Here is more inspiration from the DT on the September sketch.
This one is from me. I don't generally do pastels but I like this color combination.
Very pretty I think. And I like this stamp set called Fun Pun from Stampin' Up!
Very cute set. There are 8 stamps in this set and all of them are funny.
This is from Lisa. Love the diecut and the stars.
She has made this for her son's birthday.
Great masculine card. Love it.
This is from Chris W. She is very clever too.
She made an extra Shabbychic ATC for a swap, added more embellishments and made it into a card. Just beautiful. Love it
So what are you waiting for?
Give the september sketch a go and link your post to Mr. Linky.
Can't wait to see your take on the sketch.
See you soon

She is a also a fantastic scrapbooker, card maker and a Stampin' Up! demonstrator.You can see all her gorgeous work here
Hi, my name is Renae Woods.
I live in Sydney NSW with my wonderful husband Ben. I have been scrapping for 2 and a half years and recently joined Stampin’ Up! as an Independent Demonstrator.
When I’m not scrapping or making cards, you will find me hitting the gym or at baseball with Ben. My card making and scrapping style is constantly changing as I learn new techniques and become inspired by other designers. Over the last 12 months I have found a new appreciation for stamps and am addicted! They are so versatile and can be used over and over again and I especially love using them when making cards.
I look forward to this new challenge and sharing my work with you.
Here is Renae's take on the sketch
She has used Core-dinations c/stock with Stampin’ Up! Designer Series paper (Urban Oasis) and Stampin’ Up! Stamps (Fun & Fast Notes and Short & Sweet).
Gorgeous Card Renae. Love the distressing.
I am looking forward to working with my new Design Team members and seeing all your new creations using my sketch.
I am all excited with the new start and can't wait to see the entries. So keep them coming.
There is a second post coming up today. So drop in again a little later.
Until then, have a nice evening

I've been scrapping since 2004 and enjoy OTP, cardmaking and scrapping LO's as well.... as well as a few other crafts when I have the time.

Here is Sarah's blog. Check out her gorgeous stuff.
I live in Western Australia with my hubby and 2 teenage boys.When I am not cardmaking, I work part-time as an Education Assistant with delightful 4 and 5 year olds- I get paid to play with paint and playdough and glue and paper!
I also teach card classes several times a month at a local scrapbook store . Stamping is my passion- I try to stamp everyday, and it is unusual to find me without inky fingers. I love trying new techniques with ink and stamps. I keep an inspiration journal to jot down ideas for colours, layouts, wish lists, product names etc. It is full of sketches that I use as a springboard for the many cards I make.
The thing I love about stamping and card making is that I get to give a little bit of myself to others, and that always makes them feel special. I enjoy being part of the arty online community for the friendship and inspiration we share daily. I hope to inspire you to experiment with different mediums on your cards, and have fun doing it.
Here is Sarah's take on the July sketch
She has used distress inks and water on white card for my backgrounds and Bazzill cardstock. The stamp is by Paper Inspirations. Love it Sarah. Love the technique you have used and the effect it has created.
Now I cannot wait to introduce my next DT member. But I will wait for a couple of hours before I do that.Don't go away

I'm a wife and mother of 3 wonderful kids.I live in Perth Western Australia. My background with crafts is mostly with cottage craft though I did dabble with paper tole also.I love to scrapbook which I have been doing for just over 2 years now which I guess is what has led me into cardmaking.I love to create and I need to keep my hands busy..I do a lot of fine cutting.and layering.I like to think outside of the square and hopefully oneday I'll be able to create fully out there also!!I'm hoping I can inspire you, if, just a little, to be free and create!

What a gorgeous card! Awesome work.
