DS 79

Hi there all and happy Thursday. It's been a hot one here today where I live. High thirties it reached, and into the forties in other parts of Victoria.

Good crafting weather though, keeping cool in front of the air conditioner.

This week's Deconstructed sketch was designed by the awesome Jen Shults. It  didn't take me long at all to put this one together. I'm pretty sure I followed her sketch to the letter too.

For my card I used The Greeting Farm's Latte Anya, and scraps of patterned paper. I stamped Anya onto watercolor paper and colored her using Tim Holtz distress markers. I think my watercoloring skills are slowly improving.

My very dear friend has just moved to a town 1000s of kilometres away, and I sent this to her for her Birthday. I miss her so much. She does read my blog but she has already received the card  so all is good.

There's lots of inspiration on the Design team's blogs, so make sure you check out their samples.....

Then don't forget to link up your entry on  THE DECONSTRUCTED SKETCH BLOG

It is our guest designer Cresta's last week with us this week, and we are looking for a new guest designer.......

It’s time for YOU to throw your hat into the ring to be our next guest designer. If you’d like to be considered all you need to do is make a project with this week’s sketch, post it on your blog and add a link to InLinks on Jen's blog for DS79. That’s it! The deadline to enter is next Wednesday, December 5, 2012 at 10 pm CST. The guest designer will be announced next Friday, December 7, 2012 and will design with us for DS81 and DS82 before we break for the Christmas holiday!!

We can't wait to see what you create. Will you be our next guest designer?
