The Willow Sketchie DT got some pretty sad news this week.Sharon Armstrong,the owner of Willow Designs,had to make the difficult decision to close her online shop.But there is some good news to follow….Those who may be familiar with Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine will know Sharon appears regularly as a designer.She will be continuing to work with this magazine and will be continuing to design one way or another.And the shop won’t be closing immediately so you can still drop by and pick up some crafty goodies – especially as all clear stamps and CD-roms are half price.
Which brings it back to the challenge blog…Well,Kelly our lovely DT Coordinator has decided to keep the challenges going.The basic sketch/theme format will remain the same but there will be lots of exciting changes made.The first being the name.As from Monday we will be known as Digi Sketch Challenge . I hope our regulars from the old challenges will continue to support the new venture and that we will get some lovely new players too 🙂 So please join us to find out all the info!
So onto my card.As there is no challenge this week this a Thank You to Sharon and to our dedicated followers at Willow Sketchie Challenges.I’ve used Butterfly & Daisy Digital Stamp by Willow Designs and coloured it with some pearlescent watercolour paints.The papers are First Edition Family Ties and the shimmery card is Trimcraft 12 x 12 pearlescent Textured card.I’ve used a large corner rounder on the right hand corners and an extra small one on the sentiment tab.The With Thanks stamp is a past freebie from Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine and has been stamped in Dandelion Memento Dew Drop Ink.Some gems have been used to embellish.
Please stop by the challenge blog to see some of the other DT’s farewell creations and I,and the rest of the team,would love you to join us on Monday.
