I had so much fun doing this image for the Stars and Stamps Sketch Challenge this week! This image I learned about from my friend Carol at Our Little Inspirations. She is very creative and one of my favorite card artists! The digi was offered as a freebie from Sliejke Digi Stamps where you will find many terrific digis all available for free as the artist enjoys sharing her "God-given talents" as she describes it. There is so much to see both on Carol's and Sliejke's website!

The Sketch:

My Card:
Isn't this digi image just absolutely adorable? I usually go for the florals, but since the day I saw the card that Carol created, I have wanted to make a card using "Puppy Mail"! I colored the image with Copics and put a border of Everything with Wine followed by a Sweet Corn embossed strip (both by Gina K). The DP is from DCWV's Far East Stack. The half pearls are from my stash.

I didn't post last week as I was on jury duty - a very long and interesting week. As well, having to drive off the mountain for an hour one way into the 105 degree heat was the worst torture possible for me. But I lived through it and my service is completed, so I am happy and am looking forward to a relaxing and cooler week coming up!

I hope and pray that you, too, will have a wonderful week. Blessings,


  1. Louise, you're making me blush with all these compliments! {{{Big Hugs}}}
    I just adore this little image and what you've done with it!! Adding the wine color is perfect and someone is going to love receiving this sweet card!!! I hope you left a link for the artist on her blog? She loves to see what everyone does with her images. She's just the sweetest person to share them with everyone and you're so kind to mention me in such a nice way too!! I hope you're a little cooler today - we're back in the hot soup back in PA again too! But fall's comin'!!! Have a great week, and huge thanks again :)
