Recently found another great sketch challenge blog called Tuesday Morning Sketches, you know i can't resist a good sketch.........i think i'm addicted!!

You may also know that i like my cards to actually look like the sketch i've followed...........sometimes you see designs that are nothing like the original sketch! which i have to say i find very bemusing!!!

  1. I know what you mean, but I guess that's what happens when you say "be inspired by the sketch", it goes totally beyond recognition, hehe

  2. Fabulous sweet card, adorable angel.

  3. I agree, I like to keep what I make looking like the sketch too. Great card - well done. x

  4. thats a fab sketch, love your take & the cute little cheruby angel x

  5. Thats a lovely card Carol, the paper and colour combo is fab. Whoops I thought that image was Penny me. x

  6. Carol thank you for your kind comment on my blog! Your card is wonderful - that angel is so sweet and how you combined textures is very cool!

    Thank you for playing along with us at Tuesday Morning Sketches!

  7. lovely card Carol and great use of the cardboard again

  8. Wonderful card Carol!! I love all the texture!

    Carol, CONGRATS on your win over at Inktegrity!! :D

  9. Hi Carol! I just had to pop in for so many wonderful reasons on this beautiful Thursday. First off, a huge congratulations as my ladybugs from Inktegrity are flying your way! Your name was randomly selected for today's release, I am so excited to see what you create with them as I am now a loyal follower. I also see that we are connected by degrees of separation - I love the girls at TPE (Lori, Robing and Ann are so very awesome) and Sheri (also on the TPE DT) is a longtime friend of mine.
    And finally, WOW! Your card for TMS (I am on the DT) is so incredible!!! I love that you turned flowers into snowflakes, that is truly a sign of a talented crafter. The texture of this card is amazing, I am blown away by the interpretation of Melissa's sketch - although it is literal, it is sooo beautiful and artistically done.
    Have a wonderful Thursday Carol! And please send me an email so I can get these ladybugs off to you. :D
    huge hugs~

  10. Hi Carol - this is just so cute I really love these little angels they never date and can be used for all sorts of cards. I would never have thought to use the porcelain papers for a christmas card either - very clever. Congratulations on your win too!

    Love Lynda xxx

  11. What a lovely card. Okay, I'm starting to think I am way behind now. I haven't even thought about Christmas.



Thanks for your visit today :) I appreciate your time and your comments and i'd love to come over and visit you too! ;-D
