Hello again friends! I missed you last week, but I'm back and ready for the month of October (I think)! It's going to be a fun month ahead! I wanted to thank EVERYONE for their participation in our September Sketch challenge ... it was so fun to see all of the different takes on one simple sketch—and congrats to our winner, too! We saw some brand new product as well as some of our 'older' products pop up ... that is always fun to see the mix of supplies that our fans are using!
For the month of October we have World Card Making Day ... yay! So, our sketch must be a card sketch, right? Right! I actually designed the card a while ago using our Summer's End collection and I liked how it turned out—simple, yet sophisticated—so I thought it made for the perfect sketch—there is so much you can do with this one and I can't wait to see what you come up with! Layers are really hip right now, so layer it up on this one!
Plus, we're working with Operation Write Home this month to collect cards for our soldiers, so please consider participating in that as well (we'll have more details on the blog this Saturday)! We are very blessed to have brave men and women fighting for our freedoms day in and day out!
Thanks for being the best fans any company could ask for ... we're looking forward to seeing your designs (sketch or no sketch), and stay tuned for some fun new stuff coming soon from Fancy Pants Designs!
