Hello cardmakers! Are you staying warm? Make some coffee, warm up those crafting fingers, and join us for a sketch challenge today! OWH needs some great cards!

Here’s the sketch…

Our sample cards today were made by the awesome Allison G of Allison’s Creations. She had a neat idea for her samples: the first card follows the sketch exactly, and the second card uses the same materials but “kicks it up a notch.” What a great way to show how a sketch can be a jumping off point for our creativity! And the cards are so cute! Thanks so much, Allison!

How would you kick it up a notch? Be sure and come back here to link up your blog post or online gallery so we can all see! Let’s get busy!

To play along in this week’s sketch challenge, simply upload a project using this week’s sketch to your blog or online gallery then leave the link to that entry using the Inlinkz widget at the bottom of this post. And remember, you may use this sketch at any time. Feel free to re-post the sketch on your blog along with your card… then come back and leave a link for us so we may all see your cards!

We encourage everyone to take a few moments to visit and leave comments for the other participants. Comments are a wonderful way to say thank you for sharing your creative project and inspires everyone to create.
