Sketch time!

You know you love them! It's sketch week! But before we get to the new challenge, let's wrap a few things up from March, shall we?

First, a great big THANK YOU to our sponsors this month - Lori Brown and Angela Parchey! You both rock! And I have the prize winners to announce and they are  - - - - drumroll - - - - for Lori's prize it is Jen Patrick, entry number 9 from the Times 3 create a scene challenge week and Angela's prize goes to Theresa G, entry 24 from the home decor challenge!! Congratulations ladies! Please contact me at mbryt1@bex.net with your mailing info so I can pass it along to our sponsors!

So now we should be starting with new sponsors but I messed up. New sponsors won't start until next week. But that just won't do!! So, we will have a one week prize week this time around and I will be sending out a mystery prize to one lucky participant. Keep in mind, the deadline to enter this week's challenge will be SAT. 10:00 pm EST.
 
Let's get to the challenge then - as I mentioned before it's a sketch - well, actually it's 2 sketches - take a look:
 

 
The sketch can be a circle shaped card or can have a circle element on a standard card. Your choice. Let's see the different ways the Design Team interpreted these sketches, starting with our March Guest DT, Mary Gunn, who is joining us for the last time this week - it's been a pleasure working with you, Mary!

So cute! Mary chose to mount her circle sketch shape onto a standard card - great work Mary!

Lisa made a completely round card, like the 1st sketch posted. Now for the rest of the team:








One little sketch - ok, two - and so many possibilities! Love it! But now it's your turn~ let's see what you can create based on the sketches. And remember, for this week only, you must enter your artwork by this Saturday at 10 pm EST to be eligible to win a mystery prize!!

REMINDER: You MUST use Close To My Heart products in your artwork to be eligible for any prizes or for a place in our monthly Top Ten. This is a CTMH challenge blog, after all! Have fun!

Please ignore entry #16. I clicked enter too soon, and my computer had autofilled the URL. :( #17 is my entry...the card titled "Blessed". It's been a while since I've played along. Thanks for the inspiration. :)
