DeNami Sketch Challenge #13

Before I get to todays post I have something I'd like to talk to ya'll about. DeNami is currently holding a Facebook contest looking for their biggest fan. They asked for everyone to send in their entries by a certain date and I did along with 3 other gals. Now comes the voting part, it's done by fellow DeNami fans, YOU get to decide the winner! Ya'll already know how much of my life I devote to DeNami, this blog, Facebook page, items in my home, etc.. It can't be denied that I'm a HUGE fan! I would greatly appreciate you showing your support for what I do pretty much on a daily basis by voting for me. I not only run this blog to show my love and support for DeNami, I also do it for all of you. I take great joy in being able to bring you a little fun and hopefully a lot of inspiration.

 All you have to do to cast your vote is follow the link to the DeNami Facebook post and click on my photo submission then click the "like" button by 8/31/2012, that's all it takes. Thanks everyone...You gals are awesome!

Now then, on with our regularly scheduled post, lol! I thought I'd try my hand at DeNami's current challenge...


Ohh my goodness, I'm gonna be up front and tell ya'll that this little sketch kicked my tushie! I've never met a sketch that didn't like me, but this little cutie certainly did not! I made several cards and they all looked the same and kinda, well...blah. I've finally came up with a little creation that made me smile. I hope it makes you smile too!
Did you notice the chickies hands?? I stamped him without hands, masked him off and made a "grassy" background using a couple different green inks. After I added the fence I placed his little hands back on so that it looks like he's holding onto it. I just love this little guy! :)  Also, since I don't own a speech bubble *gasp* I used the cloud stamp and a hole punch to make my own. To make the fence and grass, I free hand cut the angle at the bottom and I stamped the fence at the edge of the panel and cut parts of it out. Then tore strips of green cardstock, randomly stamped the mini grass image and layered them on top of the bottom portion of the panel. Now that I'm thinking about it, I should have used chocolate or kraft cardstock for that panel and eliminated all the coloring...DUH! But, like I mentioned before, this sketch was the death of me and I feel very luck to have accomplished what I did, lol! This card also fits the current challenge right here on the Addict blog...buttons. Have you entered yet????
That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by and please don't forget to vote (for me hopefully, lol!) for who you think DeNami's biggest fan is!
