, etc.  You get the idea!  Here's my creation.

The girlfriends have come up with some great inspiration.  You can link up your project below.


Featured "Owl About Me" Projects (Challenge #418)

Thanks so much to all who joined in for last week's "Owl About Me" challenge. It was fun to see all the owl and bird stamps and supplies - although I must admit I ended up with a bit of stamp envy!

Here are a few projects that caught my eye.












Congratulations, ladies!! Please grab your badge from the sidebar and join us again this week for another challenge!

Challenge #418 - Owl About Me

Hello friends! It's Kate here and it's my turn to host this week's challenge. I've chosen the theme "Owl about me" - use owls (or birds) on your projects.


Earlier this year (or perhaps even last year!) I received a free owl die in a carding magazine. One of the reasons I chose the theme for this challenge is so I would get out the die and actually use it!

Now it's your turn! Pull out your owl/bird stamps, dies, sentiments, decals and join us for this week's challenge. I can't wait to see what you create!
