Card Sketch March #3

Wednesday, March 19, 2008

Happy Wednesday! Few comments on Friday asking when I sleep, lol! Yep I sleep! But I don't spend time on message boards etc like I used to so I have more time to CREATE! Plus Bob went snowboarding at the weekend and I got a TON of stuff done (the digital kits finished off!). This sketch was totally inspired by the St Patricks day card I blogged about on Monday. I opted for a circle because it fit better in the card. As usual you can find the basic template available free in my store for a limited time. Plus I have other templates available too!

Already I can see this is going to be a favorite of mine as I've made 3 cards with this design already! As you can see I chose to cut my card font and add the circle overlapping the edge. I use 2 circles, one for the inside too. Loving this one...

"friendship" card by Di Hickman
Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill; Papers: Best Creations; Ribbon: unknown, offray; Flower: Heidi Swapp; Button: Making Memories; rub-on: Heidi Grace;

Love the use of the doily on this for the circle embellishment! I have a yarn one somewhere I need to use! May have to dig that out! Thanks for the inspiration Kristin!

"love" card by Kristin Shulz

"with love" card by Linda Flinders

I had to chuckle at Wendy this week! She sent 3 versions of this card. Each time taking something off the card. I think that goes to prove that even the sketch girls second guess themselves sometimes! (ps: Wendy, I liked it better with the blue strip! lol)

Kelly gave a great option with her card, giving a positive and negative effect with the papers and cardstock. This could be a great design just in cardstock, with different colors, especially for a mens card! Ok gonna stop now before I have to go off and create! lol.

These are fabulous cards - great sketch to work from, so how could they not be?

I've been really remiss recently on doing the sketches/dares as I've had so much going on to steal my time away. I'm missing them like crazy and need to get back on track!
