Welcome to Magazine Monday! Did everyone have a good weekend? I hope you found some time to 1). go out and buy our new special issue Go-to Sketches, 2). sit down and devour this magazine and 3). create your own projects from some 66 inspiring sketches.  

If you did get crafty this weekend, why not submit some of your entries? Just a reminder that our submissions deadline for our Holiday Cards & More, Volume 5  issue is tonight at midnight (MDT). Click HERE for more information! 

Even though our Go-to Sketches Week is officially over, I’m going to squeeze in one more day of sketch-filled fun. Three weeks ago we launched our first ever Go-to Sketch Challenge. With sketches from Paper Crafts Go-to Gals Teri Anderson and Maren Benedict as inspiration, submissions poured in for all occasions. We picked these four entries (two per sketch) as our final winners! 

Winner #1 – Cindy Holshouser: 

Cindy Holshouser's Sweetest Flower Card is a direct interpretation of Teri's sketch (Go-to Sketches, p. 9).

 Winner #2 – Vanessa Menhorn: 

Vanessa Menhorn also used Teri's sketch to create this delightful Ladybug Thanks Card.

Editor’s Note: Vanessa was just published for the very first time in our May/June 2010 issue! Not only that, her Rainbow of Butterflies Card (p. 74) made the cover! Click HERE to see cover girl Vanessa literally jumping for joy when her issue arrives in the mail. 

Winner #3 – Nicky Hsu: 

Nicky Hsu felt inspired to create her Welcome, Little One Card from Maren's sketch (Go-to Sketches, p. 33).

Winner #4 – Rosemary Dennis: 

Rosemary Dennis also used Maren's sketch to create her You're So Thoughtful Card.

Congratulations, ladies! Each of you has won either a one-year subscription to Paper Crafts or the special issue of your choice. I’ll be contacting you shortly to discuss your prizes. If you’re interested in seeing all the projects from our first Go-to Sketch Challenge, please visit our gallery HERE.    

Wanna join the fun and participate in our next challenge? We just launched our bling-inspired April Gallery Challenge last Monday. This two-week challenge will run through midnight (MDT) on Monday, April 19. Click HERE to upload your sparkly entries today! 

Happy Monday!
