One Hopefull Ant

This is Hopeful Ant... isn't he sweet?? I made this card for this weeks High Hopes Challenge. Nikki has provided us with a fun sketch to work with this week and I realised it was really fun to not have to think too hard about what you are going to do with the paper! I don't use sketches very often which I think is where I am going wrong!! I have been looking around this weekend for a few sites that do sketches. So here is a question for you, what is your favouite card sketch site? I occasionally join in on the SCS weekly challenge but I would like to know if there are any others hanging around out there that are great too!

Oh, before I trundle off to do some watercolouring, remember if you do decide to join in on the High Hopes Challenge, link your card to the thread on the HH blog (the link is above) and you will go into the draw to win the stamps used on Nikki's card!!

This card is adorable! I love how you turned down the corner.
Regarding sketch blogs, I have some links towards the bottom on my middle column of my blog. I love using sketches. Some of my favorites are Friday Sketchers, Sketch Saturday, Taylored Expressions (on friday), Amy R Friday sketch, and sometimes A Spoon Full of Sugar, Truly Scrumptious, and Cute Card Thursday have sketches.

Fabulous painting of the image, as per usual for you! I do love the corner treatments, as well as the tiny hearts on the green panel. And it looks like you tinted the tips of the green flower, did you? Beautiful, as always Amy!
