Friday Sketchers Sketch Number 11 sponsored by Alota Rubberstamps

Welcome to Friday Sketchers and sketch number 11. I am Claudia and i am proud to represent the United States for this weeks challenge. Thanks to everyone that has taken part so far with our weekly challenges. Take a peek at the sketch i created for this week.. easy breezy :-) I think we are all busy these days during the Summer with kids off from school and vacation time so this sketch is quite easy. Vaccationtime is also the reason why we do not have a card this from our valued Sassy Sketcher Heidi . No need for many layers but take a look at our Designers work - everybody came up with something different:-)

This weeks sponsor is Alota Rubberstamps. I noticed that many of you have already ordered with Helene and have experienced the excellent customer service that Alota offers. Helene is always kind and very helpful. If you have questions - just ask her. Some other news to know about Altoa is that you can purchase now mounting sheets for your rubberstamps right with Alota. Isn't this convinient?? Now you can order everything at one place.

Alota is sponsoring Palm Tree and a matching sentiment"Aloha" stamp to use together if you wish. Remember when you click on the link - the prices for the stams show as wood mounted. You can also purchase these stamps bare and they are about half the price. We will draw the winner for this fabulous prize next week.

Now for the Sassy Sketcher samples:

Here is the card i made for the USA

This beautiful card is from Murmur representing France:

Kimmie representing Canada made a really cute mermaid card:

Carole representing the Uk came up with something playful and dreamy:
Beatrix representing Germany used the motif section of the sketch as a frame for her image:
Jacqueline representing the Netherlands created this cute Summer card

Now you probably wonder who the winner for the Ladybug and Friends prize is??? I do no longer let you wait! ... ups that was easy for me :-)

Here are your random numbers:4
Timestamp: 2008-07-18 01:41:39 UTC
between 1 and 128 entries random org picked Number 4 and thats our Marlene!!!! Congratulations Marlene, please contact me with your adress. I will have the prize shipped to you. Again thanks to everybody who played along.

And now have fun with this weeks sketch.
