Sweet Sketch Wednesday

Good Morning Friends! I hope you're all doing well as we count down the last week of 2009. Can you believe this? Where does the time go?

I have some very exciting news to share. I received an email from Arlana, owner of Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge blog, inviting me to join the design team. Of course I didn't hesitate to accept! I love her sketches, Arlana challenges me, unbeknownst to her, to create my sketches to be fun to work with and user friendly, yet challenge your creative skills. So I am proud to say that I am the newest member on the design team for Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

Here's the sketch were using:


Arlana sent me a very adorable image from this week's sponsor, Squigglefly. She must know how much I love snowmen! So here's my take on the sketch.


This is Marching Snowman and I'm not sure where he's off to, but he's certainly on a mission to spread some well chilled happiness. I colored him with Copics, attempting to keep to a more earthy, natural palette. Hard to do when I am still working on my collection of Copics, but it did come out pretty nice. The background paper came from My Time Made Easy, Lauren is offering 12 Days of Snowflakes digi-paper for free and it was just what I needed to complete this card.



I was also able to combine this sketch with a wonderful challenge from Digital Tuesday. A sweet little girl who lives in Florida wants to see snow, so her Mommy challenged us to use diamond glitter for lots of snow. This is a close-up of my snow and Aliyah, I'll have you know... it looked like it snowed glitter in my craft room now! LOL

Now be sure to check out Sweet Sketch Wednesday and link up so we can see what you created. I'll be looking! Thanks for stopping by - have a SWEET day.
