Stan the Fishin' Man!

If you're looking for my Crafter's Cafe Challenge Blog post, please scroll down.
Have you ever made a change for what you thought was for the good, only to realize you might have made a mistake? Well we here at Sweet Sketch Wednesday have felt by doing right by our sponsors and asking for players to use those images has caused us to lose some very valuable followers. Realizing this, the bosses have decided to go back to the way it was and what made our challenge blog so popular, allowing players to use whatever image they wanted to use. Now here is the fun sketch that you get to play with! Isn't it great?!! I know you'll love it.

Every month the sweet Sally Ann from Digi Stamp Boutique sponsors us...thank you so much for your generosity Sally Ann!! Up for grabs to our big winner is 6 images of your choice from Digi Stamp Boutique.

And here's my card I get to share with you. I'm always drawn to the masculine images and Fishing Stan was a "had to have" for me!! I pulled out Basic Grey's Boxer paper pad for this one cause I simply loved the colors, very manly! I'm playing in a couple challenges with this card. First, the monthly challenge at the Digi Stamp Boutique Blog - use a DSB image. Secondly the Love to Create challenge - buttons and bows. Be sure and share the news of the changes at Sweet Sketch Wednesday, and know that we'd love for you to join us.

This is a terrific card Linda - you make the best manly cards! Fishin' Stan is so cute - I love the sponging you did on the oval panel - provides just enough background for the image. Great paper choices too. Have a fab week!
Hugs,
Sharon :)
