Sketch at Creative Inspirations and mystery candy at crafty sentiments plus new releases

Good morning all! How are you? I hope you are well and that you had another glorious day yesterday like we did - it was supposed to break in the evening but as I write this Tues night at 8.30pm we still have sunshine!!! Fingers crossed they got it wrong.

This morning its time for a new challenge over at Creative Inspirations (cinspirations). The challenge this week is a sketch. We're sponsored by the stamp Fairy and the prize will be from them.

You can flip / rotate the Sketch but please make sure all the elements are still used.

This week's prize is from STAMP FAIRY which is a $10 GIFT CERTIFICATE!

Here's what I did with the Stamp Fairy image that I chose to use:

She's a real sweetie pie - The dog reminds me of the dog on Ginny's blog - Macy! So cute. I've used some K and Co and bazil basics papers and coloured the image with promarkers. The flowers are WOC. The card is 8x8 centura pearl card from crafters companion ( I cut their 16 x 16 inch square sheets in half).
I'd like to enter this fesh summery card into the following challenges:
CYPCcraftyourpassionchallenges: Floral delights
Cardmaniacardmaniachallenges: Flower power
Kaboodle Doodleskaboodledoodles: For the ladies
LEJlejdesignschallengeblog: Summer's coming
Papertake weeklypapertakeweekly: Anything goes
Passion for promarkerspromarkerchallenge: Birthdays

Now on another note the new releases start previewing at 9am today on the craftysentimentsinspirations blog. They'll be there over the next three days finishing with a blog hop on Friday. There's also some mystery candy to be had when the inspiration blog reaches 230 followers. So pop over there and grab the followers badge and add it to your blog - you never know - it could be you that gets lucky!!!!

 And check out those new releases - I'll be back tomorrow to showcase one of them - they are fabulous!

Thanks for dropping by and hope to see you again soon!
