  36. Julee, thank you so much for these wonderful sketches. I have had a break from cardmaking as life was a bit busy for a while. These sketches have helped me get my mojo back and start creating again. They were all wonderful, you are very talented. I have managed to complete all 5, but am having trouble linking the last few to each challenge area. They are all on my blog. Thanks again, it was such fun and to have the chance to win Verve stamps is just icing on the cake.

  49. Hi! I just tried to upload my blog site with a picture of the card I made using VSWCMD4 and it said that it was closed. I live here in AZ and it is only around 10:20 PM here. Am I reading the time wrong.

    I loved the sketches, though. Thanks for some great ones...

  50. Those sketches really looks great. Hope to make mine to also look beautiful.
