2. Leave a comment in this post
3. Make a card/LO with the PKS sketch (below), for your submission on OUR blog and link it to your post with Mr. Linky below.

(We have challenges once every two weeks. Most are fairly simple card sketches, but sometimes we throw a wrench in the works, just for fun. We give away a prize at the end of each challenge and the winner is announced at the start of the new challenge. We are a fairly new blog and we like to encourage beginners, so we use to choose our winners).

Here is your sketch for the Blog Hop challenge:

We have a great group of talented designers that graciously extend their time to make cards for us. Vivienne Holden, Lorie Souther, Diane Markle and Sonia Kertznus (currently away). Welcome please, our two guest designers for the blog hop, Emma Aguilar and Lauri Ingram. Thank you so much to all of our designers for their quick thinking and their awesome samples!

Lauri Ingram is a guest designer this week! Lauri used PK-319 Snickerdoodle Happy Elf to make her card. You have to go check it out.. IT SPINS!

Emma Aguilar is also a guest designer and she too is super talented!
Look at her adorable take on this sketch! She used our Monster's n More Faces and one of our Pumpkin Faces.

LOL.. "It's Fall Y'all" is by Diane Markle. Diane made the perfect Fall themed card with a face stamped on the acorn, from one of our Simple Simon's Face Sets.

Viv's beautiful "Cherry Wishes!" card was made using our PK-239 Faceless Fruit. I wonder if she air-brushed the edges of her lighter cardstock with her Copics?
I know I will have to go and read on her post!

Lorie's card floored me with delight!
How amazing our PK-311 Snowmany Thanks looks when done up by this pro!!

Kathy's (that would be me) was made using PK-319 Ice Skating Penguin Couple.
These two look to be skating together in perfect rhythm!

This picture shows what you could win if you follow the the guidelines in our Blog Hop Challenge.
2 pkgs of Doodlecharm 6 x 6 cardstock packs, 4 Peachy Keen Stamps packages & an acrylic block!

Your next stop is Practical Scrappers. Have fun!

Thanks again for visiting and good luck to all that enter! We are so happy to be a part of this BLOG HOP!!
