Happy Wednesday friends! This week is blowing by so fast - already midweek and still so much to get done before the weekend. My daughter is celebrating her last day of middle school today - talk about blowing by fast, I just can't believe my baby will be in high school next year!

Today starts off a new challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and we have a terrific sketch this week that is fun to use.

This is one that we introduced in week 45 - a favorite of ours that we're bringing back again for the challenge this week. I just love all the circle layers and how it works so well with the image I chose from Digi Stamp Characters, our sponsor this week.

The lucky Grand Prize winner of the sketch challenge this week will receive three images of their choice from Digi Stamp Characters and their creator Heather Ellis.  There are so many sweet, adorable images available at Digi Stamp Characters - take a look around and see the wonderful selection.  Thank you Heather for your generous sponsorship this week!

I chose this darling image from Digi Stamp Characters, called Mouse in the House, to create with. I just loved this sweet mouse in all her bubbles - after all, a bubble bath is loads of fun! She was colored with Copics and some crystal lacquer added to the bubbles for shine and dimension. I choose the papers to go with the bubble theme - the background paper looked like a bunch of bubbles and is "Out of Print" by Basic Grey and the others from my stash.

I hope you find some time to join in on the sketch challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. Stop on over and get a little inspiration from the creations that my team mates are showcasing with Digi Stamp Character images. Lots of wonderful cards to gaze at.

Thanks for stopping by!

I've had trouble using my busy DP. I never can match it up right. I've been paying attention to your cards. You always use colorful DP & the image is still the star of the show the way you diecut them on your card.

You always do a great job & I love following your blog! Lots of inspiration.
