Wags 'n Whiskers Sketch challenge

I've been dying to ink up Wags 'n Whiskers stamps and took a look at their Sketch challenge (ending today!) and decided to play. I've OD'ed a bit on pastels with Spring and Easter and all so I wanted to do something bold and primary. The papers are 2 sides of the same Scenic Route paper, and the reverse side of a Cosmo Cricket Early Bird which looked pretty boyish. The adorable stamp is Hey Grandma from the Wee Ones release which is one of the cutest ever(I guess I always say that, but the stamps are ADORABLE)! It's available from Stamp and Create and at the moment it's even ON SALE! The border punch is ANOTHER EKSuccess that I hadn't used yet and digging through my embellie stash I came across this hand paper clip which seemed perfect with the stamp. I added an Alpha Bead sentiment and popped the image. I really enjoyed working with Tina's fabulous sketch. If you own any Wags'nWhiskers Stamps you have until tonight to play along. Loads of fun and you may just win one of their fabulous stamps!
I take my photos on top of my dryer in the laundry room with a table cloth over the appliances. I had to share the space with Jezebel this morning but I guess she approved.


  1. hi donna, what a fabulous colorful card...hugs

  2. That stamp is so cute and I love how you put it all together and the colors you used. Hey Girl, congratulations on making the Spotlight in the Chirp this week. I opened my email and there I saw your beautiful face!

  3. We must be telepathic... that's the same stamp I was telling you about! Love the primary colors and that hand clip waving "hi"! That picture of Jezzie is adorable!

  4. Hi Donna,
    This is a fabulous card. The colours are certainly bold but they are needed for this image. Great work.
