Welcome to the Technique Junkie "SKETCH BY DESIGN" blog hop.
This blog hop starts at the Technique Junkies Blog, start there if you don't want to miss anything.
The sketch for this hop can be found HERE.

I have decided to take the term "eye candy" for real and chose to use
FireCracker Designs digital Candied Apples stamp to make this sketch.
The apples are colored with copic markers and on the apples I added
some Glossy Accent to make them look real yummy.
In the background you find one of the new techniques from the
TJ October/November newsletter called  Texture Duet.
The paper for this card is from the Paper Temptress.
This sketch will be a challenge for every TJ member who puts a Design Challenge card on the group or sends it to Pat Huntoon. October is Pat's anniversary month!
Happy Anniversary Pat!!! 
(8 wonderful years of new techniques) 
The prize will be TJ Subscriber for life, and all back issues/cds to fill in the collection of whoever wins prize will include things from the vendors.

You will need to leave comment on Pat's blog AND CREATE a card sharing the link to their project.
For more inspiration please hop over to

And if in  the mean time you got hungry or wonder how to make candy apples
 I have found an easy recipe for you to try:
