November Sketch - Take 2

Hi everyone, it's Lynda here and I'd just like to show another card I made using this month's sketch and also the scraps left over from my first card. Hope you like it.

I'd also like to take this opportunity to thank Kathy, Bev and Jackie for asking me to join this great little team and to introduce myself properly.

I've been card making now for about 4 or 5 years and I'm absolutely addicted to it. At first I attended local crafting classes getting to know the ins and outs of stamping, embossing, die cutting etc. You name it I wanted to try it. I was amazed at just how much you could actually do with paper and glue lol. I started my blog nearly a couple of years ago when the lovely Kirsty Wiseman asked me to join her Design Team and it's just snowballed since then. I'm also on the Design Team for Daring Cardmakers, Craftwork Cards and now Kathy's Waffle Sketch File.

I've always crafted one way or another all of my life - knitting, crocheting, tapestry, rug making, pressed flowers, dough craft - just to name a few but my major passion before card making was pottery. I had my own little workshop and produced decorative pottery which I sold at local craft fairs. When clay work became too heavy I had to find something else to do and I'm so glad I found paper and glue. The rest they say 'is history'.

November 2010: Corner Detail

A huge great big WELCOME to our newest designer here on the Sketch File.
We're really lucky to have Lynda, of Lynda Loves Crafting fame joining our little team. Always inspiring and always super-creative, we know it'll be a treat to see Lynda's work on the blog.

Thanks to those who shared their creations last month - please help us spread the word about the sketches you find here as we'd love to see more people using them - and of course, lots more links in our links lists!
Here is the sketch for November, followed closely by the projects the team have made using it. remember anything goes - ATCs, cards, inchies, twinchies, book covers, scrap pages - it all counts so just make whatever you fancy then come back and let us know where we can see it.

We'll be keeping an eye on the things you share and adding your links to the sidebar. We're also hoping to add more of the things we make ourselves using this sketch as the month goes on - so please come back and check from time to time.
We'd love it if you'd add us to your links lists and "following" lists - that way you'll be kept up to date for when new updates appear on here
