Thanks Ms Wipz for adding the sketches for me. I'm sorry that they are so light.

You all know the drill....and with these sketches being so simple, it gives you lots of leeway in what you choose to do. You can change them in any way as long as the basic layout still comes through.

1) The extra credit for this month is to make a Christmas Card.

2) Use the last craft item that you've bought.

HAVE FUN!!


Also.....Can any one tell me how to add the photos from Photobucket? Donna and Bingolady...how are you still doing it?

Thanks Dee for the sketches. Hope to get started on them on Monday.
Maybe I can figure out what my Christmas card will be this year while working on
one of the sketches.

I still use Photobucket to post my pictures. Not sure what issues you are having
send me an email and let me know maybe I can help you.
Bingolady is locked out of her account for some reason

Since everyone (except me :-? for some reason) is having trouble with
using Photobucket for posting there is another site I found that you might
want to check out.

I did a trial with it a month or so ago and it seemed
to have worked

Donna....Apparently Photobucket has stopped offering "free" 3rd party posting of photos. I can do everything I need to do to the photos, but they will not let me use a "live" link like we always do to post our photo on this site. They want you to upgrade at a cost of $400 to be able to use this feature. This started in June... but it has worked on and off for me...enough to get the few cards that I did make posted on the challenge. I was reading how furious people are that they did it and people who have photos posted all over the web on different sites have broken links and the photos don't show up. Did you pay to upgrade?

I'll check into the link you posted. Thanks. (I'll write soon.)

Dee I did get an email a while back that told me some of my benefits would go away soon.
I did not upgrade or pay the $400 no way no how but for some
reason, I can still access the links to post.
It is really stupid that they would do something like that and for such
an outrageous amount, no wonder everyone is complaining.
I have a card to post so I am going to try it with TinyPic and see how it works.

Let's see if this works.
Here is my sketch #2, I had wanted to make this "scene" like card today
anyway and I was able to fit it into one of the sketches :)
All the stamps are from GinaK
I used Distress inks to create the background following the awesome
Teresa Momber at Crafting the Web.
Will post a link on the bottom of this post to her blog she does
some really cool things with ink.

Nana Donna...That's a beautiful card. I especially like the bird stamps. I love the way that you are always trying new things. I'm beginning to feel my MoJo come back! :dance:

Here is my sketch #3.
I used Altenew layering stamps for the flowers. They are pretty cool
cause each layer is stamped with a different color and it adds so much dimension
to the flowers. It is also my EC - use something new. I recently got some of the
Nuvo drops and I think I need practice, I may have ruined my card. :cry:

PS I used Post Image website to post this picture
