To include a picture or scanned artwork in your post:
When you Reply to a thread, scroll down past the box you type your reply in until you see Attach Files and click on Manage Attachments. That will bring up a pop up window where you can upload from your computer. Click on Browse and find the image to upload on your computer, double click on the file and then click on Upload. This will automatically put that file in your post for you.

and do not forget to ALSO UPLOAD your artwork here so that we can keep track of the artwork in one place without having to re-shuffle it in the Mall OR send it as an attachment to preferably full size.

You can see a larger version of the template on our blog.

Thanks Jeanette and Fab for your comments and checking the challenge out.
Yes, this sketch can lead itself to many occasions as is and by simply replacing the heart with another motif or embellishments to many more. Wendy's artwork is always very elegant and so is this sketch.

Hope you guys will enter the contest

Happy New Year to you all. Catherine
