DIC0006 - Sketch Challenge

Good Monday Morning!!!

Today's challenge over on the Digital-Ink Co. Challenge Blog is a SKETCH and we are anxious to see what you create! The DT has been having a lot of fun with this one and we have all used images from M&M Designz for our creations. Judy has such a wonderful array of creations available over at the DIC Shoppe ... please jump on over and check them out. Be sure to check out the other designers while you are there ... you will find exactly what you've been looking for AND MORE!!!

I have used a couple images from Judy's BODY TOT series ... aren't they adorable!!! Please meet Aunt Venie and Uncle Jesse!! After printing, I have used Prisma Color Markers for my coloring and cut them out with a Fiskars Swivel Craft Knife. My base card is Really Rust cs, the designer paper is from the Debbie Mumm Harvest & Holiday pack from JoAnn's and the frame is by Nestabilities. I've used the SU Country Blessings stamp set for my sentiment and the slit punch for the corners. A few springs punched with the Martha Stewart branch punch was all that was needed to finish my creation.

Don't forget there's a HUGE 50% off SALE going on right now so please be sure to hop on over and make your selections !!!

TODAY'S PRIZE for one lucky winner will be this Stamping Dragon Design image! So perfect for those Christmas cards we all need to start creating!! So be sure to play along and get your creation added to Mr. Linky over on the Challenge Blog before 8:00 PM, Sunday, October 18th.

Now if you don't mind, I'd like to share yet another M&M Designz image with you and this time I'd like you to meet who I call "Sweet Cheeks" ... but the image title is "ALL DRESSED UP". Isn't she just ADORABLE!!!!
I've used the same layout basis for this creation and Prisma Pencils/Gamsol for coloring. My designer paper is by Daisy D's and the sentiment is by Art Impressions. The scallop square was created using the Nestabilities Scallop Square dies.
I'm having so much fun with these digital images ... if you haven't tried them yet ... PLEASE pop on over and check them out. Hey they're now 50% off ... great time to give 'em a whirl!!!

THANKS SO much for joining me today and don't forget to check out what the other DIC design team members have created for your viewing pleasure and inspiration.

I had looked for a sentiment that would've been more "thanksgiving"ish, then went western. Awesome work!
