Sketch and Color Challenge #74 Winner

Winner announcement time!   If you played along with challenge #74 then we may be announcing your name!

The winner of the main challenge, receiving a $15.00 gift certificate to the YNS Store, is lucky participant #13, Hos Dorte!

The winner of the social media portion of the challenge, receiving a $20.00 gift certificate to the YNS Store is Stamping Kitty who shared her creation on Splitcoaststampers!

Congratulations to both winners!  Please contact Karen via the contact us link at the bottom of the site.


The Top Pick for the challenge is this card by Anita Madden!

Anita created a colorful, fun card with just a bit of scare.   Not sure that the bat from Fang-tastic Halloween could ever be scary with that grin, but if this card came to life then start running!  With gumdrops and the slime underneath the sentiment , there is so much to like about Anita’s card.


Thank you to everyone who played along with challenge #74!

Enter challenge #75 for another chance to win.  We have a new sketch and spooky color combo to choose from!
