Friends Fur-Ever

Welcome back to my Wednesday posts! This time we're introducing a new challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and you're going to love this sketch - at least I do!

Isn't this terrific? I love all  the layers and the way the circle for the image is showcased in the surrounding square.  I think it really brings the focus to the image.  Great job Arlana!

And this week our wonderful sponsor is Digi Stamp Boutique.  Sally Ann, the owner, sponsors us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday every month and we love her digi stamps and the generous prizes she offers our challenge players.  The Grand Prize winner of the challenge this week will receive 6 Digi Stamp Boutique images from her shop. Now that's worth playing for!

Look at this adorable digi - don't you just love this?  It's called "Hattie and Buddy" and I fell in love with this wonderful image immediately!  Hattie is so sweet but it's her dog Buddy that brings the smile to my face!  They were brought to life using Copics and some Prismacolor pencils for highlights and details.  The papers I've hoarded because I love the colors and prints from years ago - Cosmo Cricket's "Jolly by Golly" collection.  A few stickled sparkly snowflakes embellish the card and the sentiment stamp from Stampin' Up! "Friends Fur-Ever" set was a perfect finishing touch.

Now take a minute or two to visit us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday, gaze at the wonderful inspiration from the DT Divas and then play along with us this week. We love seeing the beautiful creations of our players week after week - that's what inspires us!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Sharon, I love your card, this is such a cute image and yes I do love your papers as well. Isn't really funny when you find papers you love you don't want to used them I just thought that was me for being greedy.
Take care and have a lovely week.

That is one gorgeous card, my friend!! Love your colors with Hattie and isn't it funny about certain papers that you just hate to see go. I guess we all have some of those in our stash. Loving that sentiment with this, so perfect! Have a great week.
