Hello all. Today is a very special day on the Waltzingmouse Stamps Sketch Challenge Blog as we celebrate our 100th sketch challenge. June 6, 2010 we had our very first sketch challenge and since that time we have enjoyed bringing you inspiring sketches and Waltzingmouse Stamps inspiration week after week.
We are pleased to have you join us this week to help celebrate. We have some very special details to make the occasion a momentous one.
In addition to our regular Top Mouse Awards, we have some very special treats for you. We always enjoy awarding a free set of choice to a lucky winner each week, and we want to spread the WMS love even more. Naturally we will randomly select a winner this week, just like we have in weeks past, but that’s not all. Once we have 50 players link up their projects this week we will draw for TWO winners. If we have 100 players, we will draw for THREE winners…and so on. So tell your friends, grab the neighbors – throw out the dog and shut the front door and let’s play. But that’s not all. (I feel like an infomercial)
Before we give you the big kahuna of surprises, let’s announce our Top Mouse Winners from last week’s sketch. And the winners are…
Aren’t these amazing? You may already have a Top Mouse Blog Badge, but we have revamped the Top Mouse Blog Badges to reflect our new look, so please send me an e-mail at lmercurio at sbcglobal dot net and I will provide you with the HTML code for the updated badge. We hope you will display it proudly. Thank you for your participation and support of the challenge.
And the lucky winner from all the participants to receive a complimentary Waltzingmouse Stamps set of choice is:
Congratulations, Suzanne! Please send Claire an e-mail at Claire.email@example.com. Provide her with your contact information and set choice, and she will pack up your selection and send it on its way to you.
As usual, we have another great inspirational sketch for you today. We hope that you will follow your creative mojo and interpret the sketch as you see fit. Feel free to flip or rotate the sketch. As you can see from the Mischief Makers’ and Design Team samples, there are many interpretations of the sketch. Set your mojo free and go with the flow.
To help motivate you, take a peek at the wonderful projects the Mischief Makers have for you today:
And here is a bit of inspiration from our Design Team members:
Motivated yet? We sure hope so. Grab your supplies and let’s see that Waltzingmouse creativity that you have shown us each week. We ask that you use at lease one WMS image on your submission. We reserve the right to remove entries that do not comply with the guidelines. It’s just not fair to the players who do. Including WMS images on your project adds to the creative inspiration we gain each week from your wonderful creations.
Remember to post your projects using Inlinkz below, no later than 12:00 noon Central time on Friday, June 8, 2012. We will announce the winner of the stamp set and the new Top Mouse Award winners when the new sketch challenge is posted on Saturday, June 9th. Please use a direct link to your project and feel free to enter as many times as you like!
You don’t have to have a blog to play along with the sketch challenge. If you upload your project to any on-line galleries or forums, please use the keyword of WMSC100. As always you are welcome and encouraged to upload your project to your album in the Waltzingmouse Stamps Gallery!
NOW – FOR THE REALLY BIG NEWS! We always love the inspiration you share with us each week and we want to reward that creativity, so in addition to our three Top Mouse winners, the Mischief Makers and Design Team will select one lucky winner to serve as a GUEST MISCHIEF MAKER for a month. For 4 weeks we will provide the GUEST MISCHIEF MAKER with the weekly sketches ahead of time so she can create inspiration, right along with the other Mischief Makers and have her project highlighted here on this blog as well as a sweet store discount during her guest-spot. Are you as excited as we are?
Are you ready to get started with the sketch challenge? Ready…set…CREATE! We hope that you will tell your friends about our challenge. Have a wonderfully creative week! We can’t wait to see the amazing creations you have in store for us.
