October TJ Sketch By Design Blog Hop

Hello Junkies! Welcome to the October Blog Hop showcasing our Design Team's artwork using the By Design sketch and techniques from the October newsletter!

I hope you arrived here from Jane's blog--her card was awesome, wasn't it? If you didn't, please take a minute or two to join us at the beginning of the Hop on the Technique Junkies Design Team Blog so that you don't miss any of the stunning artwork the designers have in store for you!

You too can have an opportunity to participate in this challenge and maybe even with a prize! October is Pat's anniversary month--she's been creating the Technique Junkies Newsletter for 8 years. Wow! Congratulations, Pat!!! To celebrate, Pat will make one lucky winner a TJ Subscriber for life, including all back issues and CD's to fill in the winner's collection.

So how do you enter? First, create a card using the design sketch and follow the directions for entering the contest on Pat's blog. You will need to send Pat your card or share it with the TJ yahoo group or send Pat the web link where your card is posted, and you will need to comment on Pat's blog.

Now for my card.  I used the Faded Texture technique on the bottom panel...quick, easy and fun! The harlequin background stamp on the top panel is from Starving Artistamps, the crows are from I Brake for Stamps, but I'm afraid I've long since forgotten where I got the alphabet stamps.

Hetty is the next stop on the Blog Hop, but here's the entire list just in case you get sidetracked along the way:
