Card sketch Jan #3

Wednesday, January 16, 2008

Happy Wednesday!!! Thanks for all the well wishes yesterday, yes it was hard keeping that secret in!!! I'm still going through emails so bear with me whilst I try and get on top of things. Understandably I've had other things on my mind the last couple of weeks *wink*. Ok so here is todays sketch, with the free digital template available in my store, don't forget to check out my other templates in there too!

Here is my version of the sketch, I flipped it. Again using the dreamstreet papers for this months manufacturer challenge. Loving the mileage I am getting from these papers. And BIG THANKS to the Dreamstreet girls who came to the chat last night at Treasures to Scrap!

Supplies: Papers by Dreamstreet; stamp: Fiskars; Ink: StaZon/around the block;

Yup still in the inking, stamping and sanding phase. Which is good, but seriously I need to get on a 'new' phase. My around the block distresser tool has never seen so much action!

Ok onto the sketch girls cards! Lots of inspiration this week, so much so that I can't go through them all individually!!! I'd be here all day and my power has flicked off twice already this morning (high winds here today). So sit back, scroll down, enjoy the lovely cards and get inspired to create!
