Sketch Saturday #473

Hello Everyone! Welcome to a new sketch challenge over at Sketch Saturday. Every Saturday a new sketch is posted and you have until Friday the following week to enter for a chance to win a prize from their terrific sponsors. We hope you’ll come play with us!

Today is Sketch #473, shown below. The sponsor this week is DigiStamp Boutique, which is a new sponsor for me. I am working with the Alvin Squirrel set. I picked the cute birthday image for this sketch.

Here is this weeks’ sketch:

And, here is my card with Alvin!

I wanted to pick a fairly vertical image so that I could split it over the two panels. This image worked fairly well for the project. I raised the yellow balloon off the main image with a second image printing and a couple of pop dots.

Sketch Saturday #467

Hello Everyone! Welcome to a new sketch challenge over at Sketch Saturday. Every Saturday a new sketch is posted and you have until Friday the following week to enter for a chance to win a prize from their terrific sponsors. We hope you’ll come play with us!

Today is sketch number #467 and here it is:

The sponsor this week is Fred She Said and I just adore this Emma in Her Cool Cap image. She comes with the “I Love Dad” short, or just plain, which makes her great for any occasion.

I had a bit of challenge with this sketch, succumbing to the three bears syndrome. I first printed Emma “too small”. Then when I reprinted, she was “too big”. I could have attempted “just right”, but by then I had spent time coloring her, loved the way she looked and didn’t want to do it over! So, the layout may be a bit squishy compared to the sketch….but I sure do love this card!!

Sketch Saturday #465

Hello Everyone! Welcome to a new sketch challenge over at Sketch Saturday. Every Saturday a new sketch is posted and you have until Friday the following week to enter for a chance to win a prize from their terrific sponsors. We hope you’ll come play with us!

Today we are posting sketch number #465 and here’s what it looks like!

Our sponsor this week is AMB Illustrations and I chose to work with this Rainy Day Ducks image.

For some reason, I had a bit of challenge coloring this one. I ended up doing two versions and this was my preferred one

Sketch Saturday #463

Welcome back with another challenge at Sketch Saturday!

Today’s sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps, one of my favorite digi artists and a fellow Canadian! There is a fantastic variety of quality digital images on this site, so go on and check them out.

So, here is our sketch for the week:

I decided to work with Kidz – Ice Cream. I thought this would make a great birthday card image and since I have a little girl, that’s exactly what I did with it. Her next birthday isn’t for quite awhile, but we’ve got pretty much a million birthday parties to attend now that she’s in school, so this will get used up quickly, I’m sure.

As you can see, I twisted the sketch a bit (I’m a rebel that way). I meant to turn it for this image, but placed my “bits” in the same corners – so, I guess you can say that I stretched the sketch instead. I think you can still tell that I used the sketch, so we’ll call that okay.

Like me, feel free to rotate the sketch for your creation. Just as long as we can tell you were inspired by our Sketch! Get your fabulous creation linked up prior to the deadline on Friday (check the challenge page for the time in your zone) and be entered for a chance to win a prize from Bugaboo Stamps.

I’ll see you in two weeks with another Sketch Saturday challenge. Don’t forget, they play every week.

Sketch Saturday #461

Hello Everyone! Welcome to a new sketch challenge over at Sketch Saturday. Every Saturday a new sketch is posted and you have until Friday the following week to enter for a chance to win a prize from their terrific sponsors. We hope you’ll come play with us!

Today we are posting sketch number #461. But, the challenge is to use any previous sketch from #215 to #460.  The archives can be found on the blog on this page. There are so many great sketches to choose!

I decided to work with sketch #248. Our sponsor this week is Lemon Shortbread, who has pretty much the most adorable stamps ever. I might be saying that because I found this Rainy Days Girl with Umbrella in the inventory and umbrellas tend to make my heart sing…as does this adorable card!
