Christmas Bonus Challenge with Back linking allowed and a DT Call

Welcome to our bonus challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.

A little later than I originally planned due to technical issues, we are sharing some of our favourite cards from the year and are slipping in an extra challenge for you all.
Make as many cards as you like using sketches from 2019, (there is a link to the page with them on in the sidebar) or share a favourite make with one of our sketches in 2019 and if you'd like to join our design team add DT after your name when you link your card. Our DT needs to make 2 cards each month and comment on half of our entries.

Here's some inspiration

Kathie using Sketch #158

and Sketch # 165

and also Sketch #164

Sketch 165 was one of my favourites too

and I also enjoyed Sketch no 166

and Sketch 154

Kelly using sketch #156


We look forwards to seeing your makes old and new and if there are enough entries I'll put a prize together and do a random draw for the winner.

You will have until the 28th of January to join in this challenge

Good luck
