Anything but Birthday!

Well the fact that it's the first Saturday of September can mean only one thing for us Mums in England......Nearly back to school time!!  Is it just me who's looking forward to that???  It also means the start of Sketchy September.....Every week through September we're giving you an optional sketch to work with if you wish.  Just for a little extra fun!

Our challenge this week, picked by the very lovely Zoe is to make anything....EXCEPT a birthday card.  There are so many options, I'm sure you'll not be stuck for ideas & if you are....just check out our gorgeous inspiration cards!  We're sponsored for September by the lovely Heather Ellis who generously gave us some of her super sweet images to play with & is giving 3 images to the lucky winner.  You'll see some of these images showcased over the month.  This week's sponsor is Tiffany Doodles who has some fabulous images in her shop & is offering a choice of 5 to the lucky winner, so go check out both these wonderful artists.

And finally....We're looking for a few new members for our team:  Have you ever thought of being on a design team?  You don't need to have any experience of DT work, but you do need to be able to commit to the next 4 months.  You MUST be willing to make a stamped card on alternate weeks for the challenge, be able to comment every week on allocated entries to our challenge & be willing to work with provided sponsor images when required (other times you are free to use images of your choice).  Sense of humour an advantage lol!  If you're interested please either add DT after your entry or e.mail Fi & Abi directly using the address in the sidebar giving a link to your blog.  The DT call will close at midnight (BST) Thursday 22nd September.  If you ensure we have an e.mail for you we will contact you to let you know our decision.  Good Luck!

Here's this weeks optional sketch courtesy of Vicky & some inspiration from the team.

We're delighted to welcome September's Guest designer Wendy
