One Sweet Sketch...

...from my sweet son, Jack!


Greetings, everyone!
It's just another Whimsical Wednesday here and time for another challenge that we lovingly refer to as "The Diedrich Dare!"   I'm super excited about this week's sketch that Jack drew for our Daredevils.  It's a GREAT sketch w/ tons of possibilities and I'm really excited about my card today, too because I got to use a new "just for fun" stamp!

I stamped a few of these ADORABLE Swiss Pixies from my friend Pam while we had our fun girls weekend with Mercy and Jessie.  Gotta loooove raiding the stash of others, right?  Haha.   I just think this little NORA Swiss Pixie is adorable beyond words!  And she was SO fun to color!

Paired with my favorite Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly paper and some fun half-pearls from Kaiser, I think this card came out just the way I wanted it too.  Always nice when that happens, LOL!  The sentiment is from Verve stamps.  Their Holiday release is TOO gorgeous this year!

All in all, this was just a SUPER fun card for me to make and I hope you'll stop by the rest of our awesomely talented DAREDEVILS to see what they came up with this week:
Don't forget to stop by the DARE blog because there is a PRIZE being given away for this week's challenge!  That's right!  ONE lucky winner will take home something FABULOUS sponsored by Club Anya...so go...check it out!!!!!

Sadly, we say goodbye to our friend Lisa Hjulberg this week as it will be her last week as a Daredevil.  Thanks for all your contributions, Lisa and we'll definitely be watching your beautiful blog!

That's about it for me today, guys.  I am SUPER excited as my brother is here from L.A. and I haven't seen him in years!  It's his first trip to TN to see my new house and my parents' new house and we are thrilled to be spending Thanksgiving with him.  The kids and I are SUPER stoked to see him as is DH...they can sit and talk cars forever, LOL.

So, I'll see you back here on Friday for a SUPER AWESOME SURPRISE I've been bursting to show you!   See you then!
