STAMP SOMETHING - SKETCH SOMETHING

Happy Friday all!!! WHOOHOO - school is done for the summer!!! Yesterday was the last day so no driving to school this morning, just lazing around in my pjs :-) And, today is the Stamp Something Challenge which is one of the highlights of my week! This week's challenge is a sketch challenge and it is a fabulous sketch!! And, we are being sponsored by DogGonestamps, and let me tell you, they have some uber cute stamps like the wizard one I used for my card today. He was soooo much fun to color AND I got to try out my new sparkly fluff that I got from OCL - I used the white on his beard, and the red on the linings of his cloak(click on the pic to see the detail). And, of course no wizard should be without a wand that works so I added some Iridescent Ice to make sure he had some zing to it - LOL! Please go over to the Stamp Something site and check out the rest of the fun cards the DT gals put together for this challenge, they are fabulous!! And, why not play along with the sketch? Just make sure you upload your link to the post so we can all check it out and you get entered in to win something amazing from our sponsor!! I will leave you the recipe as I am off to do a few errands and then hopefully spend the afternoon scrapbooking as I have quite a few layouts spinning around in my head right now that I need to get down on paper!! Have a wonderful weekend all, and thanks so much for stopping by - I will back tomorrow to share something fun!
