Bear and Turtle

Before I begin, please remember to check out Sonia's Blog Candy (15 images!).  Click in the link/badge at the right side bar, or go here for your chance to win.

I decided to color up an SK Digis for my prelude to the DT gig that started today (see my previous post).   The sketch is from Tuesday Morning Sketches, one of my favorite challenge and "go-to sketch reference" sites.



Ingredients:

Digi:  SK Digis - Teddy Bear with Turtle
Papers:  Jessica Sprague Blossom Mega Digital Pack printed on Staples #110; Hammermill
Ribbon, button and glitter glue from stash

(I should mention that this paper pack came from this mega-enormous pack at jessicasprague.com that was on sale for $1 on Wednesday.   My card really doesn't show the details in this pack.  There were 24 papers and a huge selection of printable embellishments that come in flat and embossed versions.   It's now $10.99 (and still an incredible deal) but check in every Wednesday to see what other amazing goodies she has to offer.  I highly recommend following Samantha Walker, who keeps you up to date on Jessica's store and she gives great advice and tutorials and is also a very incredible and popular Silhouette Store designer so you're probably familiar with her designs.  <deep breath>)
