ric#58 - Trina Turk

Hello!  In case you missed it, our winners from the last challenge were announced on Tuesday.

I am SO excited about today's challenge.  We have joined forces with another challenge - CAS(E) this Sketch!  In case you don't know- it is a challenge blog run by Chrissy Larson, and each week they provide a sketch for you to use when making your creation!

Today you will be provided with an runway look AND a sketch to use as inspiration!  You may link to BOTH challenges, and that will essentially double your chances of earning recognition.   Sounds like fun, right?!?  You will have 2 weeks to add your entries.  We cannot wait to see what you make :)

--------------------------------------------------------------


We have an incredible guest joining for today's challenge.  She has a clean and sweet card making style and frequently enters many different card challenges! I knew she would be the perfect guest today, so I'm happy to introduce you to...

Deepti Malik!





Hello!! I am Deepti and I live with my husband Vikas in Cleveland, Ohio. I love being creative. With sketching and painting being my hobby since childhood, I now find solace in card making. Paper crafting is a newly acquired passion and it all started with making a few cards for the new year of 2013 and I have been hooked ever since. My card making style is CAS and mostly my cards will depict a thought/ feeling. You will often find hand drawn elements in my cards. I have come a long way and learnt at every step. All thanks to my dear husband who has supported me in embracing this new hobby. Besides, being a creative outlet, card making has introduced me to a lot of amazing n talented people like you, who I can proudly call as my friends. I hope I can inspire you :) you can find me at Dee's Art Utopia !!

We have such an amazing guest joining us today!  She is a total sweetheart and is a talented card maker too!  She is a master of many styles, from cute to classy to clean and simple.  Please give a warm welcome to:

I’m a retired Legal Assistant, married to Garry since 1980, and mom to Amy (newly married to Joe) and Ashley (married to Blake and the mother to my grandsons, Brecken and Brenner.) I’m blessed to live in Issaquah, Washington in the summer, and Chandler, Arizona in the winter – the best of both worlds! I love all things paper crafting, but especially stamping and card-making. I would describe my personal crafting style as a mix of clean and simple, graphic, and a bit of fun and cute thrown in for good measure. I love to laugh, shop, travel, and play BINGO (don’t judge! LOL) You can find me at my blog, Paper Therapy. I’d love to have you visit!
