Jubilee June at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2

 Hello and welcome to another challenge here at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.

We have another 2 fabulous sketches from Kathie this month.

Nice and straightforward with no dies required. We do hope that you will play along with us and we'd love it if you use any of our sketches at any time if you could give us a mention.

It's the Platinum Jubilee celebrations for Queen Elizabeth II in the UK this month so we have an OPTIONAL twist of using Red, White and Blue in our cards. 
You don't have to join in with this twist to enter the challenge.

Our Guest Designer this month is Aimeslee who won a challenge at the end of last year. 
She created with both sketches


Here is the inspiration from the Design Team

Best wishes

May at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2

Hello and welcome back!  

I'm Kelly and I will be hosting this month!  We have two fabulous new sketches for you from Kathie as well as the option of a twist.  

The twist this month is April Showers Bring May Flowers and my gosh I hope that is true.  I live in Southern Alberta and it is so so dry here, we desperately need some turn, I'm hoping for some lovely flowers this summer.  The twist is optional so you do not have to incorporate it along with one of the sketches, but if you feel inclined, that's great!

 Hello and welcome to our latest challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.

Thank you for all your lovely entries to last month's challenge hosted by Olga

We have 2  more fabulous sketches from Kathie this month and some fantastic inspiration from the design team.

As well as Easter this month, it's also Earth Day on the 22nd of April so this month's optional twist is to have an image from nature on your card, but remember the twist is optional and you don't have to follow it to enter.

So here are Kathie's sketches

Firstly sketch 226

Sketch it in Autumn Colours

Good day

I'm Olga and hosting this month's sketch challenge. I'm a child of South Africa as can see in the picture above. I love nature and am an earthy kind of person though I am adaptable to any situation. I was a stay at home mom till the beginning of the year, when my two boys left home on their new adventures. Now I'm just a normal housewife again, busy with all kinds of decor stuff and ready to travel the world.

Now to this month's challenge. Kathie has designed two lovely sketches and we decided to make things a bit more fun, from time to time and add an optional twist. Since it is the start of autumn in the southern hemisphere I decided to add the twist of autumn colours. With the colour palette chosen you can do any paper project, but we would like to see at least 3 colours, though this is always just optional. 
The DT members did an amazing job and the ideas were unlimited.

Hope you have found some lovely inspiration from the team. Now we cannot wait to see what you can bring to the table. Remember we have limited the entries to three (3) a person to give everybody a fair chance.

The prize for the month is a rubber stamp set with some ribbons and epoxy dots:
