Hello everyone, look what we have here! This is called a "YOUR CHOICE" Sketch challenge. We've noticed in some of your blog post when we visit, that you mention that the sketch was difficult for you, or some of you like a Clean and Simple Design. Well, we have listened to you and are presenting here for you today a chance to do our sketch challenge and you make a choice of the one you prefer. Either the CAS style or a more "Detailed" sketch for those of you who are accustomed to our ornate style. Why not enter one of each this week. We want everyone to play and have fun with our sketches-so we are offering you this as a trial.

Enter one style or both this week.
Just have fun and come play with us :)

This Weeks (MMSC37) Bonus Sponsor is....
Sweet Scrap Deal

Thank you Charlene for your sponsorship this week. Here is her write up.....
"After getting laid off last summer I decided to follow a passion of mine, scrapbooking. I love to scrapbook and shop for scrapbook products! My desire was to be a business owner and bring the best deals out there to scrapbookers and card makers. I began this online store with a vision of "one deal a day" but it has grown into so much more! You'll find that everything is on sale all of the time! There is also a clearance section with items that are priced so low, you can't afford not to scrap!I love being able to supply all of you with sweet deals on quality scrapbooking goodies. One thing that sets me apart from other online stores too, is that I offer scrapbook classes. I hold meet-ups in the local Roseville/Rocklin, CA area where we get together and work on 12 x 12 layouts, mini albums/books, original scrap/stamp projects and cards. I will soon be posting these layouts and projects for sale in my store as well. The kits will be adorable and easy to put together! My favorite brands to sell are Cosmo Cricket, My Mind's Eye, Basic Grey, Jenni Bowlin, American Crafts, Hero Arts, Fancy Pants, Sasafrass, Prima Marketing, Hampton Art, Unity Stamp Co, and well, there are too many to list! For more information on my store and all the classes I offer, please visit my website at or my blog . I look forward to serving you and your scrapbook needs!"

This is the prize for this weeks MMSC37 bonus winner...

Cosmo Cricket Girl Friday Paper Crafting Kit (this includes: 12 double-sided design papers, 19 Cardstock stickers, 18 cut-apart element cards & 8 cut-apart borders)

For this weeks sketch I used a wonderful vintage stamp
from our sponsor D'Amour Allure.
I found these great plastic treat containers from Archivers.
I am making several of these for co-workers for Valentines!


  1. Hi Denise - this is just gorgeous. I love your vintage feel to this Valentine treat box! GORGEOUS!! The colours and bling work so well to create a very 'nostalgic' feel - perfect! You are amazing Denise with all of the detail you do - you can tell a lot of 'heart' has gone into your project! Thanks for sharing! {{{hugs}}}
