Hi everyone! Today is the FIRST challenge for Pink INK Sketch Challenges and to celebrate our grand "opening," we're kicking things off with a blog hop! I'm the first stop so if you're hopping along, you're in the right place. If you lose your way, I have a list of the hop participants at the bottom of this post or you can also find it on the Pink INK Sketch Challenges Blog.
Oh, and you can also find us on Facebook HERE if you fancy the social networking thing :)
For our first sketch, we would like you to use this lovely sketch by Jane:
We have FIVE generous sponsors for you this week which means FIVE different chances to win prizes!! Here are our wonderful sponsors for this week:
So on to my cards! I created three cards for this challenge and was a bit flexible with the sketch, but the elements are still there (I hope you see them). At first, I thought only Tickled Pink Stamps was sponsoring, then we added on Whiff of Joy and also Whimsy Stamps so since I work for all of them, I didn't want to be biased so I used products from all three companies. It was really fun making these cards! It's probably because Jane's sketch is so versatile, but I created these three in about an hour and a half. Granted, two of the images were already colored, but still, I don't think that's bad at all :)

I think this Tickled Pink card turned out the best :) I'm also entering it into the Pink Lady DT call, though I think my chances are slim since there's so much talent already in the pool. If you haven't heard about the call, you can read all about it HERE and maybe give it a shot too :)
