August 1 Card Sketch and Guest Designers

We are so excited to start the month with only our second Card Sketch,
and our first full month with these challenges!
We hope that soon these will become part of your challenge line up
to play along with! Thanks to those that did join and viewed
our projects. 

Hopefully you all are enjoying the last few weeks of Summer as
school will be starting soon enough for many of the kiddo's out there!
Well, Summer really isn't over til the end of September, right?
So plenty of time to enjoy the warmth (some have had way too much
warmth this season though) and finished those seasonally inspired
crafting projects before our thoughts turn to pumpkins and black cats
(if they haven't already!)

Today we want to share a Guest Designer for our card sketch,
a great friend and past designer for us, Debbie Burns
Thank you very much for sharing this design with us today.
Make sure to stop by her blog, you will not want to miss a thing there!

Also, for the month of August for our Card Challenges we have a Guest Designer.
We are thrilled to have Clare Fordham with us for the month.
Her designs are incredible with wonderful stamped images, bold coloring and
fun details. We are very sure you'll love her as much as we do!

Hi, my name is Clare and I am a self confessed stampaholic, well actually I am pretty obsessed with anything to do with papercrafting. In 2004 I decided to turn my obsession into more than just a hobby and opened my paper craft shop in Horncastle, Lincolnshire 'Cloudnine Crafts'. I am very lucky to be surrounded by beautiful stuff every day but believe me like everyone I also suffer from crafters block and even with a shop full I never have the right paper, ribbon, flowers etc. I am lucky enough to be a part of 2 wonderful design teams and have worked with some amazing crafters along the way who have inspired me and helped me develop my own style. I was thrilled to be asked to be Guest Deisgner for SOUS for the month of August, so good luck with the challenge and happy crafting!
Big Hugs, Clare xx
