So a few days ago Karen shared this inspiration card with her fellow Rock Stars and asked them to create their own springy pastel card. Check out all the wonderful cards they came up with!

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 F2212 Sketch Challenge until 5pm EST on March 6th. All participants will be automatically entered into our random drawing. Then on March 7th we will post a new challenge and when that challenge wraps up we will announce the winner of our March challenges. One lucky person will win a $25 Repeat Impressions Gift Certificate!

Today we’re also announcing the winner of our February sketch challenges. As usual, we let random.org select the lucky recipient of our $25 Gift Certificate. So without further ado… drum roll please… this time that person is… La-Vie Borde-Perry! Congratulations, La-Vie and happy shopping! Please leave a comment on this post and I will get your certificate on it’s way.

As it turns out, La-Vie used a Repeat Impressions verse stamp in her creation so I am sharing her card here for you all to enjoy. Also, I had the great pleasure of meeting La-Vie at a stamp show in PA a couple of years ago. Not only is she talented, she is just such a bubbly, wonderful person so I am extra excited to be giving her this gift certificate. Way to go La-Vie! Keep spreading your joy and creativity! 😀

Happy President’s Day to all our U.S. friends! Today is a travel day for me. Woohoo! I am on the last leg of my journey home after two weeks on the road. It’s been fun, but I can’t wait to sleep in my own bed. There really is no place like home! 😀

It’s time for a new Stamp of the Week and this time around we’re going with an Asian theme. Today we’re showcasing our 5701-J Mina image. This was a stamp I designed to celebrate a dear friend in Japan. Check out these great cards the Rock Stars created to inspire you!
