Sketch Challenge #84

Ready for a new sketch, folks?

Are you working in Fall colors now? I know I am. Make me feel cooler on these 100+ degree days! Thanksgiving and Fall cards need to be to your shipper by September 30th, that's just around the corner!

Today's sketch is great for a large image, and I can't wait to see what y'all do with it. It also features a bow! If you aren't a bow person, try just tying a loose knot and securing it with a glue dot.

Today's sample card was made for us by Valerie. I just love the beautiful patterned paper in the background. Valerie doesn't blog so please be sure and leave some nice comments for her here on this post. We appreciate the lovely sample card, Valerie, thanks!

Ready to make a card now? Let's see what you can turn out! Be sure and come back here to show us!

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 the link to that entry 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.

Love this! Perfect CAS Style and fun for so many types of cards!

Hoping all the East Coast Gals are doing well.

In in Massachusetts, the storm is much less than had been forcasted and that's VERY VERY good news! Now we hope it will continue to GO AWAY and that the repairs and restoration of power to those who lost it, can being.

I also hope our power will stay on, as it has flickered several times, despite the lower winds! We really are lucky!

Hi Anonymous! We prefer not to have them in Spanish only because we don't know which units have Spanish-speakers in them and could use them. THanks for asking!
