Check Out These Digi Stamp Characters

Happy Wednesday Everyone!! As always, I am thrilled to present to you the challenge for Sweet Sketch Wednesday. Our leader and sketch creator is Arlana Patten, and here is the sketch she is challenging us all with.

Isn't it great?!!! She is a woman after my own heart who loves the layers. Our sponsor this week is the fun and generous Heather of Digi Stamps Characters.

If you play along with us this week, you could win 3 free digis from Heather's Etsy shop!!! I love the sweet images she has to offer, and I know you will too. Here are two cards that I made using images Heather has to offer.

Here I used the Baby image. I had a pink bunny growing up that I took everywhere we went except for one terrible day, and I remember it still, coming home and finding the dog had gotten it off my bed and had it in pieces with stuffing strewn everywhere! I cried and cried. Mom picked up all the pieces of my bunny and put it all back together again. She was a life saver!!! I used copic markers on this guy as well as the new Basic Grey dsp Olivia from Clear Dollar Stamps. Love the flower, which I added some punched out leaves to it.

Isn't this mouse adorable?! I wanted to make the sketch into an A2 card, but then I goofed with the ribbon, it's not supposed to stretch across the entire card like I did!!! Chalk it up to late night stamping again!!! Anyway, I used my Tombow markers and blender pen on this. I thought I would changed it up a bit by not doing the zig zag stitching that I always seem to do. I've gotta thank Arlana for this inspiration! Thanks for stopping, but may I suggest heading over to the Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog so you can check out all the creations by the rest of the Design Team. You'll be so glad you did!

I really need to get a better sewing machine - mine only sews in a straight line (really!)and I love the way zig zag stitching looks. But your straight stitching looks wonderful!!! Loving it all!

I can't believe that your Mom could put that bunny all back together for you! Of course, that is what Mom's are for! Your cards are so adorable. I love that DP on your baby card. And your added corners are great. I always forget to use those! Beautiful flower too! Have a fabulous week!
