Good morning and Happy Friday! I’m so glad the weekend is finally here, but it’s still rainy and cold in Iowa. What happened to spring!? I’m heading up to Minnesota to visit my grandpa this weekend so perhaps the sun will be shining there! I’m crossing my fingers! I hope you’ll join in the fun of the next TESC sketch challenge. You can find this week’s sketch info both in the SCS TE Forum and right here on my blog:

Just create a card using the above sketch as inspiration. You’re not required to use TE stamps to play, but there’s a bonus prize if you do! To be entered into the prize drawing you must upload your card to Splitcoaststampers using keyword TESC137 by Thursday, May 12th (that gives you two weeks to play along!). And here’s the prize that’s up for grabs:

1. I will randomly select one person from all of the challenge uploads to receive a $10 gift certificate to the TE Store!

2. If you used predominantly TE Stamps on your project you’ll receive an extra $10 bonus for a total $20 gift certificate!

Thanks to everyone who participated in the TESC136 sketch! Once again there are so many inspirational entries! You can see all of the entries HERE. The winner of a $10 gift certificate to the TE Store is:

Niema (Rhayven) for this sweet card! Congrats, Niema!

Just like always, the fabulous sketch crew is back at it again with beautiful samples to inspire you!
