STAMP SOMETHING - SKETCH SOMETHING!

Whoohoooooo! Friday again - time for another sweet Stamp Something Challenge! This week our very own fabulous DT member Emily created a sketch to use. It is wonderful and I have already saved it to my favorites for use again! I love sketches because it gives you a great starting point while leaving everything wide open for you own interpretation!!! I decided to use another Whimsy image today - this time I used the duck, he is sooo stinkin' cute and I have been looking for a reason to use him again! I know my card is bright, but I was really in the mood for bright, fun colors so I went with it. The dp is not SU! (shhhh.....) but it went sooo well, I just had to use it - I have no idea who makes it, I found it in my stash, lol! I also gave my little fella some bling with some Iridescent Ice, he looks so cute IRL! (click on pic and you can see it better). I had a great time with this sketch and you can too! Just pop over to the Stamp Something Site and get some inspiration from the rest of the DT gals - they are all so very talented, you will be amazed at what they come up with! And, once you do yours, upload the link to the site so we can all see! Also, if you DO participate, you will be entered into the random drawing to win something yummy from our sponsors this week, Layers of Color!! Enjoy your weekend all, I am off to finish prepping for my classes this weekend AND get ready for my handsome husband to come home! Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate you all so much!
