CLP Sketch Challenge BIRTHDAY BLOG HOP!! May 1st - 6th. - Come Join Us! :)

Wooohooo! We're having a Birthday Blog Hop celebration on the CLP Sketch Challenge Blog!
Not only are we heading into our second year, - our little CLP DT "family" has also expanded! With the recent DT call held, we now count 12 creative ladies who all want to do our best to inspire you, through the monthly CLP sketch challenges! We love to see you enter with your cards! :)

Through this hop we will show you our newest DT cards - for the May sketch challenge; #36. I hope you will join us in this blog hop!  Hop along, meet all the team members and make sure to leave your comments. One lucky commenter will win the Grand Prize of a $30 gift voucher from Gurlee Girl Craft Store. This Grand Prize is hidden somewhere along the hop. For your best chance at winning, make sure to leave a comment on all the designers' blogs and the final comment on the blog hop post on the CLP challenge blog. The winner will be chosen at random and will be announced on May 7th.


May 1st 2011 marks my one year as a DT member with this wonderful CLP team!! Can you believe it, another year has gone by - swoosh!!... :) It's been a real pleasure and joy working with such sweet ladies with enormous talent in paper crafting! The add up of members only makes it more fun!

I love working with your sketches, Chelsea - and you're the sweetest person! :) It's such a pleasure being on your team - and I'm sure I speak on behalf of all the other ladies on the team, too,- when I say this! Your paper crafting art work is always so eyecatching and stunning - and all the hard work you do with the beautiful layout work for both sketches and blog all over!!... I must not forget your adorable Gurlee Girl stamp designs either! Wow! It's awesome how you just beautify everything! I love your eye for details. Thank you so much for the trust in having me on your team! Warm hugs sent your way on this very day! :))

Now, onto my card:

I'm sorry the photo comes out blurry in the size shown... If you click it, though, it gets a bit better. :) I have used a Sweet Art Ebony image designed by Elisabeth Bell and coloured it with distress inks. DPs from MME. 

I'm waiting for spring in full bloom!! It's such a joy being indoors colouring in images like these, on chilly days with sleet. That's exactly the weather we had, the day I coloured this in.

I hope you will have a wonderful month of May, wherever you are in this world! :)

Here's the sketch for the current sketch challenge :
