sketch challenge.....which leads me to my announcement today.
I've been asked, along with my dear friends Korin and Holly, to take over the challenge hosting duties for the Sketch Challenge over on Splitcoaststampers! I'm really excited (and completely honored) to take on this responsibility. My first official week hosting will be next Wednesday, and I hope everyone can join me! Roxie, the fabulous hostess for the past SIX years, made the announcement today, so I wanted to get started playing along with the sketches.
Additionally, the weekly Inspiration Challenge I host over in the Sweet 'n Sassy Member company forums is moving from Tuesdays to Wednesdays as of today. This week's picture is of a scrumptious living room (true confession: my living room is the same color brown, also with a cream couch!!) that has gorgeous pillows on it. I was inspired by the pillow that had a brown branch with red berries to make this anniversary card for hubby's grandparents, and I managed to work in the sketch (albeit flipped on its side). That's like a triple combo card!!
