My First Sketch Challenge......for YOU!!!

Yay!! I'm so 'cited!! As you can see I am nearing the 15,000 visitor mark and that's totally cool in itself!! I can't believe that I started a blog......much less that people come and visit me here!! Heehee! I can't tell you how much I really appreciate your comments and love!!

So when I posed the challenge question to my fellow stampers (that's you), the general consensus was that you would like to join in a sketch challenge, followed closely by a themed challenge! So maybe we'll do a themed challenge for 20,000 hits....sound good??

Okay, so I'm not exactly computer savvy....although I think I'm doin' pretty good just to hang with the big dogs in this whole bloggin' thing!! I didn't know A THING about this stuff before my sweet pal Cindy talked me into starting one!! Anyhoo, my point is that I don't have the capabilities of creating my own sketch with a computer program. So I just designed and made my own card and you'll just have to use the actual picture as inspiration!! So here it is................TA DA!!!!!



I was pretty thrilled with it, so I hope you like it too!! I used an adorable image that I received from Linda Palmer and it is a Whipper Snapper stamp, I do believe. I used my Stampin' Up markers to colour this cute little turtle girl (isn't she a doll??) and did some shading around her and then doodled the frame. The main image is matted on Bashful Blue and Close to Cocoa then pop dotted. The base of the card is CtoC and the patterned paper is Shangri La by DMD and I used the ticket corner punch with SU brads in the corner. I used the new Round Tab Punch by SU and the sentiment is from Cute Converse. I also added some moss gingham ribbon and some Prima Flowers. The middle of the flowers were created by putting some Tombow liquid glue in the centers and adding some clear glass beads that I got from the dollar store!! I think it just adds that extra sparkle that my turtle girl deserves!!

And there is some Kimmie's Kandy for 3 lucky winners!! I was able to get my hands on some of the clear acrylic Studio G stamps and blocks which are SO hard to find around here!! Each winner will receive a set of the stamps and a block to go with them, along with some yummy deelish-us ribbon and an assortment of dee-lightful Prima flowers!!!!




So go to it!! Create a card using ANY stamps, ANY paper, ANY products at all!! I can't wait to see what you come up with.....I'm REALLY excited for you to join in!! I will leave this challenge open until next Sunday evening, May 20th and I will post a slideshow of all the entries right here so everyone can share their lovely artwork!! Then I will announce the three, totally random winners the next day!! How's that?? So all you have to do to join in the fun is to create a card using the sketch from my turtle girl card above as inspiration and email it to me!! Also feel free to post it on your blog or in your gallery and tell your friends, so they can play too!!

Now GO!! Stamp!! Create!! I'm so excited......did I say that already?? *snort*
