  2. Thanks for a fun sketch.
    I need to ask a favor - I apparently was not paying attention, and I believe I have an incorrect ink for #3 - it should be corrected on #4. Please delete #3 - thanks.

  3. Hello Gill and team - fabulous inspiration - have added my entry - would love to win the GDT position as I love your stamps - I am an inky girl at heart so my style would be a little different but i think it would work! Fingers crossed xx

  4. Hi!
    I am new here and glad to have found your blog!! Very inspirational projects by DT's!!! I added my entry in this fun sketch challenge.

  5. Great challenge and inspiration from the DT. I have just added my final entry this time using a Little Claire stamp. I would love the win the GDT position. Your stamps are lovely and so versatile. Would love the chance to show what I could do with them and work alongside some very talented ladies for a little while. Mags xx

  6. I would love the opportunity to be a guest designer. I have benefited from the inspiration of other card makers over the years and it would be great to be able to share my ideas with others. x
