Inky Paws Challenge #8 - Sketch Challenge

Happy Friday and the the first day of #08 Inky Paws Challenge!  
This month's challenge is a sketch challenge!

I've been seeing fun diagonal cards lately so I thought it would be fun to see what everyone would do with a diagonal layout! Base your card on this sketch and use any Newton's Nook Designs Stamps! 

Are you ready to get your paws inky with us and play along to win a prize? The Challenge winner will receive a $10 store credit to our online store and a Inky Paws Challenge Top Pick Badge to add to your blog! If we get more than 15 participants, we will choose two winners so be sure to tell your friends to play along! 
You have two weeks to play along. Deadline to enter is Friday,  April 11th, 2014 at Midnight CST. The winners will be announced on the NND blog on Monday, March 14th.

Are you ready to play along and get your paws inky?

  • Your project MUST use at least one Newton's Nook Designs stamped image (or free digital stamp - check out our Freebies page).

  9. While going to the local home improvement center and buying locks
    to put in your self might save a little cash, a professional will setup a lock correctly" so that it can discourage even the most prolonged thief. You'll want someone who can respond quickly, who can gain access to any kind of lock without causing any damage and fit new locks if required. Locksmiths and many hardware stores will allow you to bring your locks in to be rekeyed, this can save you money since there is no housecall involved, however you will have to remove and reinstall the locks in your doors yourself.
