Challenge #33 SKETCH!!

Oh my goodness!!! Blogger is acting totally crazy today and this new way of uploading pictures came up was a long process this morning (afternoon my time). BUT....I got it!!! It's all ready for you this week. I do apologize I'm getting this up like an hour late.

I want to let you know that this is the last week with our sponsor, Sew Many Cards whose is giving our lucky winner a 15 dollar gift certificate to be used in their store!

I'm going to get right into the challenge for this week. Challenge #33 is a sketch. Very simple this extra's.
Of course this fabulous sketch (and new blog look) was done by Kelly Haberstroh! She does some great work!!! So I hope you enjoy this sketch from her.

Here is what the DT came up with this week to give you a bit of help if your having a lack of crafting mojo!!!

She loves her scrapbook layouts and so do we!! It's great that she can easily take a card sketch and turn it into a scrapbook page!!

Challenge #32 NO COLOR!!

Happy Monday morning everyone!!! I hope you all had a great weekend and are ready for a new challenge here at the Critter Sketch Challenge Blog!!!
You have two weeks left to play along for a chance to win a prize of 15 dollar gift certificate from our sponsor of the month

NO COLOR!!! To break that down for you, you can ONLY use neutral colors, tans, beige, brown, cream and so forth. The punch to this is you can not use a black and white combo. What a challenge right??? Well, if you look below you'll see that our DT had no problem with this challenge!!!

She used a technique from Splitcoast with great! How cute is that bucket of leaves!

love those color combo of the brown and cream and that hedgehog is adorable!!

What a pretty card love the border!

This card is really all the embossing. Ahhh...that poor fish looks ticked!!!

Challenge #31

Good morning lovely bloggers! It's a great Monday morning here in Germany but then again, I am almost done with my cup of coffee so everything looks better after coffee right?!!!
Yep, it's me again, BFF Melanie has asked me to help out a bit more with this fabulous challenge blog and of course I couldn't say no so I will be the one doing the Monday posts at least until I'm in the process of moving!

We are still being sponsored by the wonderful Sew Many Cards store and challenge blog. If you haven't stopped by their store yet you really need to...there are images for everybody no matter your taste! 

Are you ready for our challenge:
Challenge #31 IS......School, School, School
Your project, wether it be a card, scrapbook page, altered item, paper craft need to be school related. I have some inspiration below for you from our awesome DT team!  

Look at her cutsie altered container, her image is from Sew Many Cards

First of all, what a fabulous picture and that is the cutest tin and business card I've ever seen.

She made a bookmark. I'm in love with that border punch across the bottom

What an elegant card. I just love the coloring on the books and the background stamp.

She also used an image from Sew Many Cards. What an adorable tag!

I used a Dustin Pike image this week (a past sponsor) and I thought this would be a cute card for someone that just passed a hard test or got a good report card or just finished the school year!

I hope you all will join us this week and show off your school projects. We love to see them!!! Don't forget, the more you play the higher your chances are of winning the prize at the end of the month!!! So come back each week and play along!
