Happy Friday Verve fans! If it's Friday, it must be time for a brand-y new sketch! Are we ready to get those creative juices flowing and produce some fabulousity? Me, too! I used my very limited knowledge of Word to design this sketch, luckily for me, Julee has a much more expansive knowledge of computers and made my sketch so pretty! Before we jump in though, let's get some housekeeping outta the way....
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!
For October, we'll have FIVE sketches! All FIVE cards must be uploaded to the VLVOct2012 gallery by midnight, CST on Thursday, November 1st to be eligible to win this month's prize! Winner will be announced on November 2nd! GOOD LUCK!
Keywords for the entire month will be VLVOct2012 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...VLVOct2012. 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 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 theVLVOct2012 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 beautiful samples from sweet Divas Maureen, Teresa and Tosh and one from myself:

Thanks for the sketch, Andrea! Gave a perfect stage for my little turkey I've been dying to try. If you haven't seen Inky Antics' HoneyPOP paper, it's quite fun. It's that honeycombed paper like older decorations were often made from (think big 3D paper bells in the midst of streamers for wedding showers). I got to try some for a make and take recently, and immediately thought how cute it would work as a body for the turkey in Bountiful Harvest. Hope you like him as much as I do!!
