Lee-Anne said...

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.

whoo-hoo I finished all 5 of these fab sketches with what I thought was1 0 minutes to spare. Needless to say I was sweating it on this last one to get it finished, photoed and posted in time. Then whe nI was leaving this comment I realized it was msttime and not est time. Oh well, I finished with 2 hours to spare

Ravengirl said...

I just finished my fifth sketch and tried to link it up but the linky is closed. I thought I had at least another hour. Oh well, here is my last :)

Bernadette Bliss said...

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...

anne said...

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