Sketch Challenge 65
3 Attachment(s)
REMINDER: Please put SC65 in your keywords box.

Master Thread

If you need help with uploading a card - click here or here.

I’m using my own sketch this week and many of you have seen it already.
The card size is the 5.5 by 4.25”.
The panel is cut 3.75 (one half inch narrower than the card).
Measure one inch in from each bottom edge and make a mark.
Line up the corner and the mark on your cutter and make the cut.
I made a template from an old greeting card so it’s faster measuring the next time.
You can use the panel in either direction, decorative scissor edges are optional and here are two samples:
Narrow bottom by Rox71
Narrow top by Rox71

BONUS FUN! Guess who has a birthday this week…that would be ME! One day sooner and I would have been a little fool!
The best part of birthdays growing up was being able to treat your friends at school…once I got past the thought of hording all that chocolate for myself!
So this year I get to treat one of you with a prize. I’ll announce the winner next week and also the way he/she is chosen but a little hint would be - the more cards you make the more chances you have to win!

The layout attachment will print out to actual A2 (4.25 x 5.5) size of the card for most computers.

To print this layout: - (nc means no color) If you see a small layout click on it or if you see an icon click on the words next to it.
-When the black surround screen appears click only on the layout and a white screen with the layout should appear.
-Right click and click on print from the pop up box or hold down your shift key and P key at the same time.
-Now you're ready to choose print and it should print to actual size of the card depending on your computer.

I made a comment on one last night and never even thought about the challenge. Must have something to do with Amber being Dawns daughter!

Not sure if I will have time to get to the challenge today! I have a workshop tonight and I have left it to the last minute as usual. But I will definetly do it this week!

nmslmomto3 03-29-2006 02:40 AM

I love this challenge, wow is the dog card the cutest or what?? LOVE IT! I am making my Easter boxes, but want so much to try this card today!

nmslmomto3 03-29-2006 02:42 AM

btw Roxie, I LOVE the new avatar! Looks GREAT!!!

imastampin 03-29-2006 02:48 AM

The wheels are turning. Thanks for the great inspiration cards.

BadSherry 03-29-2006 03:19 AM

Great sketch Roxie -- have some errands to run today but I'm sure I can sneak in a card or two! It'll just give me some time to think about it as I drive around town!

MaryJo Marshall 03-29-2006 03:32 AM

Great card and by the way.....HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!!

Pink-fish 03-29-2006 03:37 AM

Woohoo. I got to the challenge right as you were posting Roxie (I am NOT a stalker, lol) and I had a house full of sleeping kids!!!! I just finished, as soon as I saw tha layout I thought of a bouquet. Boy does it feel good to do something for myself before anyone is awake. Well they are getting up now so off to being the maid, cook, driver, nurse, referee........

Here's the card:

Jeanne S 03-29-2006 03:38 AM

Morning Miss Roxie!!! The sketch looks like fun.

Pink-fish 03-29-2006 03:39 AM

Oh yeah

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~HAPPY BIRTHDAY ROXIE ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Gladd-lyStamping 03-29-2006 03:50 AM

Happy Birthday, Roxie!!!!!! :)

Love the sketch idea - will have to dust off my decorative scissors. They are in the depths of one of my crafting closets.......:shock: I hope that doesn't mean that I end up Spring Cleaning........

BTW: Your Avatar is great - Good to see your smiling face again (although your "Bad Ear Day" was pretty cute). ;)

dawnmercedes 03-29-2006 03:58 AM

I was slow to rise out of bed today! Nice new Pix Roxie! And Happy BDay to you.

Sereikastamper 03-29-2006 04:02 AM

Oh this one looks like fun!

swinddrake 03-29-2006 04:03 AM

Happy Happy B-Day to you "ROXIE"

MyPrecious 03-29-2006 04:11 AM



Happy Birthday ROX! Hope to find time to play today!

Wendy G 03-29-2006 04:17 AM

Happy Birthday Roxie!!! I'm singing with Beth... :D (if you could hear me, you would plug your ears. lol!) :rolleyes:
I love this sketch! Can't wait to play!

lacyquilter 03-29-2006 04:24 AM

Good morning ladies,

I'm a little on the slow side this morning. I think the pea-soup fog outside is also in my brain. It is so thick out there, that I literally can't see the houses across the street!

