Black and White Inspiration at Sketches: Creatively Yours Challenge

This is the first post Sketches:  Creatively Yours (S:  CY).    There is a sketch with an inspiration to get you going.  I absolutely loved this challenge, since it made me think outside of my comfort zone.  I don't usually scrap Black & White photo's but the inspiration spoke to me to try.  As you see that each DT member the inspiration picture said something different and that is when you put your own spin on it.  Thanks Aly for having this blog and coming up with this challenge.
Come over and play with us at Sketches: Creatively Yours.  There is a prize at the end of the month.  There are 2 sketches so 2 chances and it is a Close to Your Heart stamp set this month. This sketch is due March 13th, midnight  AST time.

Here is the inspiration piece: 

and here is the sketch: 

and what I came up with: 

Hope to see you playing at the site.  I would love to see how your take on the sketch and inspiration.

Polka Dot Challenge at Cards in Envy.

Hello Everyone,

I have another challenge for you over at Cards in Envy.  The challenge is to use Polka Dots and/or Stripes.  No sketch so you can make up your own or something found on the Internet.  Come on over and give it a try.

I love polka dots and I wanted to try something different so I used Bo Bunny Bold & Bright Double Dot Designs.  I wanted to use a variety of colors and try to make a ray of sorts. 

This is what I came up with: 

I am thinking I will make one of these again now that I have the hang of how to do it.

So Excited To Share The News!!!!

Hi Everyone,

I am shouting from the rooftop to tell you how excited I am to share that m a DT on a new Sketch Site Called:  Sketches: Creatively Yours
I have known for a couple of days, and have managed to keep it quiet.  I love the sketches and I think you will also.   I hope you play along with us.  There will be 2 ts a month (every other week) and the month that has 5 weeks there will be  a card on that last week.  I hope to see you there and now I will share my layout and card that I did to try out for the site.

and here is my take on this.

The paper I used is My Minds Eye along with their embellishments, some twine and cardstock.

They also asked us to do a card from this sketch. 
So I made a Valentine Card Using Fancy Pants Love Notes, maroon cardstock, pink heart bling, twine and SRM sentiment.

It was fun working with both sketches.  Come on over and see the other DT's that will be named today.
