Hi all! I am pleased and proud to be hosting the Feb Sketch Challenge here on RSC, and hope you'll play along with me!

This sketch was created by Frances, one of the fabulous designers on Team MFT, and you'll find a sample attached as well.

SKETCH
927

SAMPLE
928

Up for grabs is a $25 gift voucher to My Favorite Things (http://www.mftstamps.com/home/homepage.html), and with a Brand Spankin' New Release (http://www.mftstamps.com/catalog/index.php?cPath=15) Wednesday, February 3rd at 10m EST, it will come in handy!

Here are the deets:
*Upload your MFT creation to the RSC Gallery (http://www.rubberstampchat.net/gallery/showmembers.php?cat=500) using keyword MFTRSC0210
*I will randomly select one winner on March 1st, 2010.
*MFT Stamps must be the primary images used. If you don't currently have any MFT sets, we offer a few very reasonable DIGI Stamps (http://www.mftstamps.com/catalog/index.php?cPath=53), so that won't stand in your way.
*If you're a hands on stamper kinda gal, like me, then we offer both a budget shipping option for orders that contain only stamps, and offer free US shipping over $55.
*The winning post will be proudly displayed on the MFT BLOG (http://www.mftstamps.com/blog/) as well as being announced on this thread.

Any questions? Don't hesitate to email me at kim@mftstamps.com.

Happy Stamping!

We do offer several DIGI's (http://www.mftstamps.com/catalog/index.php?cPath=53) for about $3 each, so that doesn't have to stop you!

The one who recently brought home a puppy! I can totally relate as our pom runs the house now and I never thought we'd have a dog. :))He's even in my online name!

May have to ask her to ink some stamps for me as the PI one I really, really want isn't in stock? Might have to do some speedy post office work (MA to New Mexico to MA)! The majority of my ribbon is from her ribbon store.

'Nuff hints?

A big thank you to Anne for letting me play with your MFT stamping supplies.

The MFT Lady
02-02-2010, 06:27 AM
I'll make this really easy and affordable, and offer a DIGI image from MFT for a buck!

*Check out all our DIGI images HERE (http://www.mftstamps.com/catalog/index.php?cPath=53) and add your favorite $3 DIGI image to your cart.
*Enter code RSCDIGI in the coupon/discount code field at checkout
and your DIGI image will be reduced by $2!

It can't get any easier or simpler or cheaper than that!

piecesandpom
02-02-2010, 10:54 PM
You need to order it. Pick the image you want, put it in your shopping cart, go to checkout and input the RSC digi coupon code, your PayPal/ credit card info. What should happen is that you'll get an email or order confirmation with the steps and information required for you to download the file.

Hope this helps!

In our forum we have a questions and suggestions section and it tells you about the format and size regulations to be able to post. If that does not help it may be that you need to post a minimum of 10 posts to be able to qualify? You can put a shout out to Xray Amy our awesome hostess and she can answer what other questions you may have. Do not despair someone will help you out.
If you need to up your posts the game playing section is easy and posts go fast. Welcome to RSC and you have time and someone can help you much wiser than I. :wave:

Bogongbaby, you should be able to attach to your response. (There isn't supposed to be a count requirement for our sketch challenges.) At the end of the reply to thread is a manage attachment area. Check that and another window will come up.

In that window go to the first line and browse on your computer to your attachment file. Once you see it in that line, you need to make sure you hit open in that window. (How do I know? Let me tell you how many times, no, I won't!) Exit that window, preview your post to make sure it attached and then post. Should be all set.

(Do not go to the URL line; do not pass go, etc. No prize as URL is not the correct way to go.)

Hope this helps!

MFT is releasing some new images tonight; has me rethinking what I might do for this challenge even though I went to the LSS and found some paper for my original thoughts! Guess I'll be stalking the MFT site later tonight!:))

I have quite a few thoughts and my eldest DD would be quite happy!

Hi Bogongbaby

Which part of uploading the picture are you having problems with ??

The MFT Lady
02-03-2010, 07:35 PM
If you post your card in the gallery, just use keyword MFTRSC0210 and then there's no need to upload it to this thread!

Clark, you can post here with no other posts, but you need at least 10 to post pictures on other threads or in the gallery.

fab
02-12-2010, 05:41 PM
No, you also have to upload it to this thread. At the bottom of the "Quick Reply" writing box you need to click on "Go Advanced". At the bottom of the new box look for something about managing an upload. Click that and browse for the picture on your computer. There is a better explanation somewhere on this website but I'm sure where.

We are getting tons of snow. Blegh. I like snow but I'm ready for Spring.

Just a secret, I tried smooches, too, but they didn't show up very well on my second colored image, so this one won!

But, the white smooches did reflect back some of the copic marker color so it's sorta cool and I'm thinking it might work for another MFT image. . .might try it for an unofficial entry if I can make the sketch work for that image.

Lovely card. Interesting how you used mostly red and green and id does not look anything like an Xmas card. Many of us scan our work and find that easier than taking photos of the cards.

02-17-2010, 06:08 PM

The first post on the thread has the rules and it does not mention a limit on entries. There is also a link there for asking the sponsor questions. Best to ask that way. You are likely to get a reply faster.

There is a complete description in one of the threads on the board for all uploading.

In short, you go to the "Go Advanced" button at the bottom of the message writing box. Scroll down to the options area below the box and find the button that says manage attachments and click on that and follow the directions there to navigate to the picture you are trying to upload.

hugs and contact me if you can't get it. :) We'll chat on the phone!

Kelley, that is a sweet card. I love that corner punch and finally bought one. My grand daughter's favorite colors are pink, lime green and orange. I used all three for her birthday card.

Kelley L.
02-25-2010, 05:43 PM
Cool! I am so glad that you could tell the colors. For a minute to me it looked a little lavendar. I was like oh no! and then I remember you said to try scanning my card. :) I hope I can remember that next time.

Thanks for the compliment. I looked at the MFT website and if I win, I will be picking the chocolate sets. Mmmmmm! Lord knows I don't need chocolate! or anything sweet for that matter! A moment lingering in the eyes is a lifetime on the hips for me lately! LOL

Well, I've put mine in sketch challenges. When I click on this link above, where do I go to upload? When I hit upload pictures, I see my cards there already. :)

I get the same 8 pics through my link but if I do a new search there are now 12 but 3 are duplicates. j

I can't find it at either of the links from dragonfaire's post above. Where did it go?

Hi guys! With some help (wink) I figured out how to find your entries and have a winner! The grand prize goes to Lou Lou (courtesy of random.org) for this entry: http://www.rubberstampchat.net/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=6513

BUT since all the entries were so fabulous, I've decided to offer the other 7 participants a $5 gift certificate as well.

Everyone - Please email me at kim@mftstamps.com and I'll
send out your vouchers.

Thanks so much for playing along, it's sincerely been my pleasure!
