DRS Sketch Something - CHALLENGE

Good Morning!

Thanks to all of you who participated in our Red, Gold, and Green challenge last week. The creations were unique and beautiful! It's always fun to visit each of you and see what you've come up with for the challenge. Thanks again to Whimsy Stamps for sponsoring last week's challenge!

We have a new challenge for you today, a sketch challenge! Our own DT member Emily created this sketch, thanks Emily! This challenge will be a little different than our usual challenges in that it will go for 2 weeks. We have decided to take next week off to focus on family time and the holidays.

We also have a new sponsor for this challenge, DRS Designs! They have generously donated stamps to the DT for creating inspiration samples and also a free stamp for one lucky winner!

Here's a bit about DRS Designs...

DRS Designs is a small family owned company. We have been in the rubber stamp business since 1955 and have been thru many changes since that time. No change was more significant than the addition of art stamps in 1992. In the ensuing 16 years, we have grown our collection to more than 1000 original stamp designs with more being added each month. We offer online shopping from our website, a monthly club - Rubber Mania Monthly, as well as a retail store in Bethel, CT. If you are in the area, stop by our cozy Victorian shop and say hello!
We offer high quality, wood mounted rubber stamps as well as unmounted rubber depending on your preference. We have a 10 person design team and a blog that is updated daily by each member of the team. Every two weeks on a Monday, we host a blog challenge and invite you to join us! Our online site features a gallery for each designer as well as a customer gallery. We hope you will participate in our challenges and email us your cards so we can include them in our growing galleries.
We offer a wide assortment of images, sentiments (serious and humorous) as well as easy background images and technique stamps such as our stained glass and our plaid stamps.
You can find us at and

Here's the sketch for the challenge. Be sure to model your project after this sketch, then post a link here on THIS post to your creation. For a chance to win this blog candy prize, be sure to enter by 7pm EST on Thursday, January 1st! We will be back with an all new challenge in the new year on January 2nd!

Until then, have fun sketching something and Happy Holidays! We look forward to many new challenges in the new year and we hope you'll join us!
