I'm a Guest Designer for Sketch Saturday!

Imagine my surprise Sunday when I was checking comments on my blog before running off to work at the bowling alley when I read a message that Coco, from Sketch Saturday, said she loved my card and asked if I'd be a Guest Designer for two weeks! It took a day for it to set in and I just couldn't believe it! Coco, I'm so thrilled, flattered, and honored and I hope I've not let you down. Make sure you stop by Sketch Saturday and look at all the talented stampers over there. They rock! I'd love to see what everyone does with this sketch. It was so fun to play with!

I love little furry friends and when I saw Young Catherine With Friends from Anki's Sweethearts for SCACD, I had to do her! I love the freshness of this line of stamps and all the details. Look at how stinkin sweet those little chicks are! Reminds me of my girls at Easter wanting chicks instead of a chocolate bunny. In our case, the chocolate bunny always won out!

I colored her with copics and used some Shimmerz on the chicks and my spica glitter pen on her flower and patches. The paper is from Chloe's Closet by Making Memories and the pearls are from Kaisercraft. I wanted to keep her look wholesome so I used buttons with Scrapper's floss. I think she's just adorable.

Card Ingredients: Young Catherine With Friends by Anki's Sweethearts for SCACD, Sunflower Shimmerz, Brown Scrapper's Floss, Kaisercraft Pearls, Atyou Spica Clear Glitter Pen, buttons, copics.
