SMC Sketch Challenge - Spring

Please note: I have two blog posts for today. Please check them both out! Thank you!

It's time for another Sew Many Cards Challenge!

Sew Many Cards is honored to have Cornish Heritage Farms as the sponsor of the challenge.

Cornish Heritage Farms (CHF) is owned & run by Richard & Liz Pomeroy. Why the name? Richard & Liz are originally from Cornwall, England hence the Cornish Heritage & the 'Farms' is the 100 acre farm in north central Montana where they live & where all the stamps are manufactured.

Richard & Liz believe in producing a high quality product so all the stamps are deeply etched, red rubber. CHF is a diverse stamp company in the fact that it consists of a variety of different licenses & styles, ranging from very detailed (Thomas Kinkade) to simple line art (Tom Fun Collection) therefore offering something for everyone.

The Cornish Heritage Farms sponsor prize package features three new release stamp sets. These can be seen on the Sew Many Cards Challenge blog. The blog also gives the details of the challenge, including some samples by the design team and information on how to participate. Be sure to check it out and play along, too!

This week the challenge is to create a Spring card using the following sketch:

What does SPRING mean to me? It means warmer temperatures, sun bonnets, and flowers.

This little lady is all decked out in her beautiful spring hat and pearls. She is just too too cute!

I embellished the card with some delightful paper flowers (they're from the bridal section at Michael's) and some pearls to match Halen's necklace.

Now, how about playing along with this week's Sew Many Cards Sketch challenge, showing us wht Spring means to you. It's going to be fun!
