Sketch Challenge #160

Sketch Challenge #160

Gooood morning OWHers! Wow, there sure is a lot going on this long President’s Day weekend. Have you checked out the VCMP yet? It’s day 2 already, so be sure to play along. Of course, since it’s Sunday, there’s another Sketch Challenge to get your mojo flowing. First of all let me show you this week’s terrific sketch.


Samantha is the inspiration behind this week’s sketch. She shows off her creativity on her blog, Expressions of a Craftaholic, Check out this tweet card to brighten your winter day. The link to her blog with this card is here. Don’t forget … when you visit Samantha’s blog be sure to leave her some love.

160 Sketch Sample

See, I told you it was tweet! The majority of the time Samantha uses 1/8”  borders on her cards. I’ve been doing that a lot myself, but I know lots of crafters are more comfortable using 1/4” borders. The sketch calls for 1/4” borders and that’s the difference you may notice between the sketch and Samantha’s card.


Hmmmm… this sketch would make great Mother’s Day cards wouldn’t it? Remember – the deadline to get these cards in to your shipper is March 31st. Enjoy your long weekend and be sure to make time to craft!
