Happy May 1st!! (new sketch challenge)

 Good Morning!! There are two days a month that I love the most, the 25th and the 1st. So much fun stuff goes on those 2 days. The reveal of our newest kit, the reveal of our newest sketch challenge, and when our kit officially goes on sale (unless it is already sold out like our May kit). I have a lot to share with you today include our first project from our new Delightful Designer, Missy. :-)

Let's start by sharing the kits again. I apologize that they are already sold out but as I mentioned in a previous post, due to my move in 3 months I really need to keep my inventory to a minimum so I cannot "carry" any extra kits - I will be ordering only a few kits over the customers that have subscriptions. Once I get settled in my new place that will change. There are so many more benefits to subscribing and there is absolutely no obligation. Not only do you guarantee yourself a kit for your desired subscription term but you get a discount on the price of the kit AND you can cancel at ANY TIME without penalties or financial responsibility to fulfill your subscription term.


Here are those fabulous kits:

Next I would like to share with you our new sketch challenge.  

 This sketch was designed by our Delightful sketch Designer Abby!!!  :-)  Thank you Abby for another wonderful and inspiring sketch to play along with.  So, play along with this sketch for your chance to win our June monthly kit.  

OH, oh, wait there is something new I would like to add to our monthly sketch challenge.  :-)  It is a CARD SKETCH.  Sometimes LO sketches are hard to interpret into a card so our new Delightful Designer, Karen offered to create some card sketches for us to play along with in the upcoming months.  So here is this months CARD SKETCH.   


So for now here are the rules (these may change in upcoming months).  You can play along with either sketch.  I will have two linky tools set up in the side bar where you can upload your projects.  Please upload your project in the correct linky tool.  You may have two chances to win if you play along with both sketches.  I know the card sketch is a little more CAS for scrapbookers but this would give you a little more room to add your own creative touches.  :-)  

When I chose the winner at the end of the month I will combine the entries and chose one winner.  The winner will have a choice of which kit they would like.  This is what may change in later dates - I would like to eventually have 2 winners, a card sketch winner and a LO sketch winner.  

Now today I have some amazing inspiration to share with your from our newest Delightful Designer, Missy, using our May scrapbook kit AND our May LO sketch.  

  
MISSY

Can you say WOW!!! Amazing!!!  I am amazed at all the detail our designers put in to their projects; misting, inking, fussy cutting, and layering....it is all beautiful.  For more details and inspiration or just to welcome Missy to the team, please stop by her blog

We will be sponsoring two places this month so be on the look out for updates on where and when those will be.  One challenge you will be playing for your chance to win our May scrapbook kit and the other challenge you will be playing for your chance to win a $40 gift certificate to our store.  WOW, wow, wow!!

Alright well I think that is it for now which is good because my hand is starting to cramp from all this typing (lol)  and my dogs are begging to go outside. 

One last thing, we will be added a new product to our store within the next couple days, Mister Huey's mists!!!  :-)
