A Handfull of Challenges

Wow- lately I have seen a number of new sketch challenges and other creative card challenges popping up in the cyber world, it seems like it's the latest fad these days. It's always exciting to participate in challenges, and it's a great way to spark those creative juices. Their are so many good challenges out there, I only wish I had time to create something for all of them. Here are a few I managed to cobble together for this week;

This is my card for sketch #3 on the Card Patterns blog. I will have to admit that it is one of my more looser interpretations of a card sketch. I really had fun making this card, although it completely changed during the creative process from what I had intended it to be. It's also doing double duty as my entry for this weeks challenge on the Card-a-licious blog. This week's challenge just asks you not to include a sentiment, it was too easy to pass up.

I also managed to squeeze in a card for sketch #104 on the CPS blog.

And finally, since I am such a huge fan of all things Basicgrey I just couldn't pass on participating in this weeks Basicgrey Challenge. I used paper from BG's Sultry line to create this little card.

Thanks for stopping by to have a look.

Great cards!!! It's always fun to see where a sketch takes us - they're supposed to inspire us and we don't necessarily have to copy them exactly. Nice job with CP#3 - thanks for joining us!
