Week 51 Amanda's Sketch

Hello all, it's my (Amanda) turn again to set your theme this week and I have gone with a sketch. It's not a fancy computer generated one as I have not a clue how to make them! So hand drawn it is, and I hope you will have fun with it. I have kept it simple (a bit like me! haha!)

We have a new sponsor this week:

Over the coming months Allsorts have some fabulous Guest Designers joining us from some of your favourite companies and stores. May is our Birthday month and we have some real treats lined up for you and to help us celebrate this special month we would like to intruduce our Guest Designer for May, the very talented Elizabeth Allan from Penny Black. This is what they have to say:

Penny Black Inc's rubber stamps in wood mounted, transparent and cling, plus stickers and papers are widely recognised throughout the craft industry. Their beautiful designs and innovative style is captured in everything from whimsical to elegant. Elizabeth had been with the company for four years and as a member of their design team her artwork is incorporated into catalogue design, website posting and she also travels for the company demonstrating and teaching in their booths at conventions.

As an independent artist, Elizabeth who lives with her husband Scott in Michigan, began teaching class in 2003 while working full time in the accounting industry. In 2005 her love of art inspired her to pursue her passion full time and soon after she joined Penny Black. She is a published artist and her work can regularly be found in well known and respected publications worldwide. You can find more of Elizabeth's work on the Gallery and Card Ideas section of the Penny Black web site and also their Blog. Here is her beautifully coloured card for this weeks challenge uing Penny Black stamps 4048K, 4058J and 30-014:
