I made a new challengeblog and some candy

This post will stay on top untill Monday oct. 13th


xoxoxoxoxo


Remember I challenged myself to make 1 x-mas and 1 b-day card each week.
Well so far I've completed them all. But with all my other posts I'm losing track of them.
And as you all know I'm posting a sketch every Friday.
Starting today I'm combining those two in a new challengeblog called: christmas and birthdaycards.
Every Monday I'm posting a sketch for you to follow. Only christmas and birthdaycards are allowed.
There will be a small price drawn on every first Monday of the month. Everybody that enters more than 2 times each month will be in the drawing.

Here's my first card for the blog.





Card details:
Cardstock: Bazzill
Papers: free downloads from Summertimedesigns
Stamp: Bella, sentiment from Scrappy cat
Technique; watervolourpencils and waterpen
Embellishments Faux Dew Drops and buttons from our local market.

WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO DO:

IF YOU ENTER THE FIRST CHALLENGE YOU GET A EXTRA ENTRY.
YOU CAN ENTER THIS CANDY UNTILL MONDAY OCT. 13TH.


Have a nice evening,
xoxo Karin

Thank you for this new great challenge!
I am always short of birthday cards and make them in the last half of a minute :)

I love this first sketch, it's an easy one and many various combinations and embellishments can be used.
I will be making a card for sure and post it on your newly opened blog (I've already linked to it on my page).

Oooh I would love to win this awesome blog candy so I am off to post your info on my blog right now. I just love your bella birthday card-I have about 40 bellas and they are so much fun. I signed up as one of your followers just so I can try your challenges. I'm not very good at them but I love the idea of having birthday cards on hand so maybe this will motivate me.

Hi Karin, I posted last night about 3:00 a.m. with my take on your sketch challenge but I didn't give you the excat spot on my blog where I had inserted my card. I thought this might help since I put it in with the post about your blog candy...so here is the actual post with my take on your sketch. Thanks again for a chance to win.
