Card creating Tuesday January 17, 2012 Crop-a-dile or Sketch Card


Today the Design Team was challenge to use the sketch give and/or a Crop-a-dile.
Not know what a crop-a-dile is?
It is a tool to punch holes for eyelets, you can also use it as a hole punch. It does almost any size eyelets, also you can set it so you will have a even row of punches/eyelets. It is addicting and it will be in my shop next week. All of my shop prices online and in-store are 10% off retail ALL the time!
What a crazy and exciting next 7 days!!!
I will also have a deal of the day online for all of my web friends
(locals can also purchase these and then pick up in the store ;)

Here is the sketch that the team was given to make something with.
Also there is a color scheme they followed.
This is the same sketch and colors for the Card challenge over on my challenge blog....


SKETCH
Here are a few samples that we have made with this sketch, we would LOVE for you to make a project with this sketch and enter in our Card Sketch Challenge. You could win a $10 gift Certificate to my webstore (which will be back up next week)
To enter or look at this challenge in its entirety, please visit
http://ericascraftroomchallenges.blogspot.com/
(there is also a scrapbook challenge going on now too)
We will have one scrapbook challenge and one card challenge each month. Or every 2 weeks.
You get two weeks to work on your project from the time we announce it!
To enter this contest, all you have to do is use this sketch to make a card, also use the colors of the challenge- Red, Brown and/or pink. Then post it on YOUR blog and then give the link to the challenge blog.
Then to 'link' your project all you have to do is click on your post's title and it will take to to the page of that entry, then copy and paste the web address, into my blog, it will ask for your name, the extended blog address and your email.... THAT IS IT! It is easier than it seems. I was always intimidated by the link up.... but I tried it and it was SO easy! I will also have a Ustream tomorrow night (Wednesday January 18, 2012 at 9:00pm EST and I will record it for you all if you cannot make it, I will also cover some blog basics and sticky blog posts, adding blinkies... and more!) You can also click on the word Challenges at the top of my blog and it will take you right there!
