Sweet Louie at Sweet Sketch Wednesday

Happy Wednesday everyone. Another week flying by fast as a fiddle and on top of that, I'm heading out of town on business and wish I had one more day to finish off my tasks before that.  Can't complain too much as I'm heading for warm Miami just as the weather here in Michigan shows its wet October winds. Though it's going fast, I love my Wednesdays because of the new challenges at Sweet Sketch Wednesday!

It's a great sketch this week featuring an oval focal panel and a wonderful opportunity for fun embellishments.

Our favorite Digi Stamp Boutique is our monthly sponsor and the sponsor of this week's challenge. The Grand Prize winner will receive 6 free digi stamps from Digi Stamp Boutique - a wonderful and generous prize.  I hope you'll play along for a chance to win!

I chose this adorable new Louie the teddy bear.  Right now there are four Louie images in a collection with special pricing - just go HERE to see this wonderful collection.  Louie was colored with Copics and the papers used are from Crate Paper's "Emma's Shoppe" and "Portrait Collection".  I love these colors together and think this makes a fun birthday card.

As usual the Sweet Sketch Wednesday design team has created some fabulous inspiration for you using a terrific assortment of Digi Stamp Boutique digis.  Head on over to Sweet Sketch Wednesday to check it out and get inspired to play along with us this week.

Thanks for stopping by!
