Uploading instructions on RubberStampChat:

To upload a card hosted off site (like your own website, Photobucket or Imagshack) simply click on the insert image icon while composing your post (looks like a little yellow postcard) and paste the URL in the box that pops up.

To include a picture or scanned artwork in your post:
When you Reply to a thread, scroll down past the box you type your reply in until you see Attach Files and click on Manage Attachments. That will bring up a pop up window where you can upload from your computer. Click on Browse and find the image to upload on your computer, double click on the file and then click on Upload. This will automatically put that file in your post for you.

and do not forget to ALSO UPLOAD your artwork here so that we can keep track of the artwork in one place without having to re-shuffle it in the Mall OR send it as an attachment to Stampfrancisco@mac.com preferably full size.

You can see a larger version of the template on our blog.

Thanks Jeanette and Fab for your comments and checking the challenge out.
Yes, this sketch can lead itself to many occasions as is and by simply replacing the heart with another motif or embellishments to many more. Wendy's artwork is always very elegant and so is this sketch.

Hope you guys will enter the contest

Happy New Year to you all. Catherine

Hi Francine,

Thank you for stopping by and for your lovely comments.
Yes this design make it easy to tell a story with just 2 or 3 stamps.
I like how the eyes are drawn to the main subject yet the "message" (text and heart)
are still prominent with none of the section over shaddowing each other. Best wishes for the new year. Catherine
