Sketch time!

Are you ready for a new challenge this week? It's a sketch challenge - one of my favorites! Unfortunately, I didn't get to play along this week as having a ginormous section of tree fall into your roof kinda kills the mojo for the evening! But the rest of the DT has some awesome artwork to share - wait till you see~

But before we get to that, here are the two participants who won May's sponsored prizes - both from the Button challenge week - #11 Karen Fullam and #28 Connie MacFarlane! Congrats ladies!! Please send your mailing info to me at mbryt1@bex.net and I will pass it along to the sponsor. Another BIG thank you to Angel Shifflett and Sharon Holmes for sponsoring our prizes!!

This coming month of challenges brings 2 new sponsors and 2 new prizes - take a look:

From Michelle Owen of Cutezie Creations:

And from Romaine Rancier of Bumbles n Bees:


Great prizes ladies!  Thanks so much for sponsoring us!! Be sure to stop by and leave these ladies a little note of thanks.

Ok, on to our challenge. First, I present the sketch:


And now for some beautiful artwork based on the sketch, starting with our May Guest DT, Joelle  -


Wow! Joelle chose to fill in all 4 sections of the sketch with images. You rocked the sketch, Joelle, and it was fun having you play along with the team. Thank you~







So many different looks from one simple sketch!! Fabulous work, gang!!

Now it's your turn to show us what you can do with this sketch. Just create your artwork (you MUST use some CTMH products in your artwork) post to your blog or other online public gallery and then come back here and leave us a link below. Remember you have all month to play along with the challenges to be eligible for the prizes for the month. Happy crafting!
