Cardabilities & Sketchabilities

Cardabilities and Sketchabilities is owned by Karan Gerber and both sites are her  pride and joy.  Please visit both challenge sketch website to be inspired with gorgeous designs by her design teams.  This is an international sketch site that is well established and visited by designers throughout the world.

I have joined in both sketch challenges this month and would like to give a shout out to the new chipboard company called Creative Embellishments.

Be sure to visit Creative Embellishments on FB and their website to see all the newest and latest chipboard design's that they have to offer.  My order of chipboard is on the delivery truck, so I was not able to showcase the chippies from Creative Embellishments site; next time for sure.

Cardabilities Sketch # 84

As you can see, I wanted to change it up a bit for Halloween and decided on "PINK" and black for  Truly give the  Halloween season a jolt of pink!

I am playing along with this pink card at the RCC #86 Halloween challenge at Ribbon Carousel.

Sketchabilities Sketch # 100

I am also playing along with the international website site  "Scrap Around the World".
This website is owned by Helen Tilbury and she has designers from all around the world design gorgeous works of art. 
Here is this months mood board challenge.
I choose the pinks, white and blue color tones from this mood board.    Be sure to visit SATW and be sure to visit some of the designers blogs for truly inspirational designed artwork.  You will enjoy the journey.
