Card Sketch with Chocolate!

As my blog stats, I am an American Living in Germany. And today marks the one year mark that we have been here. So as a way to celebrate, I am uploading a new card sketch. A long with it, I will be offering one lucky person a good assortment of German Chocolates. Now, I know most people might think that scrap supplies might be a nicer prize. But first off, I am in Germany. There is no place to really shop here for supplies. I rely on my friends and family to keep me stocked. Plus, I am living in the land of fabulous chocolate. So I thought it was a great idea for a prize since I am celebrating being here. Now if you are one of those who are thinking, "isn't chocolate, chocolate?" The answer is no! German chocolate is soooo good!

Like I mentioned, one lucky person will win this fabulous chocolate. You have from today until Next Saturday, September 29th to complete this card sketch and link your card you made in the comment section. I will then draw one lucky winner on Sunday September 30th from all those who linked their card creations.

As stated above, I will post the winner on September 30th. The winner will have one week to contact me with their name, address and email address. If I do not hear from the winner, then I will draw a new winner on October 7th.

For those that are interested in my families adjustment to life in Germany, you can see my personal blog at Living In Germany .

Have a great weekend! I will be back Monday with a 12 x 12 Layout Sketch!

Monica, you crack me up! Did I think you would actually do the sketch, maybe. Be the first to post, no way.

And I must say.....I love your card. Did you by chance just get Urban Lily in the Scrap Freak store? lol

The Card Rocks! Congrats on being the first entered into the drawing!

Hi Tamara

I couldn't pass up a chance for chocolate, thanks for the sketch challenge.

Here is the link to the simple card I made. The pattern paper and the metallic leaves are both from the $1 spot at Target
