Sketch Challenge #101

Sketch Challenge #101

Merry Christmas, everyone! I hope Santa is bringing you lots of crafty goodies this morning!

If you’re lucky enough to have some crafting time during the holidays, how about participating in the ODBD December challenge? We need 20 more participants in order to get 2 boxes sponsored!

Also a quick reminder to get your Valentines in the mail to your shipper, please! They need to be in her hands by Saturday!

Here’s your sketch – thought we’d try something a little different this week, let’s stretch those crafty muscles, okay?


Our sample card this week was made by cardmaker Donna. She isn’t a blogger so be sure and leave some comments for her here on this post. Aren’t those pennants darling? Thanks for the cute card, Donna!

Hmm, what else could become a pennant? Maybe circles folded in half? Rectangles? Bits of ribbon? See what you can come up with and be sure to come back and 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.


  1. Oh my gosh, Donna, that is such a cute card! I love the bright colors and the font on the sentiment goes great with the pennants. Great job!

  2. What a fun sketch and a fabulous sample card too! I hope I can carve some timeout to give this one a try.

  3. Great card, Donna! I love the argyle DP you used for the pennants, and your sentiment font has a kind of circus-carnival feel, which matches perfectly! What a fun sketch for #101!

  4. (Sue & Linda, I can't comment on your blogs so am doing so here.) Sue, I love the masculine look to your card and the way the letters hang off the edges of the triangles just a little bit. Linda, I love your fearless use of pattern and color. I see the quilting influence in many of the cards on your blog. (Ronni & Nancy, I left comments on your blogs.)

  5. This is such a happy card….colorful design.
    My eye was drawn to the center pennant as it looks like an ice cream cone with the cloud on top:)) Will have to see what I can do with this one now.
    Thanks for the inspiration.

  6. Success! 🙂

  7. Great sketch! Beautiful card Donna. Love the clouds and colors you used.
