Sketch Challenge #104

Hello cardmakers! Can you believe we are already halfway through January! If you have a box to mail get it in this week before the postal rates go up on the 22nd!

We have a great sketch for you today, and a great idea! Kathryn decided to set a goal for herself to do each week's OWH sketch this year, and to keep track of that goal she created a nifty checklist pdf file. She has generously offered to share it with anyone else who wants to join her in this goal! Isn't that great!?

If you would like a checklist to track your progress, just click here to download it and save it to your computer. I've also updated the Sketches archive page to include this link.

It would also be fun to track this on our blogs with a widget, does anyone know of one? Speak up in comments if you do! Thanks!

Here's our sketch for today:



And our samplemaker is Kathryn! She has a blog called Kathryn's Cards where you can see more of her beautiful work - including each week's sketch! I just love this black, kraft, and cream card, isn't that an elegant color scheme? Thanks so much for the checklist and the gorgeous samples, Kathryn!







Last week we had three embellishments, this week three squares... what to put in them? I can't wait to see what y'all come up with, so be sure and come back here to link up and show everyone!

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.

This sketch is perfect for the January Stars & Stamps challenge, sponsored by Our Daily Bread Designs, to use three patterned papers. Thanks for jump-starting my ODBD card!

What a another great idea on using some of the little pieces we hate to part with.
Thanks for the inspiration with your super cards.

Im hoping Maureen and Yolanda will see this. I've tried several times to leave comments on their blogs and failed every time. I can get to their blogs... it's the comment that I can't get to work.

Fabulous cards ladies. Maureen I love your colors, and Yolanda I love all the texture of the crimping and copper.

I like the idea of keeping up with all of the sketches this year! I printed out the checklist so I hope to use every sketch too! Cute sketch and lovely cards, ladies! We have some really nice cards posted already too! Thanks!

Great Sketch. I really enjoyed working with it. I also downloaded the sketch challenge checklist. I plan on staying busy this year!
