September Sketch Challenge

Hello and welcome to 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown.  The aim of our weekly challenges is to make sure you have a good stash of cards ready in time for Christmas.  We have a fantastic Design Team all providing inspirational cards based on our weekly theme.  This month our hostess is Asha and she's starting us off with this fabulous sketch.

We also have a sponsor supporting us this month - Deedee's Digis - and some of the team will be using digi images on their cards.

We are looking forward to seeing what you make with the sketch - use any technique, colours, products - but keep it CHRISTMAS.   Here are some wonderful makes by the DT to inspire you:

Please make sure you follow these rules when you play along with us here at 52CCT! :)
  • Please read the challenge requirements carefully before creating your card.  We will never delete any submissions that do not follow our challenge rules; however, only cards that meet the requirements will be considered by the Design Team for our weekly Top Honours and Honourable Mention voting.
  • Please link back to our blog in your post so that others can join in the fun.
  • We would love it if you added our button to the side of your blog.
  • Please make sure to link to your POST, not your blog.
  • Please make sure NOT to back link.  Your card must not have been posted to your blog before the date of this challenge.
  • In order to be considered for Top Honour or Honourable Mention, you must link up by Friday at 6.00pm GMT.
  • You are free to combine this challenge with up to 10 other challenges.
  • We'd really appreciate it if you'd turn off word verification so that we can comment more easily!  We know a lot of you do this for safety, but it takes a very long time to comment when verification is activated, and you may lose your comments from us ... just sayin'! ;)


  1. Thank you for the challenge and sketch. Lovely cards by the design team

  2. So glad Deedee was sponsoring this challenge!! Here images rock and I'm so honored being her guest designer this month!!

  3. I am excited about your card ideas. It would be so much fun crafting. Would love to add them on my Pinterest board. Despite the numerous digital cards, I may say I am still a fan of handmade Christmas cards . God bless you in all you do!
