Seems a Little Sketchy Sketch 17 Challenge from AiFactory

Our sponsor for this next challenge is AiFactory and they have such cute digital designs!  We were lucky enough to choose 2 groups from their store to make our cards from~such fun!
The first one I chose

was "Little Cowboy digital set" and for your little cowpoke, this set comes loaded with a frame, cactus, star, hat, rope,the Cowboy, etc.  So it's nice to have so many combinations to put together on your cards or layouts.  I used lots of my western papers and had such fun with this boyish 6x6 card using this SALS sketch #17 as a template.  The accents on this are the hemp lasso, the stitched mat, and the buttons.
Then I couldn't turn down the chance to use the very pretty digital, Ella Ballerina, using the same sketch. It's nice to get such a totally different look!  I love the use of the renaissance Spellbinder die-makes the cut so lacy and feminine-thanks to a dear friend that gave this item to me out of the kindness of her heart. I love the use of the buttons (of course, it's me!), primas, dew drops, stitching and butterflys.

Thanks for checking out all the neat ideas that AiFactory has given us to work with and get into the Challenge and win some nice prizes!  Carolyn


  1. These are both darling Carolyn. Glad you found use for that beautiful lacey die too!

    1. Absolutely-I love that die!! Thanks for the sweet remarks!

  2. These are just wonderful! Very fun and graceful!

  3. Hiya Carolyn,

    The only thing I can think is that you've not copied the full HTML info which is why it isn't working. Try again making sure it copies the whole thing (I've done this myself in the past when it's only copied half of it!)

    If you still find it doesn't work when you add a gadget as a HTML/javascript then please let me know - I've just tested it on my own blog and it was fine! Hugs Paula. x

    1. Paula it must be your magic! I tried it again and it worked-I'm so PLEASED to have this honored banner on my blog! Thanks for the help! Must have been too tired when I tried it the first time!

  4. These are both GREAT cards! My fav (only because I'm partial to the west) is the cowboy. May have to get that set! I too like the lacey border on the ballerina card. Very cute image. Reminds me of my granddaughters! Might just have to get that one too! Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such a nice comment:)

  5. Carolyn, both of your cards are so stinking cute! Love them!
