Winners For Sketch 293!

The Clean Team has chosen the Princesses for you this week and our hostess Karren has chosen the Queen!


The Queen of Clean: Cindy at Encre, papier, ciseaux


You all handled the curve I threw at you last week wonderfully well!  Cindy's idea to flip the sketch and turn the curve into a swimming pool was inspired and her bright colours, fabulous colouring and sweet images won my vote this week.  Congrats, Cindy!

Please come back tomorrow for a new sketch from Amy!

Freshly Made Sketches #293 - A Sketch by Karren

Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches!  Each week, one member of our design team creates a sketch for you to try, the twist is to keep your project clean-lined and fresh! The "Clean Team" has come up with some "Freshly Made" designs to get you in the spirit! We are so excited to visit you and to see what YOU create with our sketch!

Hi, it's Karren here and this week it's my turn to be hostess and provide the sketch.  I did try and stay away from my usual CAS style and came up with what is, to me, a more challenging sketch.  As you can see from the gorgeous samples from the design team below, you don't have to have the exact same elements as the sketch, so go forth and have some fun!  
We have a few simple rules to keep things fun and fair for all of our players:
  1. Please use any crafting product you would like to use.
  2. Feel free to combine our sketch with up to THREE other challenges, except another sketch challenge.
  3. Please add a DIRECT link to your blog or other online gallery when adding your card to the linky below.  If linking to a public gallery, please use keyword FMS293.
  4. Please include our sketch and a link back to Freshly Made Sketches on your post.
  5. Have fun!
This challenge will end at 3:00 PM EDT on Monday, June 26th. On Tuesday we will announce the winner of this week's sketch challenge who will known as the "Queen of Clean" and each Design Team Member will choose one "Princess".

Winners For Sketch 292!

The Clean Team has chosen the Princesses for you this week and our hostess Cécile has chosen the King!


The King of Clean: Justin at JK Cards




Thanks so very much to everyone who played along with us this week!  I could have picked so many Queens among all these amazing entries. But I have to choose only one, and this week, it's a king.  Justin's card is absolutely stunning, so simple and yet, so striking. There are very few elements but every single one of them is just perfect!  Congratulations Justin!  You are the King of Clean!

Please come back tomorrow for a new sketch from Karren!

Winners For Sketch 290!

The Clean Team has chosen the Princesses for you this week and our hostess Kim has chosen the Queen!


The Queen of Clean: Deanne at Three Trees Paper



Thank you to everybody who played along with the sketch.  It is so amazing to see how many directions you all take the same sketch!  I fell in love with Deanne's ranunculus.  I love the soft faded color on the flower and the leaves.  It works perfectly with the ombre background and the hint of pattern. Adding the banner in vellum is beautiful look.  Congratulations Deanne!  You are the Queen of Clean!

Please come back tomorrow for a new sketch from Jen Brum!

Hey all!  It's Kim - and I created the sketch for this week!  It is funny how sketches happen.  This came about because of a new table runner on my dining room table (I need to hide a long scratch until I can get around to dealing with it). I stood back and studied it and realized two things: #1 the runner was totally the wrong color and #2 there was a sketch in it!!  Have fun! I look forward to seeing what you do with it.

Winners For Sketch 289!

The Clean Team has chosen the Princesses for you this week and our hostess Linda has chosen the Queen!


The Queen of Clean: Kelly at Gingham Girl~




ABC describes our gallery this week for sure - A Beautiful Collection! I enjoyed visiting all of your sites - amazing creations!  I was drawn to Kelly's delightful school themed card right away.  Such a clever use of die cuts and the soft gray background is perfect with the primary colors.  I also love the details like the fence and the American flag.  I would have loved receiving a card like this when I was teaching!  Congratulations Kelly!  You are the Queen of Clean!

Please come back tomorrow for a new sketch from Kim!
