Fun Challenge For Everyone

Did you all know that Mark's Finest Papers/Speedy TV has LOTS of great challenges for everyone?  All you need to do is click on the link to go to Mark's Finest Papers and sign up for Speedy TV.  It's absolutely free and you will have the opportunity to play along in several different great challenges, including the one I host called Sketch With a Twist.  You can win some darling free stamp sets just by entering challenges, and playing along in card swaps.  Check it out.

My dear friend, co-designer at Word Art Wednesday, and Sister in the Lord, Karen Conner, is our Guest Designer at SketchWith a Twist during the Month of October.  You can check out here sweet blog here:  Karen Conner's Blog - Once you've checked out the blog at Sketch With a Twist, please let me know if you're interested in Guest Designing there.
Here is the project I made for this week's challkenge, where the twist is to make a card or project with a shape other than the ordinary square or rectangle.  I used a Maya Road chipboard tree and stamped it up with Mark's Finest Papers Stamp Set -a Heinrich Co. set called Tweet That.  It's just a darling set that was just released in September.   Also, if you sign up for their free newsletter, you will get free money-saving coupons to get discounts on stamp sets.

Of course, I can't resist entering a challenge (or two).
