We also have a great sponsor for this sketch. Sew Many Cards is a digital stamp store.
Here is a little bit more from the owner of Sew Many Cards:
My name is Angela and I own Sew Many Cards. I have a husband, an almost 10year old daughter, a two year old son, and a dog/puppy: Hershey. The images of Sew Many Cards came from a dream that my husband had of a group of animals that were """ SEWN Together" with patches and stitching, hence the name, which he also came up with. You will find that every image in the Sew Many Cards collection has patches and stitching, even the ones that are not animals. I love to draw and almost every image is either an inspiration from my family or a request from my great customers and design team, so please ask if you need something specific or would like to request something be made. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For my card I used the cute image of Duncan with Owen. The images just says to me “I love you this much” and I was thinking about Father’s Day .
I colored Duncan and Owen with my Copic Markers and cut them out using my deckle rectangle nestie. The card base is SU More Mustard and the patterned paper is from Making Memories – Just Chilling 6X6 pack. The sentiment I created and printed. I applied Old Paper-Ranger Distressed Ink around all edges.
So now it is your turn to create a card or creation using Leigh Ann’s sketch # 19 and then link it up and lets us see your creation and good luck with winning the great images from Sew Many Cards.
For inspiration go on over and check out the great creations some of the DT made for you this time.

Our red, white, and blue flag with that lonely figure looking off in the distance with thoughts of that loved one who is away from her. What a sacrifice both are making for me and for you.
I will be sending this card to one person who comments on my blog during the blog hop. If you would like to have this card please let me know when you comment and I will draw a winner at the end of blog hop and will mail it to you.

This card I made using an stamp from Digi Doodle Shop. I loved it for a Father’s Day card and when my grandson asked me to make him one to give to his dad I knew this was the image.
Another card for Father’s Day or male birthday … there is no sentiment so can be used for anything.
this is a digi stamp from Mo’s Digital Pencil ……
and another card from Mo’s Digital Pencil that I am sending to my brother ….. just because I want to say I love you !!!!!
and one more card that is a male birthday card…. A friend of mine at my Tuesday night group had extra making for this card and she shared with me so here is the free card.

That is what the Digi Doodle Shop’s Best challenge is for this week. A creation with glitter or sparkle or both.
Our design team has really out done themselves this week and we can’t wait to see what all you paper crafters have for us this week.
We had a wonderful participation last week of out ribbon challenge and look forward to seeing everyone creations again this week. I want to say thank you to each and everyone of your wonderful ladies for taking the time to join our challenges. All of your creations are such an inspiration to us all.
This week I tarried from my normal style and created a card with only 2 layers and lots of glitter. When I asked for a suggestion as to what to do this week, Judy, the owner and one of the creators of the wonderful stamps in Digi Doodle Shop, suggested doing something like this.
The firecracker has one of the doodle blooms shooting out of it. I thought was a fabulous idea. I printed and then colored the stamp and cut it out. I stamped with a red rubber stamp the firecracker and colored with Copic Markers and also use some of the Spica Markers on the firecracker and the flowers. My glitter part comes from the firework swirls and the stars. I used my SU 2 way glue and painted the SU stamps with the glue and then stamped on the SU cardstock. I covered the glue with Diamond Dust Glitter and then shook off excess. I was surprised at how it worked so well. I have never had good results with glitter and just don’t use it, so this is a new technique for me. I then added some white gel pen highlighting marks around the stars and in parts of the swirls. Tied a bow with some very thin red,white, and blur ribbon I had in my ribbon collection.
The Doodle Bloom collection is free this month at Digi Doodle Shop with a $5.00 purchase. And all Mother’s day and floral stamps are 25% of all month. So go and stock up on all your favorite Digi Doodle Shop stamps and get these 2 free stamps.
We waiting for you at the Digi Doodle Shop’s Best challenge blog so hop on over there and use the new “link “ program to show us your glittery and sparkling creations.

This set is $15 and 100% of the proceeds will go the the Nashville Red Cross to help the TN flood victims. My area of Tennessee was not hit hard like the Nashville area and I feel so fortunate.

2 Peas In A Bucket had their Hero Arts Stamps on sale and I took the opportunity to get some that I had been looking at. I made this card right away when I opened up my package. The stamp is Garden Silhouette. And the sentiment is from the Poly Clear set Life Is Not Perfect.
I stamped the stamp in SU Real Red on a page from an old hymnal and then tore it out. I made the flower by cutting out 3 flower and distressed them with the Real Red ink and Antique Linen. Red buttons from my button collection. I tied the button with twine. The pp is from Close to My Heart but have no idea what the name is . The card base is PTI Kraft Cardstock.
It is graduation time in Tennessee. A good friend of mine has 2 relatives graduating from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. She asked me to make her 2 cards for them. SoI made them and am hoping they like them . The stamp set is retired SU. And the card stock is also SU. The orange is Only Orange. I printed the back ground text paper.
