Hi everyone and Happy Easter weekend, the sun's out and I've finished all my Easter crafting (finally!).

Like many others, I'm a big fan of Laura Fredrickson and in particular her weekend sketch sets - taking a few sketches and using the same colour scheme and stamp set for them all. It's a fabulous idea, and once you've got the supplies chosen they come together pretty quickly.

Here are three cards from sketches that I made yesterday and today:

I used my beloved Kraft cardstock, and chose to work with the same image for all three - the cake image from the Level Two Hostess set, Cause for Celebration. Papers are from the Washington Apple paper pack, from the new Mini catalogue.

The first card is based on last week's sketch over at Splitcoast:

...based on this sketch (sorry it's so diddy!)

Next up, the Stamps and Smiles sketch challenge:

...based on this sketch:

And finally, my take on the current sketch challenge at Stamp With Us.

Here's the sketch:
