Creative Card Crew Sketch

I had a lovely 'girly night' with my daughter last night - so, no crafting and no post yesterday. I think we all need a little break now and again, don't we? However, I'm back today with the Creative Card Crew Challenge. This week it is my turn to set the challenge so I've given you all this sketch to work from. I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Also, I'd like to extend a big welcome to Joey, who joins us for her first week on the design team. Great to have you on board Joey. Also a big welcome goes to Nicola, who is joining us as guest designer for the next month. If you haven't visited Joey or Nicola I would recommend having a look at their blogs because their work is wonderful.

On to my cards for my sketch. Yes, I was greedy and made 2 cards this week.

Here's my cute one:

And here's a more striking monochrome one:


Cute Card: Penny Black Kickin', Basic Grey Two Scoops Heart Smudge and Clare Curd's signature range sentiments
Monochrome Card: Hampton Art - Dream, Creative Expressions Oasis

All other bits were from my stash

Hope you'll find time to join in the fun this week.

Two stunning cards Sharon, I love them both for different reasons.
Your cutie sure is that and those papers are gorgeous with this little guy lazing in his hammock enjoying his glass or two of ¿Sangria? just like me hehe - such beautiful detail.
Wowzers your monochromatic card is so elegant and I must admit my favourite - I really enjoyed working with your wonderful sketch. Thank you.

These are gorgeous Sharon! This looks like a fun sketch, hope to play along, we're leaving on vacation for May! I'll have access to a craftroom part of the time, lol, I'm sure I'll be going through withdrawal if I don't keep crafting!
Blessings, Maria
