Sketchy Thursdays, Copics, & {ippity}

Happy Saturday, everyone!  Hope you had a nice New Year's Day!! 

Today over on Sketchy Thursdays we're bringing you a new Second Chance Challenge.  Since we've had such awesome response to our card sketch challenges, I'm bringing you another one:


Ooh, take a squint at the upper left corner of that sketch.  Do ya see it?  Here, let me make it a little bigger for you...

Yeppers!  That baby says, "Sketchy Thursdays by Heidi"!!!!!!!  I can finally legitimately say "our sketches"!!!  This is my first sketch.  I'm nervous.  Hope you like it.  (You'll tell me if it stinks, right?  Seriously.  Tell me.  Definitely not Diana-caliber, a bit flat perhaps, but my sketch and Photoshop skills can only get better from here, right? LOL.)

Anyhoo, pop on over to the Sketchy Thursdays blog to take a gander at what some of the design team made with this sketch for your inspiration.


January 2011 issue



Just had to make something with one of my new rockin' {ippity} stamps.  The adorable heart is from the Because of You set.  (Click here to see the entire {ippity} line I have available for order.)


Had to break out my BBF the sewing machine again.  The "ruffles" are made of paper that I dampened a bit and crumpled up, then stitched on. 
So, of course, we don't bring you challenges on Sketchy Thursdays without awesome prizes! 

Woohoo!  Go iCopic.com!  They've been such a generous sponsor!  This is a Copic Ciao Set of 8 Manga Primary Kit Marker + 1 Multiliner Pen  What a great Copic starter set!

So, all you have to do is hook up your card or layout inspired by my sketch to the comments on the iCopic Second Chance Challenge post over on Sketchy Thursdays by 11:59pm EST 1/12 for your chance to win them! 

Have a great weekend!

- Heidi

Details:  Heart stamp from the Because of You {ippity} by Unity set; Sugared patterned paper and rub ons by Basic Grey; K&Co. rhinestones; Stampin' Up! ink; thread.
