A House of Cards

Thursday, March 5, 2009

Do you like a challenge?

Can you believe it is March already? Where does the time go? I have no idea. I wish it would slow down a little though. I don't have a whole lot to share this week. I've been cutting back lately. I guess if I can't slow down everything around me, I can slow myself down and try to enjoy everything in my world a little bit more. Do a few things just for me. ;)

One of the things I do for myself is make a card each week for the Sketch This blog. I love designing with Janelle's sketches. It is something fun I do because I want to. And I get to use any and all products... no limitations or restrictions.

Here are my Sketch This cards from the last two weeks.

Working with sketches takes all of the hard work out of creating leaving just the fun stuff... mixing and matching products. Nothing better than putting together different colors and textures. Love it! :)

So, how about a little challenge?

Make a card using one of Janelle's sketches over at the Sketch This blog. Any one... it doesn't matter which. Mix and match your products... how about a minimum of 5 different manufacturers? And just for me, make it colorful with lots of texture. No flat cards. ;)

All you need to do is link up your creation in the comment section and let me know which sketch you used. (Link them up over at the Sketch This blog too. We all love to see your creations using the sketches!) I will send out a little prize to one lucky person for playing along. How about we give everyone a little time... about two weeks, because I know everyone is so busy nowadays.

Hope you all can take a little time and play along. Thanks for stopping by! :)
