Just Add Ink #238 Just add a sketch

Hello and welcome to a new Just Add Ink challenge!

Before I get to tell you about the new challenge we have some news to share. One of our team - Mae Collins - has decided to step down from the design team. Mae has been with the team since June 2010. She has made wonderful contributions both creatively and administratively to the DT. Many of us have had the pleasure of spending time with Mae at SU! conventions (and hope to do so again in the future). Mae we'll miss you!

Now onto this week we have a sketch (designed by me) to get you inspired - it's versatile  - you can make it CAS or embellish it up. Most importantly have fun with it - hope you can join us this week!



It's the last challenge of the month so that means it's our "Guest Designer"challenge week. So, if you are interested, all you need do is play along with the challenge this week!

 (The details: For the last challenge of each month, we will be offering the "TOP PICK" for that week, the opportunity to join us as a "Guest Designer" for the last challenge the following month....If this sounds like something you would like to do, get creating and come join us at Just Add Ink.)


Here is what the Design Team have come up with this week to provide you with inspiration...

Amy White - Guest Designer
