With love

Thanks so much for all the sweet comments from the last few posts! They mean so much to me. :)

For this weeks sketch challenge over at Simple Scrapping Crafts - it's such a fun sketch, and we have a great prize up for grabs, so I hope you'll play along. :)

How about this little guy (I'm assuming he's a guy ;))? Isn't he sweet? He's a digi stamp from Tiffany Doodles, our wonderful sponsor this month.

A fun button/hemp cord treatment....

Changing the sentiment up with two different ink colors - you don't know how proud I feel of this little tag ;)

That's it for me today - have a great one!
