Whoopi-ty-aye-oh...rockin' to and fro...back in the saddle again...

Happy Saturday, yall! I hope you're enjoying your weekend so far. I am hard at work on gifts in my stamp room, which is a total disaster, but I managed to find supplies to make my Sketch for You to Try card today. This is a great sketch, definitely one I'm keeping in my sketchbook for later.

I used some of my cowgirl paper stash from Creative Imaginations to get my card started. What a fun line! I remember seeing it last February at CHA and forgot about them till I saw them at The Crafty Scrapper last week. I got a whole stack!

This card measures 5 1/4" square, and most of the layers are sponged with Tea Dye and Walnut Stain Distress ink. The sentiment is from Deadbeat Designs that I picked up on my last trip to Stamp Salado.

While your surfing today, don't forget to check out this fab sketch and sample on Jen's blog (as well as an awesome card by our guest Lynn Put). Also make sure you check out my stamping friends Amy R, Carole, and Susan for more amazing projects using this sketch. If you upload to SCS, remember to use the keyword SFYTT so we can all see your eye candy.

SPEAKING of candy...I bet you all wanna know who won the Elzybells sheep set, huh? First of all, thank you for all the kind words of encouragement and congratulations. You rock my world!! The winner of the Sheep Celebrations 2 set is...
