Good Morning, Ink-A-Paloozers!
Join me for a fun SKETCH challenge. This is IAP7!
I pored over my copy of "The Joy of Cardmaking~Collector's Edition," and came up with a great sketch for inspiration.
This is one of Wendy Johnson's sketches, and if you have this book, it is recipe #13.
Use this sketch, which I have attached here, to create your card, or cards. You can play as many times as you want.
I have included a picture of a card I made with this sketch also.
The prize will be a clear set of Inkadinkadoo stamps....plus some other goodies.

I have a winner!
I had numbered each participant's name as they posted their cards.
I asked DH to pick a number 1-17.
He chose number 14, and that's HEATHERJ!!!
So, Heather, Congratulations, and thank you all for playing with my challenge!
I'll be sending out the prize this week. I just want to gather a few more little things.

This is actually IAP7, but I seem to be typing challenged today also~
Can someone fix my title!

04-24-2009, 08:35 AM
Joannie post a pic in the gallery if your having probs.... thats all i can suggest lol sorry
Thanks, Sue,
I figured it out, but had to post it and then edit it to get the attachments to work!
Go figure!

This is great, love your sample. I'm sketch challenged, so this one will get me to stretch a bit. To change your title, hit edit, and then hit go advanced. You'll be able to edit there.

All fixed!
I don't feel quite so dunderheaded now!

04-24-2009, 09:38 AM
I only know because I did the same thing last night. LOL

04-24-2009, 08:16 PM
Hi Joanie! I love sketch challenges and will be sure to try yours! And just so you know...I didn't know about clicking "Advanced" to edit my title either. LOL :)

04-24-2009, 08:22 PM
what a great sketch!! I love your pretty flower card! my brain is spinning with an idea already!

04-25-2009, 05:35 AM
I love your challenge and I have some pretty flowers just jumping out of the box to be put on a card.

As a side note, I didn't know about the advanced button til last night either. I had to add my pic. So we all learned about the advanced button :):)

Sketch challenges are my favorite and this one was especially FUN! Thanks for hosting Joanie!

Here is my card... (http://stamp-shack.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=21843)

I am a card sketch junkie, I do at least 3 or more sketch challenges a week. So I had to do this one. Here is my card:

04-26-2009, 10:36 AM
I must admit Joanie that this is the very first time I have used a sketch, but I did find it very useful. Perhaps I need to look for that book you have.
What a great prize you are offering, everyone will want to win I am sure, including me.
Here is my entry, thanks for hosting.

I just had to participate in a couple of the challenges before I leave for England. This card actually combines two challenges: the sketch challenge and the punches challenge. ED: This card is not to be considered as an entry for the sketch challenge. I didn't read the guidelines first so I had to choose one challenge for this card. Because of the train punch, I opted for the 'other' challenge, but if I have time, I'll do another for the sketch challenge. I still had fun, even though I goofed up!

Take a look at the birthday card for my grandson, James, who will be 1 year old on May 1st.


Thanks to both Joanie and Joan, I needed the kick to get going again.

Here's mine. I've had this Cool Cat paper for years and never used it before.
The stamp is one I bought from a Shackie quite recently ( Got Cats) and it was a good match.

I am bumping this up as it seems to have fallen off the message board!
How are the gals supposed to do this challenge if they don't see it????

04-28-2009, 04:07 PM
This one was fun!!! Here is the card I made! http://stamp-shack.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=21994

Hmmm, where's the sketch? I can see the card in the first post, but not a sketch. :huh:

It's very light...should have gone over it with a heavier line, but it's just to the left of my example card.
Give it a try!
If you click on it, it shows up bigger and easier to see.

i am not used to using a sketch, but after trying this one I would use one again. Here is the link to my take on the sketch.http://stamp-shack.com/photopost/data/634/trees_091_Small_.jpg

WHEW! I managed to get the last challenge sketch done this morning! What a FUN week, and it's great to have a stash of new cards! Nice, simple sketch, Joanie, thanks. Here's my card. (http://stamp-shack.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=22036&limit=recent)

Loved this sketch!

I made this card this morning to give to Logan. He had his spring concert and he did such a good job singing and dancing, he is SUCH a showoff!!!

He opened it after the program and he loved it. Thanks for motivating me to make something, I loved seeing the look on his face!


05-03-2009, 07:43 AM

Thanks for a great challenge, Joanie. I always shy away from sketch challenges, my brain just doesn't work that way. Here's my entry. (http://stamp-shack.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=22174)
