Happy Wednesday everyone! It’s time for a new sketch challenge! I designed the card layout shown here and then asked our Rock Stars to have some fun with it.
Just look at all the fabulous cards the Rock Stars came up with to inspire you this week! Please be sure to visit their individual blogs for details and don’t forget to leave us all a little love too. We always enjoy your comments!
And now it’s your turn! The rules are really simple… Your card doesn’t even have to be made with Repeat Impressions stamps, but if you would like to include our designs we would really love to see them! Plus you will get an additional entry in our random.org drawing for using our stamps in your submissions! Simply create a card based on my sketch, upload your card to your blog or Splitcoast gallery, then link your card here to this post by clicking on the little blue button below.
We will be accepting submissions to this J2911 Sketch Challenge until 5pm EST on July 12th. All participants will be automatically entered into our random drawing. Then on July 13th we will post a new challenge. When that challenge wraps up at the end of the month we will announce the winner from our July challenges. One lucky person will win a $25 Repeat Impressions Gift Certificate!
So what are you waiting for?! Why not play along with us and start stamping up a card now. We can’t wait to see your creations! When you are ready to share your card, please add the direct link to your entry using the link button below. And please be sure to provide a link back here and reference Repeat Impressions Sketch J2911 in your blog or gallery posting.
Today we also announce the winner of our June sketch challenges. As usual, we let random.org select the lucky recipient of our $25 Gift Certificate. Drum roll please… this time that person is… Lynn Hayes! Congratulations, Lynn and happy shopping! Please leave a comment on this post and I will get your certificate on it’s way.
Since Lynn’s card was created using our 4303-M Nap Time Fairy image, I thought I would include it here for you all to enjoy. What a sweet card and such a great job with my sketch! For more of Lynn’s work please follow this link to her blog.
