Challenge #11 Two Quirky Sketches!

Welcome back everyone to another Quirky Crafts Challenge. This one has been set by me, Lyn (Spyder) so I hope loads of you will come and join in. It's easy, so there's no excuse! It's a fortnightly challenge so there's plenty of time!
I usually choose a sketch so I won't disappoint, I've not only chosen a sketch this time too, but with a little twist, I have two sketches for you! You can do them both or just chose to do one. Don't forget we love to see your cards but also welcome any kind of craftiness! ATC's, Fat Pages, Scrapbook Pages, Inches, Tags, Altered Art, whatever (as long as you use at least one of the sketches)!! We want to see what you can do!!
You can enter the challenge as many times as you like. You may flip or turn the sketches, we don't mind just as long as we can see you've followed them. Told you it was easy!
We have a fabulous sponsor for this Challenge, which means prizes!
The winner of the Design Team Choice will win a Quirky Guest Designer place, a winners badge and...
Any 3 sets from

The Public Voted winner will also be asked to join us as a Guest Designer and have a winners Badge for their sidebar.
Here are some fantastic examples from our latest Guest Designers for this challenge and of course as always, from Cazzy, Dianne, Caro, and me! Please pop over and visit our blogs, there's always something to see and of course you'll always find a weekly freebie on my blog!

Guest Designer Dawn used the It's About That Time Set from our sponsor with the first sketch to make this stunning monochrome card, see more images on her blog.

Guest Designer Lisa used the One Spring Day set from our sponsor with the second sketch to make this fun card full of 3d flowers.

Cazzy used One Spring Day images for this spring showers card.

Has used the first sketch and the tree from the 'One Spring day ' set 7 for this Welcome Spring card, coloured the tree herself and used a sentiment from 'One Spring Day,coloured' set 2.
has made a scrapbook page using the first sketch with a collage of flower photos from her garden and elements from the One Spring Day set from our sponsor.

I've made three cards. On this card I've used the 'It's about the Time, Clocks' set from our sponsors along with the second sketch
I've used the same 'Clocks' in the second card and the same sketch, but have added 'It's About That Time, Big Circles' cut out using Nesties and Woodware punches and placed the clock over itUsing the first sketch on this New Home card, Lyn used the tree from the 'One Spring Day, Coloured' set

That's what we've done, so now it's your turn! Look forward to seeing what you come up with!
