Sweet Sketch Wednesday #34

Happy Sweet Wednesday to you! Arlana has a wonderful sketch for you to play with this week, so I do hope you'll join us. Not to mention that we have the fabulous Mo from Mo's Digital Pencil sponsoring this week! Whoo-hoo!!



I recently won one of Mo's images for making the Top 3 on another challenge blog. I was so excited but it took me a long time to decide on which image. Yeah, right. It took me all of about 3 seconds - I knew which one I wanted. I'd been admiring this image for a long time.



This is Mummu dancing with her granddaughter. I think this is just the sweetest image ever! I don't remember dancing with my grandma, but it does remind me of the great time I always had spending time with her.

The circles are from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff All-Around Phrases. It's easy to digitally color these (in .png format) in any photo editing software. When I was done coloring I then layered them because the original is only two rows of dots. Then cut them out.

I set out to find the perfect sentiment for this card. I found one...


This is actually a Hopi Indian saying and I think it's absolutely perfect for this image.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to head on over to Sweet Sketch Wednesday to play along and see what the other team member's have to share with you.

Oh Melissa, this is such a great image and though I could never imagine my bible thumping Grandma dancing, it does make me remember wishing she would play and dance with us back then. No matter - you did an outstanding job and I love how you colored the image. ;D
