Sketch Challenge #102

Happy New Year, cardmakers! I hope you resolve to do lots of sketch cards this year ;)!

Today's sketch is a great one to get started, if you've never done a sketch card before.

Quick reminders: all OWH sketches are designed for A2 sized cards since that is what we prefer (4.25" x 5.5") and the heart shape indicates the embellishment of your choice, it does not have to be a heart.

This week we are celebrating our former shipper Dixie, as you may have seen on the Midweek Throwdown post from Wednesday. More Dixie for us today, and this time she made the cards! She has three adorable sample cards for us this week. You can read more about them and her other beautiful work on her blog, What's Next? Thanks for the awesome samples, Dixie! Thanks so much for two years of nonstop shipping, too!

Have some ideas for this sketch now? Get busy and be sure and come back here to show us what you make!

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.

Dixie, these are all wonderful cards. Each is special in it's own way, but that first one has to be my favorite. Just so special for our heroes. Happy New Year

Great samples Dixie! I think the heart is my favorite... so clean and crisp with just enough detail but all 3 are nice interpretations of this sketch. Well done!

Great cards to start to a New Year! Thanks for the inspiration. I'm off to work but hope to get back to card making in the next day or so. What better way to start but with an OWH sketch. Love Dixie's cards. Have a Happy New Year!

Dixie this is a fun sketch. I like how you something a little different with each card. The first one is my favorite -- clean and crisp. Thanks for everything you do. Much appreciated.

Isn't it fun to have time to "play"? Those cards are so cute..I am going to CASE the house one since that's my fav and I have that set.

Sherry Hickey  – (January 2, 2012 at 8:41 AM)  

Dixie, all 3 cards are wonderful! I love the red, white & blue strips on the heart card, the gorgeous house card (I want that set!!) and the cute cute fence and snowman! Awesome.

I started my blog tonight. By mistake I linked to the top ten (above). How do I delete my link? Thanks

Dixie Cochran  – (January 2, 2012 at 8:56 PM)  

@Susie, there should be a red "x" beside your name. You click on that to delete.

Susie  – (January 3, 2012 at 12:45 PM)  

Thanks Dixie for the reply, but...I have no X. Help, this is driving me nuts!! lol

Julie  – (January 3, 2012 at 8:21 PM)  

Susie, I deleted it for you from the administrator's tools.

Susie  – (January 4, 2012 at 7:13 AM)
