I can hardly believe that we're at Sketch #52 at Freshly Made Sketches. It seems like yesterday that Lesley was putting together her ideas for the challenge and assembling a top-notch design team. Some days I still can't quite believe that she asked me to be a part of this challenge. Every week I have the pleasure and the honor of working with such a talented bunch of ladies who, week after week, give me so much inspiration. And I hope that when we all get together to stamp in this virtual world we live in, that we inspire you, our faithful challenge companions, just a wee bit too!
Now on to our fabulous sketch this week. Except there is no sketch this week. At least not in the traditional sense. For our anniversary we are challenging you to choose any one of our past sketches (which you will find here) and make a card to help us celebrate this milestone. I chose Sketch #32, which was designed by Linda Callahan.
Now, if you are a new visitor (a hearty welcome if you are) and you poke around a bit, you will find that I am a bit of a fan of using non-traditional colors for otherwise traditional holiday cards. For this Halloween card I used the colors at The Paper Players. I knew right away when I saw that color challenge that I wanted to participate, but it wasn't until I started to make my card for this challenge that I realized these colors would be perfect for a Halloween card using my favorite skull. And I think I out-did myself in the non-traditional sense because my Baja Breeze DSP is from Urban Oasis and is actually printed with one of the big roses from Fifth Avenue Floral. If you don't look too closely, I think they sort of resemble squiggly lines. Scary squiggly lines, that is.
I sure hope you can join us this week to celebrate our anniversary. Our design team has knocked it out of the park this week, so be sure to stop on by Freshly Made Sketches and check out their cards! We've even got Linda Callahan and Rita Wright back this week! Woo hoo!
