iSpy sketch challenge and There She Goes (Again!)

Hey there! It's been a busy week of catch-up and work at my LSS after my little vacation to Ireland and I've missed my crafting!!! The mojo isn't flowing as easily as it was before Ireland, but I'm blaming that on the jetlag, lol...

Today I'm sharing a card I made for two challenges... First, today's card:






Firstly, if you're ever tired of the same ol' same ol' sketches then really..  play along with the iSpy team. Kim has found some truly unique inspiration cards and it really pushes you to get out of that one or two sketches slump... (I know I am suffering from that right now...)



This week, we are featuring Brigit Edblom aka Biggan at SCS.  She created this clean and simple card  on January 9, 2012 that we loved for its simplicity in design.


Here's how to play:
  • Create a paper crafting project (card, scrap book page or 3D item), based on the sketch provided.
  • Post your creation on your blog or an online gallery (using a code ISSC08), and link it here with the inlinkz widget below. Please provide a direct link to your post - not the generic link to your blog.
  • A new challenge will be posted every Friday at 12.01 AM EST, and you have until noon on Wednesday EST to submit your entry.
  • You may enter as many times as you like, but please provide a newly designed project with a new link for each additional project.
  • We will choose the top 2 creations to be featured in our "Top 2 Thursday" post where we will announce who we have picked :) The winners will receive their very own iSpy Sketches blog badge!
  • Don't forget that you may combine our challenges with others and use supplies from any company that you wish :)
  • Have fun and we look forward to "spying" your creations!


So the second challenge I played along with was There She Goes (Again!) and I had to make a new card using an older TSG set. I used a set called Flowers of Happiness, and right now it happens to be on sale! 


I used some older Echo Park patterned papers and a new Tim Holtz embossing folder!! Honeycomb.. love it and can't wait to use it with some bee stamps.. I coloured the image with Copics on Xpress blending cardstock - love that stuff - and cut it out with a Spellbinders die. 


Thanks for stopping by!! Have a great weekend...
