March 4th Sketch #2 Challenge

 Sorry for the delay ... I've been dealing with a cranky computer.
The winner of our March 4th Sketch #2 challenge is:
  It's a tie between #8 Jan Tatomir and #10 Three Trees!!
Congratulations!  Both of you, please go to the winners tab and pick up your Cards in Envy Winner's Button!

The Top Three  are (in no particular order):
  #1 Kristie M
#11 Ellen Parker
#13 Patricia Hays
Congratulations! Please pick up your "Top 3" Button and display it proudly on your blogs.  
Thank you to everyone who joined us for this challenge.  It was a difficult decision, as all the entries were fabulous!  We look forward to seeing you all in our Paper Strips Instead of Ribbon Challenge.

Welcome to our 2nd Sketch Challenge.  For this challenge we'll be using Cards in Envy Sketch #2. I have made a basic "no frills" sketch so everyone feels comfortable playing along.  Please feel free to interpret the sketch in any way you wish as long as we can still see the basics of the sketch in your finished design.

You are free to use any products as long as your card fits in an envelope for regular first class postage (no extra stamps allowed for mailing on these cards--if extra postage or special packaging is required it's not a Card in Envy card).  We have been asked if a 5x5 card is eligible and the answer is yes.  A 5x5 will fit into a regular 5x7 greeting card envelope.  It is unfortunate though that 6x6 cards are not eligible due to their size, which requires additional postage.

So without further delay, I'd like to share with you all the beautiful inspiration cards created by our Design Team:

Sandy (co-host)


 Denise (co-host)

We'd love to see your card creations using the Cards in Envy Sketch #2.  
Winners will be eligible for a Cards in Envy Blog Button. 
This challenge ends March 17th.
Remember all cards linked must be flat to fit in an envelope. 
No lumpy, bumpy embellishments please. 
6x6 Cards are NOT Eligible
Thank you!  Denise


  1. Great new sketch and gorgeous samples by the DT!!

  2. Hi! This is Donna, your Feline Playful volunteer. We are experiencing difficulty in finding your winners. Do you place them some place in particular? It appears that the winners are announced in red or in the original challenge invitation blog post, but I could not find the winners from the Feb 18 challenge. We want your participants to know if they have won, and we love helping your challenge blog, but need some guidance so the FP Monday Winner poster can find your find your winners. Or perhaps you only announce winners once a month on the first Monday? Thanks so much for your help. hugs, Donna

    1. Thanks Donna! I've sent you an email. We will post the winners of our Feb. 18th Polka Dots and/or Stripes challenge in the original challenge blog early Wednesday morning, March 6th.
