Fussy & Fancy Friday Challenge

Good morning all!  Welcome to Friday {that always makes me smile!!}.  I don't know about YOUR week, but mine has been crazy!!  So crazy that I wasn't able to complete both my DT Friday commitments.  Unfortunately, I don't have a Stamp Something challenge (Stitch Somethings) card to share this week, but please go check out the other fab DT cards.  They're just wonderful!

Now on to the challenge I was able to complete.  This week, the Fussy & Fancy challenge is a sketch!  If you're like me you LOVE sketch challenges and this is a great one created by our very own Mindy.

And here's my sample...

I just had a ton of fun working up this challenge.  Our sponsor for this week is InStyle Stamps.  If you're not familiar with them, they have lots of fun, whimsical and some retro stamps.  They were kind enough to share a couple images with some of the DT and I chose to use Ariel.  Isn't she great!  I'd mentioned to our DT coordinator that I wasn't really a mermaid kind of gal, but I opted for her anyway.  She totally changed my mind!  She was great fun to work with and now I am a mermaid kind of gal!!

I hope you'll get to go check out all the other DT ladies' blogs as they all made some wonderful cards.  Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope you have a wonderful Friday as I know I will!!  Take care my friends!!
