Welcome to a NEW S:CY Designer!

Hello Everyone! I have some very exciting news!

Please welcome Janice Coble to the "Sketches: Creatively Yours" Design Team!!!!

 S:CY Design Team Member: Janice Coble

Janice has been a regular participant  at S:CY, & has oodles of talent, so it was with great pleasure that I was able to ask her to join us.  

Janice kindly provided a bio to help me introduce her.

Hi! My name is Janice. I live in Illinois about 45 miles southwest of the Windy City, aka Chicago. I have grown-up twins (29 yo), 5 nephews and 1 great-nephew ~~~ yes a family of ALL boys.

I am a bowler with a 185 avg and enjoy going to tournaments around the country (Reno, NC, Texas in recent years). Oh yeah, I also have a real job, I am an Assistant Admin with a scientific research laboratory --- that is not as complicated as it sounds!

I started this craft venture way back when I was 9 or 10 years old. A neighbor taught me to crochet and I was hooked (no pun intended). A few years ago a co-worker started having card-making classes at work and I took the opportunity and ran with it.

I’ve only made a few layouts that I refuse to show anyone but the DH, so hopefully this will improve my skills. What ever the end result is my “style” and I gravitate toward sketches more often than not.

I love ribbon and literally have 6 drawers full of ribbon ~~~ all colors, textures, and styles. Flowers are also a favorite and I love to make my own. I am so looking forward to being a part of the S:CY DT and thank you Ali for extending the invitation!

Welcome Janice!!!! So thrilled to have you with us!

Janice shared 2 projects for us to use in her introduction. Her hubby helped her decide which ones to send in! (Seems he has a very good eye!)

I just love all the little details Janice has incorporated into her cards: the bows, shaped cardstock, scallops, flowers and pearls! And-- the colours are just beautiful!

Here is a card that Janice made with Ann's most recent S:CY Card Sketch! Isn't it pretty!!!?
