1st and 3rd Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge 360

Welcome to a the brand new Technostamper Sketch Challenge-due to lower participation every other week I have decided to only post new sketches on the 1st and 3rd Mondays.  That means you will get a full two weeks (sometimes even more) to play along.  I decided to do the 1st and 3rd so that it is always consistent and you know when to look for the new sketch and when you have to have your design in by!  I hope this allows for more people to play along with each sketch--it will also give me less sketches to come up with, lol.  As the numbers get higher and higher I need to think more and more. Now I do realize that this is NOT the 1st Monday of April, so I am re-posting last week's sketch with an extended link to play along.  Here is the sketch....


I am also re-posting the teams samples.......



I used the free SAB paper--Best Year Ever pack with the Best Day Ever free SAB stamp set.  If you did not get these yet for free you better order soon as SAB ends at the end of the month!  
Supplies:
Paper: Soft Suede, Best Year Ever DP, Coastal Cabana,
Ink: Soft Suede
Other: ribbon tape, rhinestones, butterfly thinlets
Now for the rest of the team's fabulous samples....

These girls never fail to have great designs!  Thanks so much ladies!  
So are you ready to play along?
I hope you are, go and create and then when you are done come on back and add your sample to the linky tool below.  



Here are some basic rules for the challenge....
  1. You have a until April 5th to play along!
  2. Create a new card using the sketch as your inspiration.
  3. Use any products you choose.
  4. Add your card to your blog or other on-line spot and link back to this challenge.
  5. Come back here and add a direct link to your sample for the challenge and NOT you home page of your blog--people will not look for your challenge card--trust me.
  6. And this one is not really a rule but a request--get rid of that word verification!  It makes it hard for us to comment on your samples.  It is easier for you to delete the spam then for us to jump through tons of hoops to comment.  If your put your comments on moderation you do not have to worry about spam--you will have the option to delete it BEFORE it ever goes on your blog so you will ALWAYS be safe!
  7. Have fun and tell you friends to play too!

Top Three for Sketch 359

Sketches will now be posted on the

1st and 3rd Mondays!

Due to low participation  every other week I have decided to only post on the 1st and 3rd Mondays--that will give you at least 2 weeks to play along--sometimes more.  I want to keep it consistent so I feel the 1st and 3rd will be easier to remember than every other.  I hope you will continue to stop by and play along with each new challenge.  This week we are continuing last weeks sketch..you can see it in the next post.  Have a great day and find some time to stamp!

A clean and simple sketch for this week! Perfect for my new butterfly thinlets! I know I am a bit behind the rest of the SU people with this--I tried and tried not to purchase it but I could not hold out any longer--and I am so happy I have it!  It is so fun to play with.  Tomorrow's post will use it and the same supplies too!  So here is my sample for this week's sketch.....

Top Three for Sketch 357.

So we had another week with only a few players.  Hmmm, really is making me wonder how much longer I want to do these sketches.  But I do have a bunch already done so they will not end too soon.  Anyway the good news is there were three so we do have a top three--kinda!  They are all fabulous though--and I am not just saying that--they all have the style and colors that would make me chose them anyway!  Thanks so much for playing along ladies!


 

 

Great job ladies.  Thanks again, you are really talented and have wonderful samples for this sketch!
I'll be right back with the new sketch for this week so don't go far!

Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge 356 (TSSC356)

Wowzers, two crazy buys week's in a row around here.  I have been struggling to get anything done at home, I am not sure I have been home for too long on any given day.  I did begin a new workout weight loss challenge last week which has me committed to working out 5 times a week with personal trainers for six weeks.  I have one week down--I have lost 7 pounds and I am sore everywhere, lol.  But the goal is 20 pounds in 6 weeks, healthy eating for live and new work out habits!  Plus the added bonus of having my system cleansed of all bad stuff so I can see if any of my unhealthy eating habits are making my autoimmune disorders worse.   They say that some foods can trigger them so we will see--clean eating for 6 weeks ought to clean all that out!  Anyway the reason you stopped by was to see this week's sketch not hear about my weight, lol.  So here is this week's sketch......

And my sample.......

I just got this new stamp set and die combo and I am loving these fabulous words from the dies.  So fun and they looks great on cards.  Simple card but I like it!
Stamps: Crazy About You
Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Pool Party, DP, Whisper White
Ink: Cherry Cobbler
Other: candy dots, rhinestones, Hello You thinlits

Now for the rest of the team's samples.....
