Sketch Challenges

Hi - I have two cards today that are based on sketch challenges. 

The first one uses Freshly Made Sketches #58.  One of the additional challenges playing along with Freshly Made Sketches is that they ask that you keep your cards "clean lined and fresh".  I try not to ink edges when I play along with this one too.  It's a great challenge blog and you can find them here.

 My first card uses a SWEET stamp  from Stampendous called Little Angels.  :)  This card also goes along with the Operation Write Home Midweek Throwdown, celebrate friendship.  I  used paper from my stash.  :)

My second card is based on the Operation Write Home sketch #143.  This is a really fun sketch.  At first I was intimidated by it, but as I went along I like it more and more.  I think I will be using this one again too.


Quote for the day:  "Be the person your dog thinks you are."  :)

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!

When I first saw the sketch, I saw a snow globe - and that's what I see in your card - and yet I don't. It's great because the kids don't look trapped!! Love it!! Your second card is very bright and cheerful. Just the right note. You've gotten yourself a new follower!!

These are fabulous! I love what you've done with sketch #143, I agree it's a little intimidating so thanks for the inspiration :)

Jeannette, These are tow beautiful cards.The image on your friend card is just so darn precious and you did such a lovely job showcasing it. The sketch card is just striking. I love the blue and orange together. Your little piece of twine is a great added touch.
