Hi, everyone!  Let's first talk about the DT call.  Wow, I have so many great applicants and will be contacting everyone who applied by Thursday.  After that, the new members of the team will be introduced to you in next week's post ..so stay tuned.  A big thanks to all who applied.

Next, our top 3 for challenge #175.  I am so impressed by the number of entries we have been getting, especially since it is summer here and the kids are home from school. Here are the top 3 - in random order:



Just beautiful, ladies!    Congrats to you and feel free to grab our badge for your blogs.
Every week I look forward to seeing all the entries which come in and this week, each and every entry hit a home run.  It is always so hard to choose just three when every card is a winner!

And now for this week's sketch (another oldie but goodie):
Here are the samples from our team - sure to inspire you:





BEAUTIFUL samples, team!  Each week you outdo yourselves and I so thank you for that.  It is no wonder that our entries are so good with great inspirations like that.  Now I cannot wait to see what you inspire this week.

Welcome to Try Stampin' On Tuesday, our fun and friendly sketch challenge blog.  We have a few openings on our design team and I was wondering if any of you would like to join us.  If so, please email me (cherylsteve.robinson@shaw.ca) by Next Tuesday, July 22nd with your name and a link to your blog.  If you do not have a blog, please include at least 2 samples of your craftiness.  I hope to announce the additions to our team by July 31st.

Now, for a hearty "Thank you" to those of you who LIKED my photo page on facebook.  As you know, I recently received my diploma in professional photography and am hoping to get my name out there.  If you follow facebook, please feel free to visit my page:https://www.facebook.com/C.A.RobinsonTakesPhotos?ref_type=bookmark  and LIKE it if you do.

Ok, that is it for business. So, on with our top 3 from challenge #174.  Here they are (in no particular order).

Challenge #175

Well, what do you know?  I didn't mess up this week.  This post is on time.
Let's start with the top 3 from challenge #173.  Here they are (in random order):



Wow, that was hard - picking three from all the cool cards this week.  Everyone did such a great job - there is a lot of talent out there!  Congratulations to the top three and thank you to the remainder for participating in our challenge.

And now - on to challenge #175...........
The sketch:

And the cards from the team:




These are beautiful cards from the design team and I am sure they will get YOUR creative juice flowing.  I cannot wait to see what everyone makes this week.  Post your cards below.

Now, on a personal note, I have a favour to ask.  Many of you know that I have recently graduated from a professional photography course and want to now make it my "retirement career".  If you have Facebook, I would really appreciate it if you would visit my page: https://www.facebook.com/C.A.RobinsonTakesPhotos?ref_type=bookmark
and "Like" it if you will.  Thanks so much but starting a new business is a s-l-o-w process and I need all the help I can get.
See you later!

I am so sorry!  I do not know how I did it but I totally forgot yesterday was Tuesday.  It was Canada Day and we had a lovely day, but when I woke up this morning it hit me that it is Wednesday.  So please accept my apologies and join me for the Wednesday edition of Try Stampin' On Tuesday.

Here are our top 3 from  week #172 - in no particular order:

Now for this week's sketch:
Remember, our theme all summer is Whatever Makes You Happy.

Wow!  Amazing examples, team!  You ladies really rock and YOU are definitely who make me happy.  I could not do this without you.
So, now let's see what our followers come up with.  I am sure the cards will be awesome.
And, once again, I am so sorry for screwing up.
