A {Cramming} Sketch For You To Try

Well it's Saturday and time for Jen's Sketch For You To Try! Today we are being sponsored by the fun little stamp company, The Stamping Boutique! (Not to be confused with Scrapper's Boutique where I'll be most of the day today working and all night tonight playing!)

I just LOVE this little Back-to-School-House image, but I did have a little hiccup along the way in the process of getting this card made. It was a challenge, lemme tell ya! Here's my story and I'm stickin' to it: Now that school has started back, Eric is back to doing what he loves.
He writes a few of the high school football game stories for the Dallas Morning News and Fort Worth Star-Telegram (and he actually gets paid to do so!). Those are on Friday nights, when I usually sit down to make my SFYTT card. Well, he takes my laptop with him so that he can just submit the stories quickly before his deadlines. Guess what? My laptop is where I had the digital image saved for this card and I had forgotten to print it off before he left for the game. So guess what I did? I made the card without the image and added it this morning. eeks! How about that for a card challenge? I guess there's a first time for everything. Try it.

Did ya'll know that you're welcome to play along in the Sketch For You To Try? You don't even have to make your card blindfolded like I practically did. Thank you to The Stamping Boutique for sponsoring this week! One random SFYTT participant this week will win 3 digi images of their choice!! Good luck and happy stamping!!

Jen is also looking for next month's guest designer already, so I suggest you get your thinking caps on and PLAY! All you have to do is make a card using the sketch and link it up on her blog post for this week HERE. If you need to cram before you actually "take the test", here's a little inspiration from the SFYTT faculty:
