Hello everyone, I hope you are having a fun-filled weekend with alot of creativity, and now more inspiration for you to fill your scrapbooks with or make new cards for your loved ones, friends and more.   I am your host today Lissa Marie, providing a layout sketch, and our Co-Host is Ellen at CardMonkey’s Paper Jungle, providing a card sketch for the girls to choose from which one they would like to do, or they can choose both.  I am very excited to see what they come up with, what they choose and how they choose to use it.

Here is the sketch I provided for them…

This is how interpreted mine.


I have chosen to do both since I am the host.. Here is the card sketch Ellen provided.


Now here is my take on the card


How fun is that, could can do many things with sketches. I love the challenge!

Well now for the goodies, I am giving away some digital works for one lucky winner.  A scrapbook layout, a fb timeline banner, business cards, or a  blog button, I am flexible of what your digital needs are.  It will be winners choice of what they would like me to do, I create it, send it to the winner and they can print it or use it as their own on their blog, whatever they want to do with it.  My own requirement to win my blog candy is to be a follower/subscriber through email or network blogs (on the sidebar) and to leave a comment, if you are a current subscriber  you will have to need to comment with the corresponding address you subscribed with.

In addition to that scrapbookstampsociety is our sponsor this month


They are giving away 3 sets of stamps to one lucky winner that comments on all blogs and it is your option to subscribe to all the blogs in the hop but to gain an extra entry you can subscribe to their blog at  ADDICTED TO STAMPS and let us know that you did.  Again, be sure your email coordinates with the one you used to comment on so we can contact you.

      I am sorry Ellen I just saw this about your link, but I wanted to say those are not my kiddos, lol. It is my neice and nephew, she gave me permission to use the photo and it was PERFECT for the card!

    Love what you did with the large photo on the layout. I’d be so afraid to cut uip an enlargement. I’m guessing that maybe you did that LO digital? Great card too – love that you used a photo on it.
