Challenge #18 - A Sketch

Thank you to everyone who joined in with last weeks challenge :-)

Today I have heard of the passing of one of our HM challenge participants. All of the team including myself wanted to do a tribute or something in honour of Joanne. As Carolyn has said on her blog.........'Heaven has gained the sweetest and most loving of Angels. She spread love not only through her cards, but through her beautiful blog posts and the comments she left behind. I will miss her greatly!!!'. Our thoughts and prayers are with Joanne's family and friends at this sad time. xxx

This weeks challenge is in memory of Joanne and we hope as many of you as possible will be able to join in.

Our challenge this week is :~ A Sketch and a kind thought!!
With this sketch you can flip it, shrink it, rotate it, twist it etc but you MUST be able to see the original sketch in your work.

The kind thought..........The Johnson family has requested the following on Joannes blog...........Joanne spread much joy through her card making. If you would like to do something in memory of her, we are sure she would like you to send a card to someone in need.

Please make your card based on the sketch and send it to someone in need. The DT had already made there cards before we heard this sad news therefore we will all be joining in and sending a card to someone in need.

Here's what our lovely DT have produced and don't forget to check out their blogs for more details!

This it the first time I am entering the house mouse challenge. I am new to blogland so i have never met Joanne, this is a lovely way for you to pay tribute to her though. You are obviously very caring and thoughtful to do this in her memory. I send my commiserations to those of you who knew her.
You can see my card here

I finally got a bit of time to work on my sketch challenge, but it's looking like it's over already. I'm sorry I missed it - first one I've missed. I'll try to get in on it next week. Love the cards y'all came up with.

Rica said...

I'm here at last. I found this a very difficult card to do. Because it is in memory of Joanne, no matter what I did it was never going to be good enough.
Here it is
