My Sketch Challenge

Good morning everyone. I hope you enjoyed your weekend. I did; it just wasn't long enough for me! I found several things shopping yesterday and got good deals because most of the things I bought were discounted 30 and 40 percent and then my friend had a discount scratch off that gave another 30 percent off of that! We both left with several bags of things.

Saturday night on the digi day event at card universe we sure had a fun time! I think Stef had a little too much sugar or someone spiked her coffee because this is a picture I snapped of her at one point

LOL! That crazy Stef!

One of the challenges at digi day was a sketch that I made. Here's the card I made as a sample for the sketch

(click to enlarge)

I used the cute little Simon the Squirrel from Squigglefly. I think he is a real bargain at 99 cents! I colored him with these copics

What's hard to see in the photo is at the bottom on the right I curled up the corner of the designer paper and there is a little acorn brad revealed. The words were printed out with my computer, and actually by using a sentiment there I kind of cheated on my own sketch!

Today I will set up the voting poll for the projects that were submitted for this challenge and for Stef's recipe challenge. Voting will take place tomorrow so I'll let you know about where to go vote. There will be a prize given for the project with most votes, but also one for judge's choice.

Today is a new challenge on the Squigglefly blog too! I'm off to see what it is right now! I hope you have a great Monday and thanks for looking!
