It's Time Again! For Another Challenge, That Is!

The geniuses at Digital-Ink Co Challenge Blog have quite a challenge for you this week - a sketch. Personally, I love sketches. It's rare that I actually make a card without them, if I'm being honest. I take sketch inspiration from anywhere.

So here goes....aren't they CUTE!?!

Stamps: Aunt Venie, Uncle Jesse
Paper: Pacific Point, Black, Sahara Sand, White
Ink: Pacific Point
Accessories: Twine, Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware, Prismacolor Pencils, Gamsol, Dimensionals, Scalloped Edge on Cutter

I loved these sweet Body Tots, Aunt Venie and Uncle Jesse by M&M Designz, so I had to use them both! I tried for a little bit of rustic with the rope, but not too rustic because that just wouldn't be my style, which tends to stick with simple =) I'm planning on sending this card to my grandparents, who remind me a little of these images. Aside from the facial hair on Uncle Jesse.

Check out the amazing creations the other ladies have made... 
Boni, Darlene, Diane, Jackie, Micki, Raquel, Teri, Jennifer & Kim

Head on over to the Challenge Blog and get coloring for your chance to win this week. Remember to use DIC005 if you're uploading to SCS or another online gallery and be sure to use Mr. Linky so we can check out your creations - and you've got a chance this week to win this Christmas Warmth Fireplace stamp from Stamping Dragon Designs, the creator of last week's images, of which I used her Autumn Leaves.

Get creating! The sooner you do, the sooner we get to next Monday - and I can't wait to show you my creation. Yep - I was so excited about it, it's already done!
