Challenge #344

Good morning!  I hope you are ready for some card making.  It is getting close to Halloween so I am offering a prize for this challenge .  Just create your coolest Halloween card (inspired by our sketch) and post it ON BOTH this page and our Facebook page to be eligible to win.  We will have a random drawing on October 30th and all cards which show up on both sites will be entered.  I will announce the winner on our Facebook page on October 31st.

Now for the sketch (another thanks to Kaylin):
Optional theme(s): Autumn and Halloween

And here are the cards from the ladies on our team:





Great cards, team!  Very innovative use of the sketch.  Now it is up to our viewers to come up with interesting cards of their own.  And I am certain we will see some really cool entries.
Thanks in advance for playing along, everyone.  You have until October 30th to join in the fun.  Happy creating!
(And remember our contest)
See you later!

Challenge #342

Good morning and happy Tuesday!  
Before I  go on, I would like to thank the ladies on our design team.  They are not only talented but extremely dedicated to this site.  They do not hesitate to do anything they can to keep this blog running smoothly (especially when I fall behind) and I am so very grateful to them.  Thank you, team, and big hugs to you!

Now for this week's sketch....it is a very complex one with several elements involved.  Great to test the creativity (and use up scraps of paper).

The optional technique is "Mixing Patterns".

And here are the cards from the ladies on the team.  They are simply amazing!





Wow!  These are all amazing cards!  Now, viewers, what can you come up with?  I cannot wait to see.  Remember, you have two weeks to play along and you can enter here or on our Facebook page.  Happy card making!

And thank you to Kaylin for the amazing sketch!
