A sketch with some SPARKLE... in, Sparkle Creations!

{{{PLEASE Scroll Down for my Ribbon Carousel post featuring the new BANTASTIC set by The Greeting Farm!}}}

Hey, everyone!  Happy Tuesday and I hope you've enjoyed your holiday weekend.  DH has been away working all weekend, so we spent the days relaxing, staying in our PJ's, crafting, reading, watching movies, baking chocolate chip cookies and staying out of the rain.  It's been raining for 2 days straight and that's OK- we really needed it!

I also spent some time coloring for a VERY exciting announcement sweet friend Sparkle Smith and her fabulous DT coordinator Stephanie Kraft have asked me to join the Sparkle Creations crew as September guest!  I am very excited and honored to be working amongst such talent.  Sparks and I go back a few in the crafting world and I adore her and her cute stamp line!  (she's also my CHA 'homie', as I'm sure you've seen on Facebook or around blog land, LOL...and makes a great taxi partner as well!  Right, Sparks? )

Speaking of rain...the temps have cooled a bit and it's starting to remind me of Fall whether I like it or not, LOL!    Today's challenge is to create with THIS sketch by DT member (and my Farmer friend!), Kim Yu:

Here is my card and take on the sketch (albeit a bit 'tweaked' :) using the adorable Broomstick Lucy stamp:

I have to say that Sparkle Creations stamps are awesome in quality.  REALLY awesome.  They come untrimmed red rubber and also can be mounted easily on cling foam, also available in the Sparkle Creations store!

I'll leave you with some fantastic inspiration featuring this week's challenge:

I hope you'll play along in the sketch challenge and you can visit THIS page for all the info and details of how to enter and qualify for the weekly prize drawing!  I'll be back in a short while with a preview of the September releases at SCRS, so thanks as always for staying tuned and thanks for the warm welcome, as well!
