DeNami Sketch Challenge #1

i think i know what you're thinking...

either it's--omgosh, why is she doing ANOTHER sketch challenge,


it's--yay! so glad she's showing me something pretty :D

i'm hoping the latter is the case.

so--here's the deal. DeNami Design is having a lot of fun over at their newly remade blog, and they're really amping up the fun... they're hosting a challenge twice a month on the 5th and the 20th, and all you have to do is follow the guidelines--either use the colors, sketch, theme, etc.

AND here's the best part (for me at least)... my good friend Paulina is on the DT, and she *MADE* this sketch! how COOL is that? :D

anyway, awesome sketch Paulina... here's my creation.

i was definitely in a summery mood... i've got the 'yum yum' stamp in light green ink in the background along with the small polka dot stamp paired with the watermelon slice image... all from DeNami.
the sketch is really sweet and simple--perfect for a newbie, or really just anyone. no excuses not to play, right? :D *ha, like we need excuses to make cards, right?*

so yeah, i added the lace from my LSS, the BG watermelon chippie (from the lemonade line) along with some b/w SEI paper and some bling along the bottom of the watermelon rind.

so what do you think? gonna play along? if you don't then AT LEAST go and look over at Paulina's work, or the others from the blog :D

have fun this week... i'm definitely going to be busy. i have 3 polo games to coach this week, so i'm sure i'll be really tired all the time. i can't wait for a friend of mine to have her baby--can't wait to meet him or her! :D

well, have an awesome week, thanks for stopping by!
