Two of My Favorite Things!

What a fun day this is - I get to show two of my favorite things today... a new Sweet Sketch Wednesday sketch and StampFairy digi stamps! That's right, Gerda at StampFairy is the wonderful sponsor this week of the SSW sketch challenge.

You'll want to participate in the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge this week for your chance to win because the Grand Prize winner will receive 4 digi stamps of their choice at the StampFairy Shop. The only hard thing about that will be deciding which adorable images to pick!  Thanks Gerda for your generous sponsorship and for the adorable images you shared with us this week to create our inspiration cards for everybody to see!

Here's the wonderful sketch this week - what fun is was to work with! I'm telling you there's no end to Arlana's imagination in creating these fantastic sketches week after week.

Isn't this monkey adorable! You can find him HERE at the StampFairy Shop. I colored him with Copics and used these fun papers from Reminisce appropriately called "Monkey Business" and "Going Bananas"! I thought this would be a fun card for "Chev", a friend of my son who has a birthday later this month. When those two boys get together there's all sorts of monkey business going on!

Thanks for stopping by today! Looking forward to seeing what you create with the Sweet Sketch this Wednesday!
