Sketch Saturday - Sketch # 280

It's been a crazy week without much spare time, so I am double-dipping two DT Challenges with my card. One is Sketch Saturday's weekly sketch.  It's a Simon Says Stamp sponsor week at Sketch Saturday. That means $25 goes to the lucky winner!  Good luck to everyone!

The other DT Challenge is for an anything goes challenge at Color Me Creative (CMC). Bugaboo Stamps is the sponsor and generously provided images for the DT.  I wanted to stretch myself with coloring, so I have fun looking through their site for an image.  Bugaboo has a line of witty old fogeys digis. This one is called Stella and Gus - Deck of Cards. The inside says:  In the beginning, all you need is two hearts and a diamond. By the end, you wish you had a club and a spade. I got a chuckle reading that one - after 37 years of marriage, I've had those moments!  I'm sure my husband has too!  I wonder who takes the most grief, Gus or Stella?!?

Hope to have the chance to visit your blog on my travels this week.  I'm looking forward to your creativity!
