Overflowing with Sweet Joy!

God has been so good to me lately and I am so thankful for that!! I had a wonderful weekend with a new sweet puppy, spending time with my sweet family friends and hearing some other really "SWEET" news!!

The other day I decided to apply to be on the DT of a new sketch blog called Sweet Sketch Wednesday. My cyber friend and fellow lover of challenges and Unity stamps, Stephanie Muzzulin, told me about this site and Arlana's call for DT members. So I went for it and I got it!!! I am so happy about this sweet news!!

You all know how much I love challenges of all kinds to get my inspiration going, but I especially love sketch challenges! What is neat about these challenges is that I can use any kind of stamp I want to when producing cards for these sketches.

Arlana is looking for many more designers to work with her sketches, so if you would like to apply, just visit her blog for the details! I have seen some of her upcoming sketches and you won't be disappointed. If you don't want to be on the DT, be sure to visit the blog weekly, become a Follower and you will get lots of great sketches to work with for your card creations!

Here is the sweet card that I created to apply for the Sweet Sketch Wednesday DT using sketch #1...

The digistamp is one of the adorably sweet stamps from the new site called Whimsie Doodles. Melyssa created this one that is called Little Pumpkin Doodle Bear. I know it isn't the fall, but I loved the image and found some wonderful older papers in my stash made by 7 Gypsies that I thought gave the image a softer, less stark feel. I colored it with my Prismacolor pencils and added some felt flowers, machine stitching and my Nesties and Cuttlebug embossing plates to complete the card.

I am going to keep it short and sweet today as I have some cards to work on and a puppy to tend to!

Have a great day and may your bucket overflow with sweet joys too!!
