PTT#7- Sketchy Tuesdays + Easel Card + Shamrock

Wow what a week!  We had some really great entries for our 3D St Patties Day challenge. Thanks so much for all your creativity!

Now on to week 3 of our March Madness. To be eligible for The Big $45 online Gift Card to CSN stores you need to have this weeks challenge completed and entered to our linky no later than 11:59pm MTN on Wednesday. You also must have entered our 1st two challenge for March Madness to be eligible. We will announce our winner on Thursday.

We will be taking entries all week for the chance to win the weekly prize. To win weekly prizes you need not have entered the 1st two challenges.
This week we have a fantastically adorable sponsor.....BABY BUD DESIGNS!

Welcome to the Enchanted and Whimsical world of Baby Bud Designs!
My name is Mary Anne, I live in Ontario Canada. I have been interested and passionate about art most of my life. I started card making and stamping with my daughter about 2 years ago. I am new at this but she is an old hand at stamping. I found myself intrigued about designing my own cards and stamps and pulled out some old designs I had done back in 2000 called "baby bud". Amazingly enough they transcribed very nicely to the "stamping world" and the rest is history. I am delighted to "introduce you to my old friends and share them with you. I hope they bring a smile to your face as they have mine for so long!!

The Baby Bud illustrations have been drawn ‘free hand’ by the artist. There is never any computer re-imaging involved. Their quirky little imperfections are what make them original, unique and whimsical and reminds the viewer that they were created from the heart.
The winner of this weeks challenge will receive 3 Digi's of your choice from Baby Bud Designs!

We also have the creative talents of Twosdays Techniques sponsoring us for the entire month of March!

Lisa was looking online for a website that had videos on the harder techniques.  You know how some techniques you just HAVE to see to really get how to do them?  She couldn’t find any!  So, she decided to start her own!  She asked her good friend Pattie if she would join her in this endeavor and the two of them started Twosday’s Techniques!  Each Tuesday they both submit a technique video, so we named the site Twosday’s Techniques (Two Videos on Tuesday!  Hehe……too cutesy?)

We use our own designs for all the creations and have even come up with our own Techniques quite a few times!   We keep the cost low so it won’t be a hardship for those of you on a budget.  Come check us out at:  http://twosdaystechniques.com/     You must register, but don’t have to pay to see what we have to offer.  Lisa has two videos that are free, under the heading ‘Links of Interest’ click on the Sample Techniques button!!

If you have played along with all of the March Madness challenges you will be placed in the drawing for an amazing prize from Twosdays Techniques: a 6 month membership to their site!!!

Now for this weeks challenge:  Use this Sketch by Stacy Koo and this Video from Patty at Twosdays Techniques to create an Easel card + we would like to see your SHAMROCKS!!!

For the entry with the best St. Patrick's Themed card following our above challenge, you will receive a fabulous prize from: Circle B Enterprises.

**$20 store credit**
My name is Veronica Baker thou I am known in the Scrapbooking world as Just A Pac Rat. I am the owner of Circle B Enterprises Scrapbooking and more store and Spur's Computer Cures in Webb City, MO. 

I used to have around 4000 Scrapbook related items listed on EBay for almost 10 years, but about 8 months ago I decided to go strictly my own website and store front.  This decision was mostly made because of EBay’s new price increase. I like to keep my prices low (presently 50% off retail prices) and just couldn't afford to do it on EBay anymore. I am slowly but surely getting my entire inventory listed online at
I hope you will come visit my little store often and watch it grow! Also visit me at my creative blog http://circlebenterprises.blogspot.com/ where I show what I have created for challenges and Operation Write Home!

Now your Party Planners have been super busy planning this weeks bash!!!  They have been so lucky to use images curtsy of Baby Bud Designs as well as beautiful flowers from Circle B Enterprises.  We had our talented in house Sketch Designer Stacy Koo provide us with this weeks sketch.  AND we were able to have Patty from Twosdays Techniques show us all how to create an Easel Card.  Thanks so much {{clapping}} for our amazing sponsors!  We are so very grateful!!!

Here are your Party Planners:
