My Furry Friend

Happy July 4th to all of you - especially those in the U.S. celebrating our nation's birthday today.  What a fun way to start off the holiday - a new challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday with one of our favorite sponsors.

To start us off, here's the sketch to follow this week. I just love this sketch - plenty of layers for me and I love the unusual square behind the oval. It adds such interest and frames that oval just perfectly, making the image even more of a focal point.

We're so happy to have StampFairy back again this week as our challenge sponsor!  We all love those adorable teddy bears, kids and critters that Gerda creates - everyone of them instantly bring a smile to the face! The lucky Grand Prize winner of the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge will receive a $10 Gift Certificate to StampFairy - yahoo! Thanks Gerda for your generosity!

I chose this newly released and utterly irresistable pup called "Hugo".  To me its a she and her name is Matilda Mae - that's the name of our West Highland Terrier that looks just like this adorable dog.  I colored this wonderful image with Copics and the papers are a combination from three different companies.  There are several "Westie" images in the StampFairy Hugo collection and you'll love them all.

Here's our little sweetie Matilda Mae - see the resemblance?!!

Now, time to check out the terrific samples my fellow Divas created for your inspiration at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  And then I hope you'll give this week's sketch a try and play along with us.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
