This is my first time here. Your great sketch caught my eye and I wanted to participate. I'm not sure how to link my card here so if it doesn't work, and you'd like to visit, you can click on my pic :) Thanks for the great challenge!

Kathy said...

Ooops, sorry Penny. I just read that you would like us to use your stamps. I was so inspired by the sketch and the DT's beautiful cards that I missed that detail. I don't own any of these, nor do I believe have I ever seen them where I'm from. They're all very cute!
