Thanks to the encouragement of a few Stampeas, I'd like to introduce an official, on-going 'Card Sketch' thread.

A lot of us enjoyed Kimber's weekly sketches last year and will certainly miss the weekly inspiration. So let's step up and keep the inspiration coming!

I have already offered Card Sketch #1 for 2013 (which is still open until Monday, BTW), but won't be able to do it regularly, SO if you would like to offer a card sketch, please let me know, either via this thread, or by peamail.

Your sketch can be computer generated (like mine) or hand-drawn and photographed (like Kimber's were).

You can decide whether stamping is a requirement or not; whether you provide a 'model' card or not; whether you'd like there to be any other requirements; whether you offer a RAK or not... It's up to you!

I suggest, to avoid confusion, that we keep the two-week timeframe for participants to complete the sketch, and please start a blog for your challenge (it's really easy - ask me if you're not sure how!)

So, as Sketch #1 is almost finished, who would like to offer Sketch #2?

Christin, I would be interested in coming up with a sketch at some point, but I don't think I would be able to do this till after Winterfest.

Christin, I've got a card sketch ready. I would just like to make a sample to go with it first. I'm working on that today

That's fantastic!

LeighAnn, do you want to go ahead and post your challenge (#2) whenever you're ready, and Heidi, maybe check in here again after WF when you're ready.

Thanks to both of you!

I would like to do a sketch too--but I will not be able to do one until the end of February the earliest or beginning of March.

Do we just check this thread to see who or when someone wants to do the next one?

That's great, Melissa! I'm so excited that so many have put their hands up already...

Yes, it looks like you and Heidi will be ready to do one at roughly the same time, so if you check in here first, whoever gets in first can do #3.

Just bumping this now that Winterfest is well and truly over, so it's easier to find when someone's ready to host a card sketch.

I'm too much a a newbie to host, but I sure love participating. Looking forward to seeing more sketches. Last Fall Kimber's sketches are what got me into actually stamping instead of looking at my unused stamps. (and I have done submissions both of the ones for this year)

Daniel wanted us to talk about types of sketches over on Sophikins thread.

https://www.twopeasinabucket.com/mb.asp?cmd=display&forum_id=22&thread_id=3226774

Linking it here in case it might be helpful to someone coming up with the sketch.

Thanks, Heidi!

Sophikins, sorry, I meant to reply to you ages ago and forgot. You're never too new to offer a challenge! But I understand that it's a little daunting. My first challenge was during WSW12 and it was a bit tricky to make sure I'd done everything right, but everyone's so helpful here, and now I love offering challenges!

So, only when you're ready...

hey everyone,

bumping this now that Heidi's sketch challenge is almost finished.

who would like to come up with a fun sketch for everyone to try?

I'd forgotten how much I love card sketches! Thanks for hosting, Heidi!

BTW, you've still got the weekend to take the challenge!

I hope someone will post a new sketch. I am really inspired by them, and almost always make a card when I see a sketch challenge. I know there are lots of them archived, but somehow the new, current ones are the most inspiring.

'M'. I'm guessing there might be a new 'sketch challenge' during the June party.

I have a really fun idea for a card sketch. I don't have it ready today, but hopefully by wednesday. How does that sound?
