PP251: A Sketch Challenge from Nance

Greetings friends!  Nance here, excited to bring you this month's sketch challenge.  However, before I show you our challenge, there are some changes to tell you about.  Sadly, this is our last challenge with our amazing Guest Designers Debbie, Karren and Shannon.  We are so grateful for their creativity, kinship and hard work over these last 6 months.  We're going to miss you gals---thank you, thank you!  Also, our dear friend Anne Marie will take a leave of absence from the team.  We are going to miss her dearly but will be right here waiting for her when she returns and we know you will be too!

So, how about a little sketch?!  I hope you like it and it inspires you to join in the fun.  Let's see what the design team has created for you...

Winners for PP248 - Joanne's Theme Challenge

Hi everyone! Joanne here, with a big thank you to all of you who played along with my masculine theme challenge this week. It was SO much fun to visit your blogs and see so many creative ideas - you made my decision a tough one!

Before we get to my Headliner for the week--- let's see what caught the eye of the Design Team:  



And now for the Headliner:

Wendy Klein


Wetlands is a classic set for masculine cards, yet Wendy's card really rings the changes with her DSP background and fussy cut grasses which add so much structure, texture and detail. These combined with the yellow diecut 'thanks' make for a rather special masculine card, made all the more so by Wendy's accompanying blog post that touched my heart. Congratulations Wendy on being my Headliner this week!
