Good morning and Happy Friday! So are you getting ready for a spooky weekend? We have a Halloween party for the kiddos this afternoon and Madelyn is ready to put on the costume that I made for her! Then we have trick or treating on Sunday evening. And the best part is that the weather is supposed to cooperate… no snow on Halloween this year! Hopefully you all have time to squeeze in the sketch challenge during the next couple weeks… it’s a fun one:

Since TE is a proud sponsor of the Hope You Can Cling to card drive here on SCS, we’re combining this week’s sketch challenge with sketch crew member Jami’s Hope You Can Cling to Challenge to create a holiday card incorporating the color pink.

We’re also encouraging all of you to mail your cards to the UT MD Anderson Cancer Center. So if you’re up for the extra challenge, then create a holiday card using the sketch that includes the color pink and send it along for the card drive. It’s sure to brighten someone’s day and that’s what this hobby is all about, right!? You can find all of the details on Jami’s challenge HERE and more about the card drive and where to send your cards HERE.

And now here are the regular sketch requirements:

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 TESC149 by Thursday, November 10th. 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 TESC148 sketch! There are so many fabulous entries! You can see all of the entries HERE. The winner of a $20 gift certificate to the TE Store is:
