Morning Person

It's time for another challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday - boy the week has flown by so far. There's so much going on at home and work right now that I'm not sure I like time going by so fast!  And of late I feel just like this image - worn out before I even get the morning started just thinking of everything I have to do!!!  I definitely am not a morning person like the sentiment says.  I'm more a late night crafter working into the wee hours like right now :)  And no doubt, I'll look like this in the morning too!

We have a terrific sketch for this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  Lots of layers and interest in this one - it's fun to put together so give it a try!

And of course, the hysterical image I've used is from our sponsor of the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge this week - the fabulous Bugaboo Stamps!  Jodie, the owner and illustrator of Bugaboo Stamps, is generously providing 7 digi stamps worth $21 to the lucky Grand Prize winner of the challenge.  I would love for one of my wonderful followers to win so get on over to Sweet Sketch Wednesday and play along!

This is Stella, one of the many characters at Bugaboo Stamps.  You can check out all the Stella digis HERE at the Bugaboo store.  She was colored with Copics and paired with the new "A Happy Heart" papers from My Minds Eye. The flower was made using the MS cornflower punch with many, many layers. The sentiment (closeup below) comes with the digi and I just simply printed it directly onto the patterned paper.

Hopefully I've inspired you to play along this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. You'll find even more inspiration from the rest of the design team over at the Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog - go check it out!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Sharon I feel like Stella this morning I'm also in my pink house coat. Had my surgery yesterday and feel better than I did 3 weeks ago when I had the first lot not as dopey. Love your card and the colours you've used. I know what you mean I burn the candle at both ends. Take care and rest up this weekend.

You did such a great job with Stella and I think we can all totally relate these days with so much going on in our lives. I also really like how you inked up the edges too!

The new blog background is the cutest! I'm getting tired of mine already and need something new too!

Peace & Luv,

I am relating to looking like that and the sad thing is I am a morning person!! I adore your papers and that gorgeous flower. I feel like I am going in a million directions and getting nothing accomplished. Sorry to be late visiting, internet was out.
Have a great day and see you soon.
