ICS52 ~ Busy Beauties Boutique

Did you all see the magnificent creations using last weeks sketches. OMG they are just phenomenal. Thanks to each of you for making ICSketches your inspiration pick up. We really enjoy seeing what you all can do with the sketches each week. THANKS!

Busy Beauties Boutique aka owner Carolyn is our lovely sponsor this week. They also sponsored the Design Team with some amazing images.

Here's a little about: Busy Beauties is the brainstorm of two friends who wanted to create fun images that were reasonably priced & a joy to create with. After many late night conversations, we finally decided to make this dream a reality…and here we are. Hopefully, you will find exactly what you are looking for & will enjoy playing with our images. In time, we hope to have a greater selection of digital stamps to suit your creative needs. Our plan is to have new releases twice a month~a Busy Beauties set with two feature stamps & coordinating accessory images at the 1st of the month and random images (i.e. seasonal) around the 15th of the month. So, if you do not find what you are looking for during your first visit, maybe it will be here during your next.

You might just win a $10.00 Gift Voucher to use in the Busy Beauties Boutique Online Store. That's whats up for grabs this week.

Here's this weeks challenge. Be sure to checkout the Designers creations and if you need even more inspiration be sure to checkout the participates creations as well. You can rotate, flip, stretch or anything your heart desires with the sketch. As long as I can see some of the sketch your good to go. So happy crafting.

  3. Wowsers....Great Sketch, Dawn....the DT did FABULOUS WORK!

  4. Dawn - The samples are beautiful! I finished my card using the sketch and posted it on my blog on Monday (BEFORE the deadline). Some how though I forgot to link it. This is my first time participating and I'm so upset that I forgot to even link my creation. I've done so now...I understand if you can't consider it for the prize but wanted you to be able to at least see my creation!


Welcome to ICS and thank you for dropping by! Your comments are appreciated. ♥Dawn♥
