Sketches! Guest Designer: Kim Sonksen

I am so excited to announce this weeks Sketches! Guest Designer is:

KIM SONKSEN



I have been crafting since I was a wee toddler but only starting getting into making me own cards around 2001/2002 when a co-worker introduced me to this addictive hobby. Soon, the house was filled with punches, peel-offs and stamps and my little creations even sold quite well on Ebay. In 2004 I crossed over to the "dark side" and ventured into the worlds of Scrapbooking rather than card making and am still as obsessed with it as I was on the day when I put my first layout together. Lately I have rekindled my love for card making and I was tickled pink when I was asked to GDT for Sketches! By Tamara. I love working with sketches and making them "mine" by just using parts of the sketches as seen. Generally my cards tend to take a life of their own as I can't stop adding to them. Hopefully I am able to inspire you a little with my take on Sketch 69 - I had great fun using it! If you like, come by my personal blog http://kimsonksen.typepad.com and have a look around. See what I create for Scrap-Art-Zine, SYC, We Kit You Not and Upsy Daisy Designs.


Thank you very much to Tamara and her team for having me as GDT - I am totally excited about it!



I asked Kim to choose a Card Sketch to work with and she chose Sketch #69.

And here is her card using the Sketch.
