Summertime and the livin' is easy...

It's that time again...yep, Sketch for You to Try time!! Jen has been on a circle kick lately, but this one was sooo fun! Of course I had to cut into my new Spring Branch Crate paper...isn't it YUMMY???

My wedding anniversary is this week, so I thought I'd make a card for Josh. He loves orange, which was perfect for this paper!

After glancing through my stamps, I decided on this image and sentiment from the Puppy Love Set from The Cats Pajamas. I love these stamps! After cutting my circle and watercoloring the image, I doodled a little border around the edges.

I really hope he likes this (he BETTER)! Make sure you guys check out Jen's blog for her sample and Joanne's sample, as well as Amy, Carole, and Susan's blogs for some more eye candy. Make sure you stay tuned next week, too...I have a little bit of news! Happy Saturday!

Stamps: Puppy Love (The Cats Pajamas)
Paper: Papertrey White, Chocolate Chip, Sweet Branch Collection (Crate Paper)
Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black, Marigold Morning, Pumpkin Pie
Accessories: Marvy Punches, Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, Vintage brads, Pop Dots, Paper Piercer & Mat Pack, Ice Stickles, Waterbrush, Reinkers

Love this, Shannan. The doodling around the rocket is such a cool touch. Love the colors, too.

Shannan, this is fabulous!! That rocket stamp has got to be the cutest darn thing!!! So...not only can you stamp amazingly...apparently you are an expert "doodler" as well!! I couldn't doodle like that if my life depended on it!
