#tgifc142 Sketch Challenge

 It's sketch challenge time, friends!!! This is ALWAYS a fun challenge because it is SO versatile and brings so many different ideas!

 Remember last week when we introduced.....? Well, guess what? We have MORE for you!
 The FABULOUS Dena Rekow!!!

My name is Dena Rekow and I have been paper crafting since 1999, when I decided I wanted an ink pad of a color other than black for use in my classroom (I used to teach High School Biology). I love sharing my creativity and brightening the world with my "happy" one card at a time! I am passionate about crafting and absolutely love teaching people how they can create with stamps, ink and paper! I also love to knit, hang out on the beach and spend time with my husband of 20 years and our two amazing kids and stamp ambassador, Sophie, a golden retriever.


Before we check out our sketch and what our designers have created, we'd like to take a moment to thank you all for playing along with us last week for our color challenge. We'd also like to recognize our winner from last week's challenge - AND IT'S A BACK TO BACK!!!!



Alright, let's take a peek at our sketch and what our designers have come up with!
