I made one more card using my Rainy Day Sketch for November.

One of the best things about this sketch is it allows for three different designer papers to be used.  Gotta love that!  The designer paper used here is all from Basic Grey’s “Lucille” collection, and it is GORGEOUS!!  A brand new 6×6 pad will be given to a randomly drawn winner chosen from those who participate in the SKETCH CHALLENGE FOUND HERE.  There are still a few days left to play along.

Oh and I also love feathers!  They are so fluffy and fun.

Thanks for dropping by today.  Happy Crafting!

It’s time for November’s Rainy Day Sketch Challenge!  Here is this month’s sketch.  It was inspired by this darling card over at Diane Zachman’s blog, “Paper Cookies.”

I made a couple of cards, too, to show the sketch in action.  lol

The first card shows the sketch rotated 180 degrees.

Love CAS designs, and I love the simplicity of this heart and sentiment with it’s sweet little button.

The second card shows the sketch with an orientation like the drawing.

I also love the vintage look with lace and pearls and a crocheted doily flower.  A little flourish peeks out from behind the designer papers.

To make the pennant shaped panel, I cut three coordinating pieces of designer paper and lined them up side by side with the pattern side face down.  The center of the middle strip was marked.  Taking a square piece of cardstock, I placed it at the bottom of the strips with one of the corner points placed on the center mark high enough that the outside bottom corners of the strips were also covered by the square.

I marked the “V” and cut.

The blog candy this month is a brand new 6×6 pad of Basic Grey’s “Lucille” designer paper.  It is one of the most beautiful selection of papers I have ever seen!  All of the designer paper used on both of my cards are from this collection.  It will be sent to a randomly drawn winner from those who play along in the challenge.

It’s the 15th of the month which means its time for another Rainy Day Sketch Challenge!  I’m having so much fun with these.  So here is the sketch.

And here is my take on the sketch.

Isn’t that the cutest little image.  It is part of one of Stampin’ Up’s newest sets called “Hoop La La.”  And I couldn’t wait to play with this new embossing folder with coordinating piercing template and border punch, too.

So for this month’s sketch, providing there are some challenge takers, I have a second brand new “Hoop La La” set to give away!

The Rainy Day Sketch Challenge last month was SO FUN!  I was excited that there were actually some takers!  Woohoo!!  So… I’ve made another sketch to play with for this month.

Here is my take on the sketch.

I love this silhouetted “Cattail Birds” image from Memory Box.

So for some blog candy, providing there are some challenge takers, this sweet image along with a Memory Box “Orchard Bird Combo” stamp will be given to the winner.  Notice the little flower image on the side of the wood mount in addition to the main image on the “Orchard Bird Combo” stamp.  This creates so many great possibilities and variations with just a single stamp.

If you do decide to play along, leave a link to your creation in the comments section.  Provided there are some entries, a winner will be selected on July 1st giving you a little over 2 weeks to play.  Oh and please make sure that the link you leave goes to the specific card you are entering and not to your blog or gallery in general.  Hope you can find some time to play!

The Sketch Challenge is now closed.
