Sketch Challenge #141

Sketch Challenge #141

Hello, all! I have a lot to share with you today so I’ll get straight to it…

First, if you haven’t yet you absolutely must go check out the big OWH World Card Making Day Blog Hop! So many amazing cards and so much inspiration! I had great fun visiting all of them yesterday, and it was such a treat to see so many OWH sketches revisited! And if you’re on Pinterest, we’ve got a bloghop board for you to check out!

Next up, your sketch for today…


We have two great samples for you today, thanks to cardmaker Jen M. She has a blog called The Sparkle Within – be sure and visit her, I think she has a funny story to tell about one of her sample cards today! I love how she used a die cut shape in the place of the large semicircle on the Christmas card – isn’t that a great tweak? Thanks so much for two beautiful cards, Jen!


But wait, folks, there’s MORE! Yesterday on my stop on the blog hop, I offered up a bonus sketch! Check it out…



I also asked folks to email me a card sample using the bonus, and from the entries I drew one to be our sample here today – made by Gayle W! She has a blog called Stampingville which sounds like a place I’d like to live, lol! Thanks for the beautiful and quick sample, Gayle!



Alright, everyone! You have two sketches, three samples, and tons of inspiration! Let’s see what you can do! Come back here to link up the cards you post to your online gallery or blog using the Inlinkz widget below.  And be sure and visit the others that link up as well so we can all encourage each other!



  1. Gorgeous card, gayle! I love the ribbon!

  2. Oh gosh – so excited – Thank you, Julie! And Jen, I adore that nostalgic St. Nick!

  3. all are great cards, but I’m loving the design on the bonus card sketch, so I think that is the one I will “play” with doing today (in between loads of laundry, grocery shopping, etc!)

  4. Great inspiration Jen and Gayle! Thanks Julie for two awesomely fun sketches!

  5. Yippee!! A bonus sketch — I have one card done and hope to find time to make a second card with the bonus sketch later this week! THANKS for the fun!!!

  6. Thanks very much for the wonderful sketches and samples. I really like trying new layouts.
