Its a Sketch with a Twist

I love sketch challenges because I like to have a pattern to follow. I don't seem to have any real artistic ability so it makes things harder to do. The sketch I am using here is stolen from a fellow crafter. It is a simple sketch but its the twist that will make the challenge.

The twist is to add a tag. You can't use any of the sketch pieces, but it can be any size and shape that suits you. It must have a hole with ribbon/fiber and be on the front of the card. Removable or stationary, your choice.  Five pieces plus a tag. Have fun Ladies.

YOU MUST LINK BACK TO US on your blog to be eligible for the drawing.  Please double check that the link is valid.  Thanks everyone!  Our guest sponsor for this challenge is Creative Bug Digis offering five digital images of your choice to the winner of the drawing:
"I am a proud mom of 2 amazing boys. I am in love with motherhood and love life to the fullest (although you know we all have our days, wink wink) I started out as an avid scrapper (not the fightin’ kind) which led to making cards, then I found my true passion “Creating Digital Images”. I have been sketching people throughout my life yet could never draw an animal; for example, a bear would end up looking like a mouse. In 2009 I took a Graphic/Web Development course that enabled me to hone in on my creativity so today a bear looks somewhat like a bear, lol. I enjoy making websites with Dreamweaver CS4 and learning more each day about HTML and CSS. We all have our favorites to work with when we get the “Creative Bug”, mine is without a doubt working with stamps. My favorite tool would have to be the scoreboard which I use to make envelopes, boxes and creative designs on the edges of my cards. I am a working mom, a social butterfly (I am told) and love to sing, play guitar and compose music but most of all I am a loyal friend, a little eccentric at times, sincere, honest and love love love to have fun!! There is always laughter in my home, I believe life is what you make it for it is in the way we perceive every little thing"

And now for some inspiration using our sponsor's images:

  6. Oh my gosh ladies. Your projects turned out just wonderful! I'm so pleased with all the ways you've used the Creative Bug Digital SnapShot Images. I would have liked to visit each of the DT's blogs and left comments but unfortunately, you don't have links to them.

    If any of you on the DT have used something old AND something new in your creations, I invite you to come over and link up your project to our own challenge that is still on until Tuesday at 6:00 p.m. EDT. You can find the challenge info and link up here:
