As promised, here is a card sketch challenge! Please check out the blog for the sketch, a link to my model card, and all the important details:

Card Sketch Challenge Blog

I've called it #1, not because I plan to offer a card sketch regularly, but just so that we can keep track if anyone decides to offer one. So please feel free to come up with a sketch and start a #2 thread (after this one is finished, of course!).

Have fun! (and please combine with any other challenges if you wish)

Christin!!! I like the way you THINK!!! Not just a great sketch challenge, but also the way you address the possibility of another StamPea offering a '#2'. Not only is that 'gracious' on your part, but also opens up the idea of an on-going challenge with multiple hosts.

May I offer a suggestion about that? Apart from someone else just doing #2, I would suggest that they PM you so it doesn't get confusing. Yeah! Look who's talking about 'confusing', huh?

I very much like your sketch and have a question. Is stamping in the three boxes mandatory - could it be an embellishment or could it be part of a photo, or an embossed image.

Then having the sentiment a stamp.

Just want to make sure. I would enjoy doing either the stamping, photo or embossing.

Thanks

Ann

Thanks for your enthusiasm, everyone!

Ann, I realized after I'd posted it that I forgot to say whether stamping is a requirement. So I'll say "no", it's not a requirement this time. I'm also conscious that some people come to this board as a 'cardmaking' board, so may not be stampers.

Daniel, I'll reply to you later. Out of time!

LOL. I missed the absence of 'stamping required'. I automatically assume (yeah. I know about assuming ) that stamping is a 'given'.

Thanx for the update, Christin.

I have a few ideas, but might tackle the 'sentiment' first. Not my strong suit for stamping them.

Glad to oblige, Cropduster!

Daniel, I've got to the point of assuming that stamping is a requirement, too, but since I forgot to mention it...

But I'm thinking now.... Like I said, this Board is also frequented by non-stampers, so maybe we should keep this challenge open for them, too. (it's actually also the 'cardmakers' board on the iPhone app, and used to be on the website, too - that's how I came to it, then I fell in love with stamping!).

Me too Christin!! I came to Twopeas b/c I am a cardmaker and found Twopeas App and it had a cardmaking section, thus I joined Twopeas. It was after I started hanging out with everyone here that I started stamping! Sometimes it is fun (for me at least) to try to make a card w/o stamping since that was what I always did before Twopeas!

FYI, I added some comments about stamping requirements over at Daniel's Ongoing Challenges Thread. I thought maybe others might want to chime in on it and that seemed like an appropriate place to "talk."

This was a lovely sketch to work with, thank you Christin!

I made two cards, both Valentines, but very different.

Christin, Thanks for stepping into the void to keep the sketch challenges going!

Fresh out of ideas after making a BUNCH of Valentine's it was great to have your fresh sketch to work with!

Glad I could be of assistance, Marshia.

Your card is gorgeous! Thanks so much for playing along, and I'm glad you liked the sketch.

Now when you say"keep the sketch challenges going"... Don't get too excited, it's not a regular thing!

Glad to see this challenge to get me back into making some cards and stamping. I needed a birthday card, so I came to this board looking for a challenge to get me going (and a sketch too). Thanks for doing this.

I'm glad you found it so useful, Sophikins! Thanks for taking part!

Heidi, I was planning to start a master thread for card sketches, but will have to leave it till next week as I'm a bit out of action this week. I'm glad you're going to open the photo inspiration up to other hosts, too - I might have a go at that at some point! I think it's great the way the challenges seem to be going this year. Lots of fun and inspiration.

I fought the good fight... I lost!

I was 'finished' with my sketch card. Then it sat there reproaching me. It demanded that I 'finish' it correctly so I did.

Managed to do it without screwing it up. Goes in the mail tomorrow. Goes in a sealed envelope today!!

Thanks for a fun challenge.

Here is my card and I did use stamping, but sometime, I might use this sketch to showcase some photos.

I had fun with this challenge and like my bold images and colors. Hope you like it to.

I am going to try to do another entry for this challenge - the stamps on on my workspace, so no excuse to not to the 2nd one.

I like the fun teapots, Ann! Thanks for taking part.

Yes, photos might be a cool idea - I didn't think of that. Hope you get to try it some time.

I was looking at some of the entries and butterflies, birds and hearts were a popular image that was used. I found that interesting!
