Ready For The Rain

Wednesday greetings to you all!  I'm posting from Washington DC today - a short but good business trip here as we received an award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Energy Star program.  And now it's just a few days away from spring break vacation - can't wait for that!  And I know you just can't wait for the new sketch challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday so let's get started!

This is such a fun sketch that Sally created for all of you. Don't you just love that background with the rounded piece? It's unusual but a quick and easy one to put together.

We have a new sponsor this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and we're so lucky to welcome Paper Addictions to the challenge. Jackie Matthews is the creator of the wonderful and whimsical images you'll find at Paper Addictions.  She's providing 5 digital images to the lucky Grand Prize winner of the challenge this week - yahoo a fabulous prize! Thanks for your generous support Jackie!

Here are the links to her Etsy Shop and Blog:

I chose this darling image called "KatieBug is Ready for the Rain" and thought it was such a cheerful image for spring. KatieBug was colored with Copics with some glitter added to her wings. Her flower umbrella was popped up with crystal lacquer added to the center. I used papers from MME Tangerine collection here.

Now pop on over to Sweet Sketch Wednesday and see the other Paper Addictions images my fellow team mates created with. They're all such beautiful cards - you'll get a ton of inspiration there.

Thanks for stopping by!
