Before we get to the new sketch, we have some wonderful news to share with you today. We are just tickled pink to announce that Michelle Lancaster has joined the Sweet Sketch Wednesday design team and I know you'll find her creations inspiring. Here's a little bit of background on Michelle:
My name is Michelle Lancaster and I now live in Buxton, Derbyshire, England but I am originally from Liverpool, Merseyside. I have lived in Buxton for just over a year. I started making cards about 3.5 years ago and I am totally hooked. My favourite method is stamping and I am longing to learn different colouring techniques, especially colouring using distress inks. I do love other crafts such as cross stitching and beading amongst others. I have a cute 5 year old son called Brandon and a gorgeous, elderly cat call Suki (my shadow). We all live with my partner of 19 years Col. Oh yes, mustn't forget them.... we also have two gerbils but their names are still undecided.
A warm Wednesday welcome to you Michelle! We're thrilled to have you on the Sweet Sketch Wednesday team!
