This weeks challenge is a card sketch (but you can use it for a layout if you want). It's a wonderful sketch, which i found very versitile. Hop over to Let's Scrap and check out everyones card. There are some wonderful cards already in the gallery.
I had these papers still on my desk from my Challenge for the LS Blog Hop, and because i really love them, i decided to use them for this sketch. The papers are from the BoBunny Mango Luau range. I used my cuttle bug to emboss the chocolate cardstock, but silly me put it through the wrong way! Oh well, still looks ok. I then stamped my bear and saying and used my spellbinders to mount them on the front of the card. I used my Fiskars border punch along the base of the card.
This week's sponsor is Paiselys and Polka Dots . They are suppling a fantastic prize to a random entrant in this weeks sketch competition. So pop on over and check everything out.

I'm so happy that you have decided to join us for the Let's Scrap Happy New Year Blog Hop! For those of you who are new to the site, Let's Scrap is a wonderful group of scrapbookers who encourage and motivate each other in our love for scrapping! New sketches are posted every Wednesday, with sample layouts done by the Design Team to provide inspiration. Members have one week to complete and post their interpretation of the sketch, and one random winner is then selected to win that week's prize provided by many different sponsors.
In addition to the weekly sketch, one of the DesignTeam members posts a challenge every Friday, and there are often special monthly challenges, with chances to win a prize for each challenge entered. Our forum contains tutorials, a place to "toot your horn", hosts a 'Question of the Week' and much, much more. We believe we have one of the friendliest communities of scrappers on the web, and are so glad that you have decided to check us out during our blog hop!
And now, a little bit about this blog hop:
The Let’s Scrap Hoppy New Year Blog Hop starts Friday, Jan.14, 2011 and runs until 11:59 pm central time on Monday, Feb. 14, 2011. That’s right it runs for a whole month. Because it is the New Year we thought it would be fun to name the challenges Resolutions rather then Challenge #1,Challenge #2 etc.
There are 15 Design team, Contributing Design Team and Administrators from Let’s Scrap hosting the blog hop. They will each have a Resolution (challenge) for you to do and a prize that you can win. Also one of the members of the group who doesn’t have a blog is posting a couple of great challenges in the Let’s Scrap Forum and there will be in depth rules and other important information posted in the forum also so make sure to check it all out.
Not only do you have a chance to win a prize for each challenge you enter but if you complete and post an entry for EVERY challenge along the blog hop, by February14, 2011 you're name will be entered into a random drawing for a wonderful prize supplied by Cosmo Cricket
On every blog in the hop you must become a follower and leave alittle love (a comment) for the host.
Just a note: due to the different time zones involved with all the girls on the DT, you might have to wait for some challenges to be posted.
Here is my Challenge Resolution #14 -
You may create a card OR a layout, if you choose a layout, please use a sketch from Let's Scrap. It can be any sketch on the site.
I am doing a numbers Challenge - 1,2,3,4
1 x lace/ribbon
2 x patterned papers
3 x flowers
4 x bling
I have chosen to do a card -
I have used Magnolia Vintage Tilda with roses, and coloured her with copics. I have used my Magnolia Doohickey dies for the swirl and leaves. I have used my spellbinders (fast becoming my favourite item!)
Remember, You must tag your layout correctly in order for it to be entered into the challenge, So my tag would be: Resolution#14 NO space between Resolution and #14
When the hop is finished , I will randomly select one person who completed Resolution#14 to receive an RAK.

After seeing Cabio's Card for the Magnolia-licious Colour Challenge I went looking for some orange and green. Her creation is (as usual) just stunning. Anyway, i found some yummy Bobunny paper, that just seemed perfect. I have used my vintage Tilda with roses, and i used the sketch from The Sweet Stop, it was just perfect.
I am using this card in the following challenges -

Another brilliant sketch by Cheri, to get the old mojo juices flowing. I have used the second page for another layout on Miss Hannah's 3rd Birthday. I have used some beautiful Prima paper, and flowers, some yummy lace from Wild Orchid Crafts. I decided to use my Sitting Angel Tilda and colour her so she was in the same colours as Hannah? (well i tried!)
Head over to Let's Scrap and check out the DT version of the sketch! They are such brilliant ladies, and we have some wonderful prizes up for grabs. This week we have Cori Kozak as our sponsor. Cori is an Independant Stampin Up consultant. Thanks Cori!

Right this is using some yummy Sei Paper i have had for awhile and been wanting to use it. I have used one of Deb's Emerald Faerie Stamps, " Ally & Beeble" Isnt she sweet!! I have coloured her using my copics and i added some fine glitter to her wings. Not sure if you can see that.
I am entering this in the SGC challenge and Bizzy Bec's Challenge.
