Sketch Challenge Star Award MMM

This design team member is very artistic and her work always seems to have a mystical and magical feeling to it. Her creativity is undeniable and she uses her own original artwork on a lot of her cards. She sells her wonderful creations on Etsy. Check it out if you have a minute. Her digital abilities, inventiveness, and unique styles are incredible. I thought we could honor her with using her own art work on her Award. Please join me in also congratulating her on her upcoming wedding. Jessica, you are going to make a beautiful bride. Thank you for being a part of this team.

  42. Hi!
    I've been thinking about your DT call for awhile. I'm not sure I have enough talent, but you will be the judge of that. I have enjoyed playing along with your challenges and am willing to promote you on my blog. In fact I already promote you.
    Here's the link to my blog,

    I know you've been there because you leave comments which I greatly appreciate. Thanks for considering me.

  43. Hello! I'm back crafting and managed to get 2 of the sketches done for July. Nothing like down to the wire. I'd love to be considered for the DT, but realize you probably have someone in mind already. I'll still throw my hat into the ring and watch for upcoming openings since July was a slow crafting month for me. Here's my take on sketch #10. Can't wait to see the winners and meet the new DT member!
