Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - A Sketch

This week we have a fabulous sketch for you to follow, or be creative with. I love sketches, they always give me a guide. Here's the great sketch we have:

I rotated it for my card. I also used the beautiful image from Mo's Digital Pencil called Bye Bye. I just love her. She so reminds me of my little girls, who are now big girls, 19 and 9, riding on their little trikes with not a care in the world. The sentiment is from Mo's also and is a quote from Dr. Suess. I used the paper We R Memory Keepers called Hippity Hoppity. It has great colors. I colored my little darling with my copics and added stickles to the fur on her collar so it looked furry and glittery. My bow is from Nicole Heady's Papertrey company. Fabulous ribbon there.

Or prize this week is an amazing $15.00 to spend at

Mo's Digital Pencil

She has so many amazing images it would be hard to choose.

We are also sponsoring Operation Write Home this week. Their mission is to send cards to soldiers to write home on. September is their birthday month and there's tons of prizes offered for cards sent in. Check out their site and all the information to send in your cards. Oh yeah, don't forget to mention that you heard about it from our challenge.

Hello Carolyn, ADORABLE. I love ladybugs... this is a cutie. the die-cut you used to set your image is very nice. Love your papers and colors they blend so well with your image. very good idea to have dots in paper, and ribbon, to recall the lady bug.
