Sketch Blog Hop

Welcome to the Sketch Blog Hop. Everyone has had so much fun doing these it's turned into a regular event!

The purpose of this hop is to show how all of these talented bloggers can take the same sketch and come up with totally different cards. If you've never used a card sketch before, give it a try! You should have arrived from  Zenita  and if you just happened along the hop, you can go back to the start at

First off, I want to show you the sketch we were all given to start with . . . 

When I first saw this card I thought of an idea of clothes hanging on the line to dry . . . 

I did the baby clothes in shades of blue and then used the "Oh Boy!" stamp from K Andrew Designs Of Mice and Lil Men stamp set.  I also used the stamp set Sew Much Fun to create the clothes line.  Now I just have to wait for someone I know to have a baby boy.  

Oh . . . and this weekend my family is celebrating several birthdays, so I needed to make some birthday cards and I used the same sketch again to create this birthday card for my brother-in-law.

The blue paper was picked for this card because of the little chilli peppers on it . . . my husband and his brothers LOVE their salsa and spicy food!  I used a needle and embroidery floss to string the pendant together.

I hope you enjoyed these cards and that they inspired you to create something from this sketch.  Your next stop is 

Enjoy the hop!
