Aly's sketch challenge --Isn't Life Sweet?

 I have seen Aly's Sunday Sketch Challenge before, but decided I just needed to play along with this one!

Aly is 11 years old and draws her own sketches and makes a creation with her sketch as well. You can find Aly's challenge HERE.

I dug out some fun pink Valentine papers, a meece stamp and went to town on her great sketch! Maybe you can find the time to go play in her challenge...they last for 2 weeks and this challenge she is offering the winner a free digi from Digital Delights.

Note: if you have never ordered from Ellen Hutson's online store, she always adds a little love to your order. She always adds a little baggie with a greeting and some pretty ribbon...this ribbon is lucious ...I used the red satin ribbon on this card today...mmm I love it!

I am off to go stamp and play with my cricut after spending the afternoon putting away most of my holiday decorations...whew!

Darling card, Sue. House Mouse are always just so cute. I had to visit Aly's blog and leave a comment for her. How wonderful that she is already creating sketches and sharing her talent. And how sweet of you to support her in her efforts!
