The Get Sketchy Challenge Winners

Ohmyohmyohmy but we had some fun with the Get Sketchy Challenge as part of our Go-to Sketches Week celebration, didn't we?

Ohmyohmyohmy!

I love what all y'all did with the sentiments in the speech/thought bubble! I also loved that some of you turned the speech/thought bubble into other things such as clouds. The creativity just astounds me, friends!

And even though I really liked what Angela Fehr, Tanis, Kristyn R., Rachel Schumacher, and Jessica Rosario did with the challenge, the five winning entries are listed below. Check it:

Smile Card by Valerie

Moxie Fab Alert: Not only do I moxie love the trendy camera, tape, graph paper, and numbers that this card uses, but the punny sentiment in the speech bubble is moxie fab!

It's a Boy! Card by Linda E.

Moxie Fab Alert: What's not to love about this little birdie announcing the new arrival? And that clothesline? And those baby boy clothes hanging from it? Moxie cute!

You Totally Rock Card by Brenda Weaver

Moxie Fab Alert: I love the trendy masculine edge in this card that is so not overdone. Love the silhouette, love the supah cool yellow pop big brad, and I moxie love that it's attached with twine. Just like it says--this card totally rocks!

No Place Like Home Card by Lorena (Paperella)

Moxie Fab Alert: Does it get any cuter than this? Those sweet little snails travelin' on down their rick rack road with that punny little sentiment? I think not.

Life is Good Card by Shemaine Smith

Moxie Fab Alert: Life is always good when you capture a funny black and white photo like this and put it on a card. And when that card is made out of kraft with all that swirly goodness--the effect is moxie fab!

Congratulations to all the winners and thanks to everyone who played! This was a really fun challenge, that's fo sho!

Winners, you must send me an email to cedvalson@papercraftsmag.com within two weeks in order to claim your prize. Make sure you include your address and that you put "Get Sketchy Challenge Winner" in the subject line. I'll respond early next week with your "I'm Moxie Fab" challenge winner badges for your blogs.

What kind of fun will we be having next? Be sure and tune in tomorrow for a challenge you will chair-ish! Oh! I probably just let the cat out of the bag now, didn't I! And what cat wouldn't want to be let of any bag it was tucked inside, anyway?

Sketched and out,

~Cath

PS I'm feeling generous today, so leave some love for these sketchy winners and I'll find something yummy from my magic prize drawer for one lucky winner. Just be sure and comment by midnight MDT on Sunday, May 2!

SharonS said...

I just didn't get a good feel for this sketch but these ladies sure did! Wow! How did you choose?

paperella said...

Thank you, thank you, thank you, and thanks everyone for the lovely comments!!! Oh my, this absolutely made my day!! And I really mean it, being a winner in the Moxie Fab World has the only good thing that has happened me today, because when I came back from work today I found someone has broken into my car and stole the radio.
Which makes having been chosen so much more important for me today.
Big hugs from Madrid,
Lorena
