Wanna Sketch no. 22 Highlights Thank you all for your beautiful card for this month and the whole year!!!  Each round I just love seeing what you all have done.  Let’s get to our highlights for Wanna Sketch #22. Don’t you just love Joyce’s holiday scene?  I sure do.  From the red brick buildings, yellow cab and Santa in flight, all of it is pure perfection. I absolutely adore the sting of lights on Nora’s card.  From the bright colors to the glossy accents, it all works in perfect brilliance. It is no secret, I’m one of Therese’s biggest fans!!!  …

[11.9.2014] wanna sketch no. 21 reminder

Hello Wanna Sketch Friends… Yay, you all are rockin’ out this sketch.  I am blown away by all the amazing ideas.  I want to see MORE, so keep them coming.  I’m back with a second take on the challenge, ready? When my Picscan mat arrived, this deer was the first image I cut out.  I just couldn’t wait to try out my new Cameo toy.  I colored him with watercolors, let it dry and then used my Cameo to cut him out.  Then, I promptly forgot about him.  Ha.  So, he has been sitting on my desk for weeks, just …

[10.19.2014] wanna sketch no. 21

Hello Wanna Sketch Friends… Sketch number 21 coming right up.  Have fun and see where it takes you.  The flowers can be anything from stamps to sequins.  You make the call and I can’t wait to see what you come up with. Wow, is it really that time to start thinking about Christmas cards?  Nah.  I don’t believe it.  I still have a month to really think about them.  But Unity came out with a brand new sentiment kit for Christmas (designed by me) and I just had to ink it up.  The are sized big and bold to be …
