Well….my work emails were down to 70 last night at 10 p.m. I worked all day. This morning the number was back up to 90. I hope to get done today. I haven’t made a sample for this sketch challenge yet, but I will! As soon as I can. I just thought I post it in the morning, so some of you might get to play already.

I found this layout in May’s Creative Keepsakes magazine. I think it was on page 31. I thought it would be perfect for a card. Shortly after I made my sketch, I even saw a card made with this layout on SCS. I can’t remember who made it though.


This week’s challenge will run until Wednesday morning at 9 a.m. CST. The winner will receive some retired SU triangle eyelets.

 To enter the drawing, post a card made with this sketch somewhere online: SCS, your blog, another site…. Then post a link to your card as a comment to this post.

I can’t wait to see your take on this sketch. Hugs and smiles

  1. Hi! Oh my gosh, your blog takes forever to download for me these days! So much stuff! Has anyone else said the same thing, or is it only me (I’ve got DSL too, so it’s not the computer). I think it’s that you’ve got SO much stuff on here and SO many fans, it’s slowing things down. Or, maybe it’s just my computer isn’t liking it. Anyways, I’m SO GLAD YOU’RE BACK! We all missed you terribly! I like this sketch, so I think I’m gonna have to give it a try!


  2. Ooooh! Maybe the girls and I can do this sketch together this weekend! I wish you could come over to stamp! 🙂

  3. Thank you for a wonderful sketch this week. I really enjoyed this one. Didn’t even have to think about what I was going to do, I just knew. Check out my card at

    Here’s my entry- great sketch! It was fun! I’m passing this card on to both my upline and downline who have birthdays this month (I made two), so kept it to all Stampin’ Up! products so they can use it for display.
    It’s entry #33. Now I can go and look at what everyone else has done, I find that if I look first I get too distracted by the gorgeous work!

  29. Eeek, I guess Jill was posting when I was! Make mine #34!

  30. Here are my two cards I made for the weekend sketch. I’ve never done this before but I can see it’s going to be a favorite! This is a good way to learn something new!

  44. […] The sentiment was stamped in Chocolate Chip on Whisper White cardstock and punched out with the small oval punch. It was layered on half of a 1 3/8″ bashful blue circle and half of a chocolate scallop circle. I added a paper pierced border underneath the sentiment. These layers were adhered to the top right of the strip. I used a modified version of the WSC8 layout. […]
