One Sketch 5 Ways! (Sort of)

Hello, and happy Saturday!

Several weeks ago, I picked up my first copy of Papercrafts Magazine's "Go To Sketches". I haven't used sketches much, except in individual challenges, but after reading this magazine cover to cover, again and again, the "Go-To Girls" - Terri, Maren, Kim H., Kim K., Betsy, and Jessica have changed my mind!

I proceeded to draw up a few sketches, and I find that they simplify things in measures of oodles! One of the sketches that I drew seemed absolutely perfect for a set of digi stamps that Paulette has over at Create with TLC. This set is called "In Sympathy", and has 5 (FIVE!!!) separate images for $2.50. Amazing!!! What a nice gift a set of cards from these images would make! If you haven't been to Create with TLC, hurry over and check out her store and her wonderful freebies.
I will enter this card here:

I will enter this card here:
Crafty Creations Challenges: Add shine, glitter, Stickles, etc. (Dots are frosted stickles)



I will enter this card here:
Cas-Tastic Challenges: Blue, Yellow & a Neutral





As all cards have patterned paper, I will enter this blog entry at: Just-add-ink (Just add patterned paper)
Thanks for stopping by! Hope that your weekend is peaceful and relaxing. We are still working on our kitchen and laundry room floors - ugh!

Blessings and hugs!

GREAT job! Create with TLC is the best! While the basics of the card stayed the same, they all look very different, yet they're all lovely.

All these cards are fantastic and I really appreciate the diversity in them for having used one sketch. I really like the softness of the yellow and blue card.
