Sketch Challenge #62 - Special Edition!

Happy Birthday, Sandy Allnock!

That's right, folks, today is the birthday of our fearless leader, Sandy. We're celebrating with not one but THREE sketches.... to go with SIX new Frantoonies!!

For the uninitiated, Frantoonies are special digis created by Fran S, a "Gma in Silverdale" who hand draws these adorable images especially for Operation Write Home. You can read more about Fran in her Featured Friday post here. She's done a special batch for Sandy's birthday to share with us!

Important note: please remember that Frantoonies are for use on cards for OWH only and are labeled with OWH on each image for that reason. Remember to click twice on the image to get the largest version of it before saving the image.

Aren't they fantastic? To go with these new Frantoonies, we have three different sketches for you!

And of course we couldn't have just one samplemaker for all this, so we have four! Some of our admin team couldn't resist firing up their printers when they saw these Frantoonies, LOL! Below each picture is the name and link for that samplemaker. Be sure and visit their blogs, there are other images there, I couldn't fit them all in this post!!

From Barb of Paper Therapy Ponderings

From Jan of She's Gone Stampin'

From Paula of Handmade by Paula

From Yolanda of Imagine. Make. Share.

Wow! What great work, ladies! Thank you all so much for these beautiful samples.

Get busy, folks! You have lots to work with this week! Bonus points if you make a birthday card, in honor of Sandy's 29th(ish) birthday!

To play along in this week's sketch challenge, simply upload a project using this week's sketch to your blog or online gallery then leave a direct link to your project using the Inlinkz widget at the bottom of this post. And remember, you may use this sketch at any time. Feel free to re-post the sketch on your blog along with your card… then come back and leave a link for us so we may all see your cards!

We encourage everyone to take a few moments to visit and leave comments for the other participants. Comments are a wonderful way to say thank you for sharing your creative project and inspires everyone to create.
