Sketch Challenges

Global Design Project #GDP030

Hello,

Happy Monday!! I hope you had a fabulous weekend!! We sure did, it was filled with going out for dinner as a family, some exciting shopping..I finally ordered my new desk from Ikea for my craft room ( it is Tuesday already?), watching movies and lots of stamping! Yes, I`m so excited that I finally stamped and can't wait to show you what I created!!

As you know that I LOVE playing along with sketch challenges and finally had time to play with this week's Global Design Project #GDP030. This week's sketch was designed my friend Teneale Williams from Australia! I love her sketches they are always stunning!!

I decided to play with the new A Nice Cuppa Bundle. This set is perfect for creating projects for any occasions! You could use it for birthdays, thank you, retirements, congratulations and so much more.

I stamped my tea cup in Melon Mambo and die cut it out with the matching framelit and big shot machine. I love when you can stamp an image and then cut it out with the coordinating framelits and big shot machine!! Easy Peasy and you get a clean cut!!

Wondering where the scallops came from? They are from the Cutie Pie thinlits. I love when you find other uses for your framelits other then what they were meant for!!

Now it's your turn to play along with this week's challenge. You can head over the the Global Design Project website to check out all their challenges and while you are there check out the gallery for this sketch. There are lots of amazing projects up there!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