Fun sketch, Roxie! I'm still plugging out cards for Julia's challenge & I didn't even attempt the colors from yesterday yet. I need to do some catchin' up! Hopefully, I'll get some time to play.

Thanks Beth, now that will be the song in the head for the day!

OMG! I just thought of this, Sunday I GET NEW BACKGROUND STAMPS!!!

Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes...I got until Sunday until I get another year older...where did all those years go????????????

BTW...that card with the butterflies...took way to long to know how long it took to make it! LOL! But I like the end results! I found if I hold the stamp with the bleach on for ten counts it took better.

Pinky 03-29-2006 04:25 AM

Happy Birthday Roxiel...I cannot play as I am in VA visiting my grands...hope you have a great day and I miss playing w/you gals...I will be looking at all your examples though!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


cindy501 03-29-2006 04:30 AM

Cool Sketch. Thanks for the challenge. Of course, I don't think I have any stamps that I can use for it (LOL), like my wardrobe. I never feel like have the right clothes for an occasion that comes up and similarly I never feel like I the right stamps for the challenges. That is why I always keep buying, buying, buying. Don't know if I'll get to play today but will definitely be trying this on the weekend if not before.....Thanks again.

DawnL 03-29-2006 04:31 AM

woohooo, Rox, this was FUN..FUN..FUN!! got 3 done by 8am!!


DawnL 03-29-2006 04:43 AM

duh.. I'm dyslexic this morn... :lol: I put sc56 instead of 65!!! :roll:

BadSherry 03-29-2006 04:47 AM

Just tell me how you come up with these soooooo fast and such beautiful cards!! It takes me all day sometimes just to get the design down!

Jerri Kay 03-29-2006 04:48 AM

Great challenge Rox. I've got to finish my Easter cards today and hopefully will be able to play. Caught my kids virus and am not going my usual pace. Happy, Happy Birthday to you as well!

DawnL 03-29-2006 04:54 AM

showmestamper 03-29-2006 05:00 AM

And HAPPY BIRTHDAY, my friend!!! Love your new avatar!!! As much as I loved your perky pooch with the droopy ears, seeing your smiling face makes me smile! :)

Just go make an edit and correct it. You won't loose any comments but it will go through approval mode again.
I need that number changed for your chance to win my birthday treat!

Grandmama BoBo 03-29-2006 05:03 AM

Good morning everyone. This is a neat challenge Rox. Will have to see what I come up with. By the way , if your birthday was one day sooner, you would be a fool like me. Wish I could say I was one day older then you, but I can't. Will check back later to see what everybody made.

Wendy G 03-29-2006 05:16 AM

Here is my 1st one.... :)


pammyrn 03-29-2006 05:17 AM

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ROX !!!!!!!!! What a great challenge. I can't wait to get started. One question though does the card open through the mider or does it open regular?

Barbra1224 03-29-2006 05:20 AM

Happy Birthday Roxie! Great new avatar! I had a hunch when I saw your card posted last night that this might be the sketch. Love it! Can't wait to try. Can't wait to check out everyone's cards. Mornin fellow junkies!

bjacobs150 03-29-2006 05:35 AM

This one was hard for me... I don't know if I really cut it the right way. But here are mine....




stampinamy16 03-29-2006 05:41 AM

Here you go - just for you Roxie!


trudee 03-29-2006 05:51 AM

Fabulous sketch!! woo hoo!! And Happy Bday Rox!!!! :D

LodiChick 03-29-2006 05:54 AM

I did 2 but they are kinda in the same theme although look very different. I had a hard time with this one.


Mothers Day bouquet

redhookmommy 03-29-2006 05:57 AM

I have a similar question to Pam's. Is the part that you cut just a layer on the front of a regular rectangular card which opens at the regular folded edge? Or is it a special shaped flap which *is* the part you open?

I am really new to the challenges so perhaps I would know this if I had more experience...

craftycacky 03-29-2006 06:00 AM

This was a great sketch Roxie! I'll be sure to use it again. For my card, I used a color I haven't seen in awhile...


Happy Early Birthday Roxie :)
