Critter Sketch challenge #18!

Happy Monday!!!! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. I had a very busy weekend, but a great one. Saturday was my last shift at Gymboree (yeahhhhhh), and I am extremely happy to be able to take the summer off with the kids.

Today, I have some very exciting news to share with you. I have been asked to be on the The Critter Sketch challenge Team, and I have accepted. Today is my week to show you my card. The challenge today is a sketch challenge (my favorite). I decided

that I would continue making kids cards for the Ethan & Bella card Drive. I used one of my new Motivet stamps that I just purchased at the Springfield Ma, stamp show. I really like how it turned out. Lots of fun coloring it.

The critter Sketch Challenge is being sponsored by Soft Pencil. Of course we could love to see your Soft Pencil images put to use but it's not required. Our challenges have no vendor restrictions!! Soft Pencils have some FREE images on their blog for you to try :)

Need a little inspiration? Take a look at the DT's creations, and don't be afraid to leave them a little love:
