Hello and welcome to Stuck on U Sketches! If this is your first visit here, we hope that you are inspired and will become a "regular." We have lots of exciting things happening! If you come every week, then we are especially grateful for your participation!! You have helped to make our challenge blog successful! This is going to be a bit of a long post, so grab a cup of something and enjoy ..
Today is the first Wednesday in December (eeegads .. ?? December already??), so that means that today is our Card Reveal Day. And since this is the month of December, then there are probably lots of you crafters that are working on holiday cards, am I right? Soooo, here is your chance to use an Original SOUS sketch and join in the fun .. maybe even make the Top 3!
Here is our Card Sketch this time made by our own Sandi Clarkson. So many possibilities! We can't wait to see your entries!
Now, for some fun stuff! Before we show you what the DT has done with the sketch this time, we want to introduce you to our 4 new Card team designers. They have each written a bit about themselves.
"Hi, I am Lizzy Crust. I am married and have 4 wonderful children. I fell in love with scrapbooking in 2006 and have enjoyed learning more and creating since then. Several years ago I discovered the whole new world of sites on the Internet. This year I have found a new love of making cards, challenges and then in August of 2010, I created a blog to join in with card challenges along the way. I am excited to be joining this team and hope to make mane new friends!"
"My name is Andrea Ockey Parr and I"m a former junior high English teacher, an eternal librarian and I currently work in the field of medical laboratory science (I think I just triggered a Nerd Alert somewhere)! But my true passion is crafting and writing and being artsy. Cards, paper projects and 3D mixed media pieces are my forte and I have a whimsical style in which I love to layer different elements and incorporate stitching, fabric, ephemera, stamped images and anything else I can find. If my cards are too thick to fit into an envelope, I consider it a success! In my family life, I have the most wonderful parents in the universe who make every failure feel like it isn't one and I have a superhero older brother who taught me to not throw like a girl. I'm married to the man of my dreams who built me a craft room and doesn't think I'm weird for staring at the same piece of paper for two hours straight. I love my life and I love red phone booths and orange juice, probably in that order."
"Hello, my name is Margie Calenda and I am a wife, mother, grandmother, mother-in-law, friend and die-hard CRAFTER! I bundle it all together and call it "LIFE". My days are busy, busy, busy and I never know what I'll be doing from one day to the next, but whenever I have free time, I spend it in my craft room. I started crafting around 9 years ago, when my oldest daughter was making her wedding plans and I haven't stopped since then. My passion is card making, but I do enjoy to mix it up every now and then with a layout, home decor project or goodies for my grandchildren's classes. I am thrilled to be a part of the SOUS Design Team and my hope my is that I will inspire you to get your hands dirty and start creating!"
