It's a Deconstructed Sketch Blog Hop!!

It's a Deconstructed Sketch Vacation Blog Hop! Jen is on vacation this week so she thought it would be fun to mix things up a bit this week and have a blog hop. And you know what a blog hop means... that's right PRIZES!! For this blog hop there will be TWO prizes, one for one very lucky commenter and one for one very lucky randomly drawn participant in the sketch challenge.

So what do you need to do? Well, hop around to all the design team blogs and leave a comment. The list is below so you can hop in your own order. Very easy! Second, take a look at the sketch and make a project using the sketch as creative inspiration, post it online (blog or gallery) and link it back to the InLinkz on Jen's blog. Again, very easy!! On June 27th, 2011 Jen will announce the winner of the comment prize on her blog. The winner of the sketch participation prize will be announced on June 30th along with the next sketch.

So what are the prizes? Well Jen has kept that a secret so you will need to take a trip to her blog to find out what the prizes will be! But they are sure to be BIG!

For my sample this week I wanted to share a card that I made for my Dad. It was actually his Father's Day card but it could be used for any occasion. You can personalize it any way you wish or leave that element off completely. I used my new Springhtly Sprockets dies from Spellbinder along with this paper I found in the Tattered Time matstack by DCWV. I tend to struggle with masculine cards and love the way this one turned out. What do you think??

Recipe:
Paper: Neenah Classic Crest Solar White CS, Black Bazzill CS, Tattered Time DP (DCWV); Sentiment: Dad (Computer Generated); Tools: Springhtly Sprockets (Spellbinders), Corner Rounder, Circle Punches; Other: Twill (PTI), Metal Dots, Foam Tape


Here's this weeks FUN sketch designed by Jen!!
