We are all saddened to hear about the terrible tragedy in Norway. Karen has made an image as a tribute to the victims and is generously offering it as a freebie, here. While we can't stop evil in the world, we can support our friends in Norway and show them that we care. Maybe you can make a card, post it on your blog with a message or send it to a charity to honor of the victims. Or print out the image for your child to color. Please post your ideas or links to your cards in the comment section. We would love to see our friends in Norway flooded with your generosity.

Today begins this month's sketch challenge and the Dudettes have done a banged-up job bringing you their wonderful creations for the sketch.
It is such a pleasure to tell you that once again Creative Inspirations is our sponsor for this month's sketch challenge and they will be awarding the winner 4 jars of their wonderful iridescent water-based paint, bling in a bottle! And good news, as of July 1st, they have added Jeweled Inspirations and Metallic Inspirations to accompany the 55 beautiful colors already on their color palette. If you are unfamiliar with their use, our lovely Anne did a tutorial for you yesterday using the paints. For more examples and further information, please visit Creative Inspirations' blog.
You will have one week to flip the Sketch, twist the Sketch, work the Sketch and submit the Sketch.
You are not required to use Bonibleaux Designs although it would make us really really happy and giggle a lot if you did!
MUST be a masculine themed card, you can use humor, innuendo, be a little naughty, sarcastic, but it has got to be for a DUDE!
Now it's your turn to use the sketch. Check back next Tuesday, July 12 to see if you are the lucky winner of 4 jars of Creative Impressions Paint.
One last thing before you go and that is a sneak peek at next Wednesday's freebie.
