Inpirational Card Sketch #39

It is that time of the week again and Dawn from ICS has a fabulous sketch for you to work with as always. I hope you get a chance to play along with us on Sketch #39. This week our sponsor is Doodle Palace Digital Stamps. They have some super cute images to play with and even better they have a sale going on for 50% off Halloween images. So go check them out. This little Christmas Elf is a Doodle Palace image. He was sooo much fun to color up even in my state of having a cold and taking care of my 3 yo daughter who also has a cold. I wonder what goodie he has in that package...I suspect it is something stamping related. LOL. For this little guy I colored him up with copics and put some stickles on his fur trimmings and dingle balls on his shoes. All the designer paper is from the October Afternoon christmas collection. I really should have grabbed more of that paper up instead of 3 different packs because I'm really loving it. Please visit the rest of the fabulous ICS DT listed in my side bar for some more wonderful creations.

I want to take a minute to tell you all how sorry I am for not commenting or posting very much in the past 1.5 weeks. I've had a hectic work schedule and then The Man was on travel for 5 days so I was a single mom with a baby that has a cold...I was exhausted by the end of the day. It is times like these that you really have to give kudos to those single moms and dads out there. It is everyday for them. It also makes me appreciate The Man a whole lot more when he is home. I'm slowly started to get back into the groove of things so I will be making my rounds and hopefully posting 3-5 times a week. Also stay tuned for some Blog Candy. My 1 year Blogaversary is on October 28th. You would have thought I could have held out for a couple more days to make it fall on Halloween. I guess I was too excited to get it going. Anyway thank you for stopping by today and have a wonderful day.
