{gift with $50 purchase}

You may enter as often as you like, but we must be able to see the sketch in there somewhere. You are free to flip it or turn it as you like!

You do NOT have to use TCM stamps to enter the challenge. However, if you are the winner and you have used TCM stamps on your entry, you will not only receive a TCM stamp set of choice as your prize, but also a coupon for 15% off one additional stamp set of choice which can be used one time within 30 days!!! 

You have until May 31st at 9:00 pm Pacific to link your card!!
