It's the last Saturday of the month and this weeks sketch is being sponsored by our kind & generous, regular sponsor...

And WOW! what a treat for you all... this week you could win these two fantastic Whiff of Joy stamps!

you could make fabulous St George's Day cards using these designs!

for those that don't know, St George is the patron saint of England, and is celebrated on April 23rd (which happens to be my daughters birthday too!)

Whiff of Joy stamps are available in The Craft Barn's bricks and mortar shop and via mailorder.

Sketch #42 - 14th March - sponsored by The Cutting Cafe

Happy Saturday everyone! Thanks you all for your gorgeous creations using last weeks challenge, the winner of last weeks challenge will be announced soon. Special thanks to Ria for her beautiful sketch!

This weeks Sketch is being sponsored by The Cutting Cafe.

Here is a bio about The Cutting Cafe and it's owner, Regina Easter...

"Hello my name is Regina Easter. I have 4 wonderful children and an awesome supportive husband. I have for as long as I can remember loved all the aspects of creating things with paper and drawing. So it was only fitting that I decided to open up The Cutting Cafe' and I am loving every bit of this new venture.
The Cutting Cafe' offers affordable Printable Stamps and Cutting Files.
The Cutting Files which are basically just like templates are files that you Print out using your home printer, Cut, Assemble and then Embellish.....Very Easy.....The Cutting Files also come in the format where you can cut out the files using some of the latest Machine Cutters like the Pazzles Inspiration and Cricut (with Scal software).
The Printable Stamps are just that, images that are sent to you through email that you print out using your home printer. After the images are printed out, you can just color them in like you would any other stamped image.
One great thing about the Printable Stamps and Cutting Files is that you no longer have to worry about finding space to store all of your stamps....You can keep them all in a folder in your computer and use over and over again".

Thank you Regina.
I'm happy to announce that the prize this week will be 3 downloads from The Cutting Cafe! what a great prize!
Obviously there isn't a picture to show you because you get to choose your own prize!

Here is this weeks sketch...

And here is the stunning card made by our guest designer, Shary.
We'd all like to thank Shary for being part of our little family these past 2 weeks, and for making the most beautiful examples to show to you all. Thank you Shary! xx


Hope you have fun with this weeks sketch,
Happy Crafting everyone! xx

Sketch #41 Ria's week, sponsored by Funky Fairys Papercrafts

Thank you all for all the lovely entries that where send in last week. It looks like we get more and more new participants every week :) Now on to this week.

Okay this week it is this Chicken's(Ria) time to create the sketch.
This challenge is sponsored by:
Funky Fairys Papercrafts
Shaz is offering one of her Fabulous Downloadable papers as a prize. I myself LOVE the papersets because of all the color options you get in a set.
First Let me tell you I am no sketch artist, I am a cardmaker and enjoy this much more then creating a sketch. JO MADE ME DO THIS! so it is not my fault if the sketch doesn't work for everybody ;)
For my sketch I used one of the free set from Raspberry Road Designs Digi scrapsets.

Our Guest Designer for the next two weeks is the fabulously talented Shary . Thanks so much for agreeing to join us and for your Gorjuss card!

And here are all of the wonderful creations by the rest of the Design Team.
