Welcome to the 2nd Sketch Blog Hop. The first hop last month was so popular we decided to do it again!!! The purpose of this hop is to show how all of these talented bloggers can take the same sketch and come up with totally different cards. If you've never used a card sketch before, give it a try! Be sure to check back on Sunday, as there will be some bloggers posting cards on day 2. So sit back & be inspired!

If you  If you just happened on the hop, be sure to go to the first stop so you can see the whole hop!  If you just came from Lynda's Blog, you're in the right spot!  Now, grab your favorite beverage and sit back & hop along with us! 


This was a pretty easy card to put together.  For this card, I challenged myself to use items I already had in my stash.  The papers are by Doodlebug, and they are scraps from other cards I made recently (and posted on my blog).  The poem in the center of the card is something I've had for a looooong time!  I believe it was by My Mind's Eye and that it came from their Tiny Tales collection.  The second picture above is a closeup of the poem, so you can read it better.  You can't tell in the picture, but I pop-dotted the poem to add some dimension to the card.  I also added some stickers to the card that look like they came from a label maker.  I've had those for a while, too!  Lastly, I added some pretty purple twine from the Twinery.  Thanks so much for looking!

Your next stop on the hop is KERI.  Below is the complete blog hop lineup in case you lose your way.  Thanks again for stopping by!
