Twinkling Tuesday: Deer Friend

Hey everyone!
It's once again Twinkling Tuesday and I have to say, I couldn't wait to show you this card.

My little guy Jack, 7, is once again this week's "Temporary Twinkie" and has stepped in as well, a Guest of sorts with our sketch this week. Yeah, Jacky! He LOVES to draw sketches and I have to share with you this cute story:
Jack was our "Temporary Twinkie" last month and you may remember THIS sketch he created. Well, the next day when it was time to look at everyone's creations, I told him, now tell me what you think of everyone's cards, etc, and explained to him the comment process. Although Madelynn doesn't get around to it EVERY week, I did explain to them the importance of acknowledging someone when they were playing the kids' sketches, etc.

Anyway, Jacky really enjoyed this process. Weeks passed, we took vaca, etc., and then a few days ago, out of the blue, Jack came up to me while working on my laptop and said "So, Mom...do I have any comments to leave today?" LOL!!! I thought this was SO, so cute I couldn't wait to share with you...and hence, another TT sketch was born!!! Thanks Jacky for this awesome sketch!

I couldn't WAIT to ink up my Forest Friends set from The Greeting Farm! I absolutely LOVE this little deer and fell in love with him the minute I saw this stamp set when it was released last month. His sweet and innocent little face just "had me at hello!"

So, you want to play along this week? We'd love to have you! Just create card using the above sketch and be sure to leave a comment on the Twinkling Tuesday blog so that the whole team can stop by and see what you've made! If you prefer to upload to SCS or PCP, just use keyword MTTSC19 so we can see all the beautiful creations in one spot! Don't forget to head over to the TT blog today to see my "Deer" friend Bonnie's awesome take on this week's sketch...she is our featured stamper this week, and a HUGE Congrats to her as we just found out she is a Dirty Girl...yep, that's right! Our very own Bonnie is a part of the elite SCS "Dirty Dozen" design team. CONGRATS BONNIE!!! I have had the pleasure of knowing Bonnie not only on the Twinkle Team but also as fellow DT members of the Little Paper Shop!
Speaking of which, I should tell you that TODAY is the APRIL RELEASE DAY over at The Little Paper Shop! There are THREE BRAND NEW STAMP SETS being released today and let me just say that they are AMAZING! Be sure to check out the website and LPS Blog for all the fun information! See you over there!

Well, that's all for today! See you back here tomorrow and have a wonderful Twinkling Tuesday!

So, so cute! Yep, that's how I feel about that little deer too (well, that whole set really!) Just too adorable! And it always looks even better when put with mushroom paper! :-) Traci

I agree with you about the little deer, that set is adorable, and is on my "wish list" Oh believe me, I will get it sooner or later! =)
But regardless, I stopped by to let you know that I have something on my blog for you! You are SOOOO deserving Jess... =)
Big Hugs

I had a lot of fun with Jacky's sketch this week and you did a wonderful job on yours too!! I have colored up that deer several times, but I have never made a card with it!!

I love how you seperated the sentiment out!!

Great Job Jess!!!
