Before I sign off, I would like to take care of a bit of housekeeping.  While we love to visit your blogs and leave you some love in the form of comments, Word Verification makes this very challenging.  Please consider turning it off.  If you are concerned about 'spam' use the manual release option to have an email sent to you each time a comment is left.  If you are unsure whether or not you have word verification, then yo probably do.  You could try leaving yourself a comment to  see how it works and how challenging it is.  Here are the instructions to remove word verification from your blog.  If you choose to leave it on,  you will still be eligible to win prizes, you will just not have comments from the team.  Thank you for your understanding.
How to turn off Word Verification
1. Sign in to your blog
2. Click on 'Customize'
3. Click on the 'Settings' tab
4. In 'Settings', click on the 'Comments' tab
5. Scroll down until you see 'Show word verification for comments' and make sure 'No' is checked
6. If you are worried about 'spam' comments, and want to moderate comments before they are published on your blog, check the 'Always' box next to 'Comment moderation' (just above where you've just turned off word verification), and enter your email address
7. Click 'Save Settings'

January 15th Sketch

Hello there!

It's time for a new sketch challenge!  But first let's chat about the sponsors for this challenge.  A big thank you goes out to  Creative Embellishments, for sponsoring our January 15th challenge, they are offering a $20.00 gift certificate to one lucky participant!

http://creativeembellishments.com/
Creative Embellishments is a new family owned company that was created by Michael and Nicolle Kramer. We are a husband and wife team who design and manufacture unique, high quality chipboard and wood products. It is our mission is to offer fun and inspiring products to bring out your inner creativity that you can add to any project. In the near future we will be expanding into other mediums such as rubber/acrylic stamps and acrylic embellishments. Please stop over to the Creative Embellishments store and have a look around. 
 
AND thank you to May Arts Ribbon, who are also sponsoring this challenge, offering 2 Spools of their gorgeous ribbon, winners choice, to a second lucky participant!

http://www.mayarts.com/

May Arts was founded in the early 1980’s in Riverside, Connecticut. The original products were high-end silk flowers imported from Taiwan, which were decorated using quality ribbons. The decorative ribbons proved so popular among customers that the business gradually evolved into a dedicated ribbon wholesaler.
As a family-owned and operated business, May Arts began a long-standing tradition of qualityaffordability and exceptional customer service. We are dedicated to carrying on this same tradition by offering high quality products at competitive prices. Our friendly, knowledgeable staff is always happy to answer your questions or to assist you in placing your order.

Now let's get started with the challenge, here is your sketch....



This week we have another guest designer joining us. Please join me in welcoming Debbie Piercy!!


I will let Debbie tell you a bit about herself....

"Hi, I'm Debbie. I am happy to be a Guest Designer at Stuck? today. I have been scrapbooking for about 15 years, and it's always been a form of therapy for me. I love playing with paper and glue and making something pretty with it. Telling the stories about our family is also a priority. I loved working with Laura's sketch and am grateful to share my work with you. I can't wait to see what you all create!"

Here is Debbie's layout based on our sketch.


Thank you for joining us and sharing your talent, Debbie!
Now lets have a look at our gorgeous DT reveals (in alphabetical order!)....








(please click on Libeeti's names to pop over to her blog to see step by step tips about working with a sketch to create a layout)






Once again I am amazed by the talent and diversity of this team!  We cannot wait to see what you create.

Please link up your layouts over in the sidebar by January 29th, 2014 to be in the running for one of our prizes!   All prizes will be drawn randomly using Random.org to pick a number.

When linking your layouts, please make sure it is linked to the specific post your layout is in, not your blog as a whole as it can be hard later in the month to find your layout, especially if you blog often. You can also link from any gallery including Facebook and Flickr.

Feel free to combine this sketch challenge with no more than one other non-sketch challenge, such as a colour challenge.

Thank you for visiting, we cannot wait to see what you create!
