Most of you know that Jenn, Lori, Sharon and I are at the Portland Regionals. That’s why I picked a super simple sketch for this weekend’s challenge. Feel free to add a small layer for the sentiment.

This week, the winner of the random drawing will get 6″ x 6″ sheets of patterned paper from the My Mind’s Eye pack Cosco sold this spring.


To participate in the challenge, make a card with this layout and upload it either to your blog, or to an online gallery.

 If you upload your card on SCS, put WSC23  (NO SPACE INBETWEEN WSC AND 23) in the keyword section. That way we can look at all of them at once!

Post a link to your card to THIS blog entry as a comment. Please add your entry# to it.

I will determine the winner of the clear stamps with on Wednesday at 9:00 a.m.

I will post my sample tomorrow.

To see samples made with this sketch now, check out the blogs of

Charmaine Ikach

Jenn Balcer 

Laurie Schmidlin and

Sharon Harnist

Have fun creating! I can’t wait to see what you come up with.
