Sketch Saturday - Sketch #288

The weekend means another great sketch from the Sketch Saturday blog.  I had so much fun combining two different digital images to create the scene for my card.  The little boy is a Sassy Cheryl Stamps' creation called That's HOT!  The winter fence is a digi from Make It Crafty - which, in addition to their digi stamps is a fabulous resource for tutorials.

Both of the images came together from a CASE of this card from a fellow card-making blogger, Chrissy.  I let her know that I would be creating a card based on her cutie - and found that she made another card this week with the fence and a Sassy Cheryl girl image.

7 Dots Studio is sponsoring Sketch Saturday this week.  I hope you will drop by the blog and see what our fabulous DT has for you and play along with Marzena's fun sketch.

  1. Oh My! It really is STUnning!
    Your colours are FABulous Cathy. LOve how you have got him standing behind the fence.
    A lovely embossing folder and your Snowflakes are soooo pretty.
    LOve, LOve, LOve it.

    1. Thanks for your love, Chrissy. I was trying to get him in front of the fence, but couldn't figure out how to do it! I truly appreciate your inspiration. I see we both have entered Sassy Cheryl this week using the fence and one of her characters! I was so glad to discover Make It Crafty too. The owner is a gem.
