Freshly Made Sketches #600 - A Celebration

Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches!  Each week, one member of our design team creates a sketch for you to try.  The challenge is to follow our sketch while keeping your project clean-lined and fresh.  The "Clean Team" has come up with some "Freshly Made" designs to get you in the spirit.  We are so excited to see what YOU create!

Here we are at twelve years of sketches and 600 inspiration sketches!  And you know what?  Our years of fun and success are all because of you, the players.  Every week we are amazed at your creativity and generosity of sharing your talents.

We thought that the best way to celebrate is to pay tribute to some of our challenge winners.  Many of them have been playing along since the beginning and it has been a treat to grow in our friendships with them.  We are always thrilled to see what they create so we invited them to be guest design team members for our celebration!  You will see why they have been chosen over and over as the weekly winners.

We also have a new opportunity for you as players.  Each of the challenge design team members will choose their favorite of the week (normally a Perfect Prince or Princess).  Those winners will be offered a chance to be a guest design team member in a future challenge.  Again, this is truly a celebration of you all.  Thank you for the years of support and kind words!

Guest Design Team


We have a few simple rules to keep things fun and fair for all of our players:

Ladies, I am sorry my card is posted twice. The first can be deleted. For some reason google decided the post violated standards, so I published a new post. Thank you!
