Hello there Verve lovelies, Andrea checking in here to bring you a new week's design! Do you believe that it's already time to wrap up July with our 5th and final sketch of the month? I'm not sure how I end up with the CAS sketches, since I am so NOT CAS, however, I do like to stretch my creative genes every once in a while and attempt to do an Irish jig outside my comfort zone! But before we jump into things, let's get the particulars out of the way...
~ The Details~
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 a $100 gift certificate to VERVE! 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!
We've had five sketches in July. All five of your cards must be uploaded to the VLVJUL2012 Gallery and linked up in the VLVLJUL2012 Sketch CHAMPIONS thread by midnight, CST on Thursday, August 2, to be eligible to win this month's prize! Winner will be announced on August 3rd! GOOD LUCK!
Keywords for the entire month will be VLVJul2012 and Verve (if using Verve stamps).
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... VLVJul2012. 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 VLVJul2012 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 VLVJul2012 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.
Ok, so let's get to my sketch, shall we?
A wonderful thank you to Moe, who not only provided me with a gorgeous sample for this sketch, but who does so every week for us Divas. Thanks, darlin'!
