Mac and Tillie Mae

Happy Wednesday and welcome to a new sketch challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday!  I love the sketch we're using in this week's challenge and the fun, adorable image I selected from our challenge sponsor, Digi Stamp Boutique.

Here's the sketch we're challenging you to use this week. I love it for it's simplicity and how it really shows off the designer papers.  I could do a million cards with this one!

Digi Stamp Boutique is sponsoring the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge this week.  We love DSB as our monthly sponsor because the digis are fabulous - a great selection too. And as a sponsor, Sally Ann, the owner, is so generous.  Our Grand Prize winner will receive six digis of their choice from Digi Stamp Boutique.

I chose this cute new dog called "Mac" for my inspiration card this week.  This looks like our dog, Tillie Mae, a West Highland Terrier and I couldn't resist it.  I colored it with Copics a couple times - cutting it out and popping up the head for some character and dimension.

Here's our Tillie Mae - you can see the resemblence to the digi and see how it was destiny to use that DSB digi this week!

And now for some news at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  We are going back to our original challenge rules that will allow creations with any image to be eligible for the grand prize.  We of course would love it if you would use our sponsor's images in creating your cards, but don't require it.  We value all of our loyal participants and  were very troubled that our change of rules might have turned many of you away from playing in our challenges.

So I hope you will play along with us this week and to give you a little extra inspiration, hop on over to the Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog and see the rest of the creations by the design team Divas - you'll love what they've created this week!

Thanks for stopping by!
