Weekend Sketch Challenge #75 April 3, 2009

Yikes!  Today is my turn to host the sketch.  I hope you like it.  Here is what I came up with for you to try:



If you are uploading your sample to splitcoast, please put WSC75 (no spaces between WSC and 75..all one word) in the keyword section.    Post a link to your card, no matter where it’s hosted online, to this blog entry using Mr. Linky at bottom of this post.

Check out Beate Johns, Cambria Turnbow, Charmaine Ikach, Jenn Balcer, Laurie Schmidlin, Lori Craig, and Sharon Harnist to see more samples.

I will use on Tuesday, April 7th to pick a winner.  Because I’m approaching 600,000 and hosting, how about a nice little prize for the lucky sketch challenge winner?  I have some Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-Bration items….pack of Delicate Dots 12×12 Designer Series Paper and the Ribbon Bundle (10yds of So Saffron Grosgrain & 10 yds of Certainly Celery Poly-Twill). 

Now get to creating!!!  Can’t wait to see what you come up with.
