Sweet Sketch Wednesday #199!!

Hi there friends!!  What an awesome Challenge this week - Sweet Sketch Wednesday's 199th Challenge.  The Sketch is one of my Designs.  I thought it was fairly easy, straight forward with the quarter circle until I realized I did not have a die the right size...  so I got a little retro and traced a salad dish for my quarter circle and used my good old scissors...  It did the trick =)

Here is the Sketch...
And here is my card...
I LOVE this fun image!!  I used papers from Lawn Fawn, the sentiment is Paper Smooches.  I colored the image with my Copics and cut it out and mounted it with pop dots.  The ribbon is from my stash.

Our Sponsor this week is Jackie Mathews of Paper Addictions.  Jackie has a prize of 5 Digi Stamps to our Winner - how awesome!!  

Meet Jackie...  My name is Jacqueline Mathews and I am a crafter and designer.  I love paper, pens, doodling, stamping and above all designing.  I have a degree in fine arts with an emphasis in graphic design.  I worked in the graphic design industry for many years and quit 15 years ago to become a stay at home mom for my 3 kids.  Now that the kids are older and don’t need me as much, I am reinventing myself and have decided that I wanted to create my own line of digital stamps.  I have dabbled in rubber stamping and became a “Stampin’ up!” demonstrator and had a blast, but thought it would be more fun to create my own stamps.  I decided digital was the way to go.  It is affordable for the customer and for the designer.  I now have a digital stamp shop on Etsy called “PaperAddictions”.  I would love to create my own line of rubber stamps someday, but for now I am testing my designs out in my shop to see if anyone likes them.  I am pleasantly surprised that I have gotten a good response to the images I have designed so far.  This positive response has motivated me to create more images in the future.  

So get Crafty my friends - can't wait to see your creations!!

  3. Oh Sally, this card is so darn cute! Honestly I ended up using a bowl too when I realized the fancy die that I had ... was too big to fit inside my cutting machine! Oh well, as you said, scissors work!

  4. I had to hand cut my circle too! What a cute image. Love your papers and colors. Happy Easter Sally.


  5. I originally cut a circle out on my Cricut but then I had to wing it with the scissors and trim it up a bit to fit in there! Oh the adventures and fun we have! You card this week is just absolutely adorable! Love that gorgeous ribbon bow too.

    Peace & Luv,
