MFT always has amazing stamp sets around the corner and getting (and stamping with) them early is a special treat.

This month, Joanne and Jody are challenging you to Get Sketchy. Yep, that’s right… we are providing a sketch for you this month! You may enter as many times as you would like, but you may enter ONLY a CARD. One card per entry.

We’re looking for well-executed cards and great technical work. Ready for the challenge? Here are the details:
