Hey y'all, Happy Friday! I can't believe it's time for the third sketch for August already. We are knee deep in school supplies around here, just two more weeks until the fun starts!
I was in a layer-y mood when I created this sketch...I hope you like it!!
Every Friday, a Diva will post a sketch for your enjoyment. Your cards, using the sketches, must be uploaded by the last Thursday of the month (check for the due date below!) The winner will be announced on the next day and will win the ENTIRE next Verve stamp release! How awesome is that?! Just a reminder, Verve stamps are NOT required but we love to see you use them. Feel free to flip, rotate, resize, or otherwise alter the sketch as long as we can tell you USED the sketch!
For August, we'll have FIVE sketches! All five cards must be uploaded to the VLVAug2011 gallery by midnight, CST on Thursday, September 1st to be eligible to win this month's prize! Winner will be announced on September 2nd! GOOD LUCK!
Keywords for the entire month will be VLVAug2011 and Verve (if using Verve stamps).
**Some Upload Information** If you're new to the gallery, here's a little info on how to add your cards to our gallery: If you haven't uploaded your cards yet, just click the Upload a Card link in the left sidebar. Keep the default category as Member Galleries. Then follow the form to browse to the photo of your card on your computer, enter a title and description then click upload/submit. On the next screen it asks you for the ingredients of the card and also has a Keyword section. In this section type the keyword for this month's challenges... VLVAug2011. When you're done filling things out, click process. It takes a few minutes to show up in our challenge gallery but as long as you've got the correct keyword, your photo will eventually appear in theVLVAug2011 Gallery
If you've already uploaded your cards, you can edit the keywords by going to the photo in your gallery. In the bottom right corner under the information below the picture, there is an Edit Photo button. Click this, then in the Edit keywords section add the VLVAug2011 keyword and then click process. These changes take about 10 minutes or so to appear, but then your card should appear in our challenge gallery.
Here are some fabulous samples from the amazing Dawn and Teresa and a sample from me:
For whatever reason I just can't bring myself to make square cards (the ladies who buy cards from me don't seem interested in square ones). But this sketch translated really well to a standard size card.
I like the sketches so far, but have been a bit busy this month so far. School starts on Monday for us, so am hoping to find some spare time after kids are in school... (crossing fingers, but not holding breath! LOL)
