Saturday Sketch Challenge 10/8

Happy weekend everyone!!!!  I hope you are all having a great weekend!  I am getting ready for a Craft Show at Fossil Ridge High School next Saturday.  If you are in the Fort Worth area, I hope you'll stop in and say "Hi"!

I had fun with the sketch this week.  I taught a technique called Collaged Circles and  I really love how it makes the one layer look like multi-colored paper!  It's a great way to use your scraps!  Here's the sketch:

UDI Saturday Sketch Challenge 10/1

HAPPY WORLD CARDMAKING DAY!!!!!  I am celebrating with  restarting Technique Classes tomorrow!  Everyone was travelling so much and with my sister's Chemo this summer, they got put on hold.  But we'll be starting off with a bang tomorrow!  I used one of the techniques we'll be learning tomorrow on my card for today. 

Our sketch is brought to us by Queen Elizabeth -- Elizabeth Harris that is!!  Elizabeth will be bringing our UDI sketches for the month of October!  Thank you Tammy Fite for designing the September challenges!  Here is Elizabeth's first sketch:

And here's my take on it using the Blesmooshing technique!


Stamps:   French Foliage
Ink:  Cajun Craze
Cardstock:  Crumb Cake
Accessories:  Bleach, Gold Glow Smooch Spritz, 1/8" Very Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon (Wait, there's no vanilla ribbon on this card!!!  That's right, I dyed it with our Cajun Craze stamp pad!!!), gold brads

I hope you all have a wonderful week!!!!  Check out what the other Designers have done over HERE at the UDI Blog!
