Dec 9 ~ Original Sketch ~ and new DT member!

Happy Friday, everyone! Wow, it's already the second Friday of December! The holidays will be here before we know it! So, let's try and get some scrapping in, shall we? Layouts are always a great gift idea for those hard-to-buy for parents and grandparents!  

We are very excited this week to present another original SOUS sketch. This one was done by myself (Sandi) and I was so pleased with the way it turned out. This was actually my very first digitally-designed sketch and 'm happy to report that they have become very addicting. I have already designed 4 more! There will be another one later this month plus, I have March's all done as well! So, enough about that!

This week we are very proud to anounce a new addition to our sketch team. We are sure that many of you already know her! Please welcome our friend and now colleague, Andrea Amu!  Here's a little bio from Andrea herself:

"Hello! My name is Andrea Amu and I am born and raised in Pennsylvania where I live with my fun-loving hubby of 11 years. Scrapbooking has been one of my biggest obsessions since 1997 and now it seems as though I've caught the card making fever too! When I’m not busy being crafty, I can also be found working part-time as a substitute Preschool teacher. I find enjoyment in shopping at craft and antique/junque shops, and collecting Old World stoneware and unique pieces of silver and gemstone jewelry. Currently, I am a designer for Core'dinations Cardstock and I’ve been fortunate to have had my designs published in Memory Makers publications, Northridge Publishing Media’s CARDS, CREATE, Simply Handmade and Cricut magazines, Paper Crafts, Pinecone Press, and Blue Media and Quarry books. I am really glad to now be a part of the Stuck On U Sketches Design Team and I look forward to much inspiration along the way."

Here is Andrea's take on our sketch:
