My Challenge and Sketch Blog

Creatively Artsy is my CTMH blog and this is my FUN Blog.
Here is where I can use any products and just do my own thing. I started out with just one sketch challenge and now I'm hooked. I wish there were more hours in the day.

Sweet 'n Sassy Birthday Blog Hop

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter. I spent a fantastic day with my kids and grandkids. The weather couldn't have been more perfect. 75° and SUNNY!!!

Today is Korin's Birthday. She is the owner and one of the illustrators of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps so we are celebrating in style with a Blog Hop.  Prizes Galore starting right here.

You can hop along in  any order. The DT list is at the end of this post. But, make sure you stop at each one and leave a comment for a chance at some free Digi Stamps.


My card today was inspired Friday Sketcher's Sketch Challenge #96.

The image is April Daisies, illustrated by the ever so talented Leah Cornelius.  They were actually printed out three times, colored and cut out twice and layered with foam take for a 3D look.
How would you like a chance at getting this fabulous image FREE. Just leave me a comment and you might be the lucky winner.  A winner will be chose tomorrow.

The designer papers are from the Veranda Collection from Close to my Heart.

The card is 5.75 x 5/75 in size. The hand stitching was done with matching embroidery floss.
