Happy Wednesday and Happy Halloween! We survived the Frankenstorm here in Maine and sure hope this finds you all safe too. Our hearts go out to all those who bore the brunt of Hurricane Sandy’s destruction and hope things will be improving for you very soon.

Today it’s time to get inspired with a new WHAT IF? Wednesday Sketch Challenge. I really enjoy designing these sketches and then seeing all the wonderful things you all create with them. Thank you so much for playing along! Here is the sketch I created for this week.

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 O3112 Sketch Challenge until 5pm EST on November 13th. All participants will be automatically entered into our random drawing. Then on November 14th we will post a new challenge. And when that challenge wraps up we’ll announce the winner of our November 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 O3112 in your blog or gallery posting.

Today we’re also announcing the winner of our October 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… Nance S.! Congratulations, Nance and happy shopping! Please leave a comment on this post and I will get your certificate on it’s way.

Don’t forget… we also have a great Designer’s Choice Challenge going on now too! Our Rock Star hostess, Joyce Morien, has a fun style challenge for you this time. Please visit my DCC1024 ~ Anything Other Than A Card Challenge post for all the details and wonderful inspiration cards from the Rock Stars.

Thanks so much for spending time here with us this week. The Rock Stars and I hope you’ve been inspired to play along and look forward to seeing your challenge card linked here soon. 😀

Have a spooktacular Halloween!

So a few days ago Joyce shared this tag with her fellow Rock Stars and asked them to create something of their own that was not a card. Check out this awesome variety of pieces the Rock Stars created to inspire you this time!
