Hello! Welcome to July ladies! I don't know how you feel about this year FLYING by, but I have selfish reasons to wish it to move just a tiny bit faster You ready for another month of sketches?? I've seen them, and just know you're going to love the sketches this month!
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 July, we'll have FOUR sketches! All four cards must be uploaded to the VLVJul2011 gallery by midnight, CST on Thursday, July 28th to be eligible to win this month's prize! Winner will be announced on July 29th! GOOD LUCK!
Keywords for the entire month will be VLVJul2011 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... [COLOR="rgb(72, 209, 204)"]VLVJul2011.[/COLOR] 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 the [COLOR="rgb(72, 209, 204)"]VLVJul2011 Gallery.[/COLOR]
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 [COLOR="rgb(72, 209, 204)"]VLVJul2011[/COLOR] 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.
AMber, I LOVE this sketch! So many possiblities! I immediately thought of these cute little sailboats in the Text Objects set. Can you believe this is the first time I've use that image? SO easy to paper piece and it looks adorable! This card is for a young couple expecting their first baby this week ~ a boy! Thanks for letting me play. Here's Summer Sailing

Yay! I'm caught up!
This week one sketched stumped me and in the end I couldn't even figure out how and where to in-cooperate a stamp on the outside ... I guess I could pop off a flower ... anyhow, my play time is over and I'm not ripping it apart now! Oh! and my circle is too small ... you would think I could remember the sketch all the way to my room with out a print out! oh well.
There is a positive, bright shiny ray of glittery sunshine through all this:
I made three cards this weekend after a long icky month of not creating a thing! So yay for stamp therapy! And Super smiley face, my new Verve parcel will come this week I bet!! That will get me stampin!
