Card Cafe Thursday featuring our August sketch challenge!

Card Cafe Thursday featuring our August sketch challenge!

We love sharing a challenge with you and love when we have so many wonderful submissions from YOU! Recently we shared a sketch from our summer issue! Here was the challenge:

"Create a "thinking of you" or "for you" card for someone who needs it right now. Think of that person in your life who is facing some struggles and share a little kindness with them."

Here is the sketch from the challenge: 


We received many cards and would love to share several of them with you today! If you hover on the card you'll see who they were created by.



Cute story from Sandi: "Here is the card I made with the sketch you shared.  It is a card to celebrate my granddaughter’s first day of kindergarten. Purple is her favorite color so I am sending her a little gift of a couple bottles of nail polish along with the card. She loves getting packages from grandma."  We're sure she does Sandi! How sweet!





Thank you ladies for playing along with our sketch challenge! The randomly selected winner is Joan Demers:


Congratulations Joan! Please send your mailing information to us at with "Sketch Challenge Winner" in your reference line!
