Thank you Friend

 Thank you Friend - Another great sketch challengeis going on at Seems a Little Sketchy! Just look at this beauty!

I am unsure of which pad my DP came from. Sorry, I am a little overwhelmed right now. My 2 year old grandson had major surgery last week and is still recovering. Plus with school out, I also have his older brother to intertain while Mom is at work.

My DP was distressed with my TH distressing tool.

My image is Helping Hand by our sponsor Sweet N Sassy Stamps. I fell in love with these sweet little guys. That bird just needed his mouse friend to help him get a drink.

I colored the image with copics and added Sktickles to the flower and around the edge after it was cut with a SP and inked with Worn Lipstick distress inks.

My flower that I added Stickles to, is from Judy's shop Pizzazz Aplenty. She has the best prices around. The leave is a SB that I shaped.

My bow was tied with my Bow Easy. The stick pin was made with a variety of beads, some of them came from Pizzazz Aplenty.

The sketch from Seems a Little Sketchy is a fun one and I hope that you will enter our challenge and make something with our sketch. Because Seems a Little Sketchy is relativly new, we are not getting a lot of entries yet, so you have a good chance of winning. Plus our challenges run for a fortnight, so it is a good one to use for those of us on DT and need to work a little ahead.
