Anything Goes Challenge No. 150 with OPTIONAL TWIST: Sketch

Hi and welcome, fellow bloggers! We're really stirring things up this week as we have an optional sketch you can use for Challenge No. 150! Fun, fun! We'd like to thank our former teammate, Jolanda Breedvelt. Jolanda created this sketch for us while she was still part of my Dream Team. She's moved on to greener pastures and we've all wished her the best! I hope you will join us in wishing her well!
This is a JFF (just for fun) challenge and we are very much looking forward to seeing what you might come up with to share. As always, the challenge is anything goes and the sketch is optional! Here's a look-see of the sketch:

TOP 3 and Honorable Mention: Challenge No. 148

Welcome, bloggers! Wow, we had 158 entries for our last challenge! Thank you all who participated!
For our TOP 3, three members from my 'Dream Team' selected in no particular order:
52 Gloria Shirr
Sometimes, when I enter challenges, I take the time to view the other entries but other times, I'm in such a rush that I easily overlook some fabulous makes. Although here at IDCB, all the makes I see challenge after challenge are inspiring, I had to give this one an honorable mention. It just spoke to me on so many levels.
I do not have a special IDCB badge for an honorable mention, but please know that I just had to bring attention to this piece in case anyone was unable to view it.

Anything Goes Challenge No. 149

Welcome, everyone! 
Wow, I hadn't been able to keep up with my blogging duties like I wanted when I started this journey back in 2014. Things changed for me super fast once I launched this challenge blog. Having my own challenge blog was something I'd been wanting to have since early 2013 but I wasn't sure I could pull it all together... but you know what? I did! I gathered up some of the best gals I affectionately call my 'Dream Team' because they are the easiest group of ladies to get along with and they were quick to jump on board to help me achieve my dream! No questions asked! Also, and I cannot stress this enough, I can't tolerate drama and that is something we've not ever had! It's been awesome watching the blog grow bit by bit but I had not noticed that we'd surpassed 500 followers and are just seven shy of 600! Wow... again! lol 
I want to thank each of you who chose to participate in our challenges. Especially since we went from sponsors to JFF (just for fun). We do have a sole sponsor this year. That is our very own Kinda Cute by Patricia Alvarez. Just as she's supported me in my endeavor, I wanted to support her in hers! I know you have many choices when deciding where to join in on the fun so I very much appreciate it when you chose to play along with my 'Dream Team' and me in our challenges! 
I've had lots of things going on in my personal life that have left me overwhelmed for way too long and I'm so grateful for my Team. If it hadn't been for them plugging along by my side, I might would have had to close up shop long ago! They've been my support and drive when I wasn't sure I could get my act together and get things done in a timely manner. 
So I just want all of you to know, my Team and each of you who visit my challenge blog, that I am so grateful for your crafty companionship! It means the world to me that I've not been tossed aside for other challenge blogs. I wish I could send each of you a bucket of good wishes! :)
Well, I've said my bit and now to thank you again for joining us for Challenge No. 149 which is an easy and lovable anything goes! This is a JFF (just for fun) challenge. Please check out these wonderful makes from the Team! :)
