Hey there ladies and gents....it is Monday sooooo that means another fabulous challenge at the

Our regular sponsor is offcourse




and they offer a fabulous prize each week to one lucky winner......



Did you check out the store???? you did not? my goodness just run overthere and check it out cause it really is Crafters Heaven on earth.......wohooo

Oke here I go......

After I struggled for a long time and did not know what I wanted to make....I finally decided to make a card for the Men Only project, I used the fabulous Fall Seasonal Distress Inks. The colors are really great.......




The Art Parts For the Guys from The Wendy were just perfect.



The first layer on the card was made with The Tim Holtz tissue tape, just like the flower and worked on with distress inks. The lace comes from my own stash and I colored it with the Distress inks too.....


The clock and sentiment come from the stampset The Journey. And I have heat embossed it with the Copper Embossingpowder....to give it that special look....did you ever try it?? If not you just gotta try it sometime.....it really is lots of fun....
Furthermore I have used the Crackle Distress and Glossy Accents. I think I am hooked on that stuff Yess I admit it.....I am addicted to Crackle Distress and Glossy Accents.....LOL...

And here is my finished card......I must say .....maybe you like it....but I am not that pleased as I should be....so silly.....but do you regognize the feeling that you think maybe I should have done this or that.....well that is how I am feeling about this card...and I might add that it is allways a big puzzle what to make for a guy at least for me it is.....making something for a guy is usually a bit harder then to make something for a girl.....but anyways.....I will stop nagging heheeh.....and hope that you will join into the fun...because I did have lots of fun.....this was a real challenge for me.....so come on over to the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge Blog guys and while your there check out my AMAZING teamies creations.....wohoooooo cause they really made beautifull creations.....and you even make a chance on a Fabulous prize......so come on over oke?

DT CALL AT SKETCH SATURDAY...DO YOU WANT TO BE ONE

THEN COME ON OVER TO THE SKETCH SATURDAY CHALLENGE BLOG WHERE YOU CAN FIND THE

DT call

*Please scroll down for this weeks challenge sponsored by The Craft Barn*
We are looking for 2 new design team members to join Sketch Saturday! :)
Initially on a 3 month trial, with a view to a permanent position we hope.

We can't offer you any freebies as that isn't what we are about, although occasionally a sponsor will give us free images which is wonderful and very much appreciated.
But we can offer you friendship, we have a lovely DT (even if I do say so myself!)

What is required:

You MUST have your own personal blog and be prepared to post each week.

You must be able to make a card each week, and upload it before midnight on the Friday before the challenge goes live.
You will get the sketches well in advance, so you will have plenty of time to create.
You can use any craft materials you like to make your DT work (except copyright protected images of course),
The only *rule* is that you stick as close as possible to the sketch, but of course artisitc licence plays a part and is welcomed, you don't have to be 'spot on' but the sketch design needs to be seen within your work.
You must post about our challenge on your own blog each week, leaving links to SS and to our sponsors on all posts.

You must be prepared to leave comments for challengers, currently 1 challenger in every 10, although you are of course allowed to leave comments for more should you have the time to do so.

You will be expected to take a turn hosting a DT week.
DT weeks are the first Saturday of each month, the DT member is asked to make their own sketch for the challenge, arrange a sponsor, and arrange the guest designer (GD) too. You will be expected to type up the post for this week.
DT week is only for one week, but your GD will be with us for the whole month, so would be expected to make a card for each Saturday in the month you would be DT host. You are responsible for uploading your GD's cards each week before the deadline.
You must also type up the winners post the following week after your DT week, and arrange for your winner to receive their prize from your sponsor.


Sketch Saturday is a challenge blog like any other, we have no problem with our DT members being on other challenge blog DTs too.
We expect ALL of our DT members to treat SS with the same respect as others.
If you are currently on other DTs then please do apply to join us if you want to be a part of our team too, however, if it is going to be a problem for you to make a card for us if you have deadlines from other DTs to keep to, then please do not apply if this means that SS could be pushed to one side because you need to make your card for another challenge blog instead. This would not not fair to the rest of us.
We are equally as important as a challenge blog who gives you freebies to use, and expect all of our members to treat SS with the same respect.
If you are able to make a card for other DTs then you are able to make a card for us too. Fair's fair.


If you would like to join Sketch Saturday, please email myself (Jo) and Jilli with THREE of what you consider to be your favourite cards to date.
Please provide links to just the 3 blog posts of the cards you would like us to see. No more than 3.
DO NOT just give us your blog address, we can look through your blogs anyway, we only want specific posts please.

We want to arrange our new DT members asap, so if you could get your emails to us sometime over the next week, then that would be fab, thank you.

We look forward to receiving your emails! :)
SO GO TO THE SKETCH SATURDAY CHALLENGE BLOG AND JOIN INTO THE DT CALL.....
 
HUGS TERRY XXXX
