Sketch Week and some announcements

Thanks to everyone who played along with our challenges in November. I will be drawing the winners of the sponsored prizes later this week and will announce them along with our November Top Ten. A great big THANK YOU to our sponsors, Wendy and Teri - you gals rock!

We are starting a new month but will only have a couple of challenges before we take a much deserved holiday break so there will be no new Guest DT and no sponsored prizes for December. But I hope you will still play along with us!!!

As we are heading into December, this will also be the last few weeks for our current Design Team. Haven't they been awesome?? I can't thank these ladies enough for hanging out with us these past few months and wow-ing us with their artwork week after week.

But with their departure, the doors are open for YOU to apply to be in the next DT group!! Watch for the details on how to apply later this week, as well, and then send in those applications. The team will be bigger than ever so I hope you will throw your hat in the ring!

Now on to this week's challenge. A favorite - a sketch! Here's the sketch we're working with:


Now let's see what the DT has to share with you for this week's challenge, starting with our departing Guest DT for November, Allisa:

Beautiful in blue! Thank you for joining us this month, Allisa!

Also, playing along is one of our November sponsors, Wendy:

Another blue beauty! I love these colors for a holiday card - so fresh and fun! Thanks for playing along Wendy!







And there you have it - a sketch flipped every possible direction with amazing results! So let's see what you can do with it. Just be sure to include CTMH products or your link will be removed! Have fun creating!

Thank You for such a wonderful op to get out my "Believe" paper and play. Plus get some updates completed for November. There is a free desktop wallpaper at the end of the post. I appreciate the chance to create and the challenges you post. Thank You very very much for the inspiration.
