A sketch challenge...

Welcome back! Did everyone survive the holidays? We had a great Christmas and Santa was soooo good to me. I guess I was a good girl this year :-) I got a Hello Kitty Sizzix Big Shot and tons of dies to go with it. I'm such a happy girl! I know, I know.....I'm the last person on the planet to get a Big Shot, but now I'm all set. I'm hoping that my new Big Shot and some new cartridges for my Cricut will help me get a jump start on my scrapbooking in the new year. I feel like my scrapbooking has taken a back seat to stamping over the last year, and I'm really excited about keeping up with it in 2010. I thought I might start using some sketches to get me started again. Do any of you know of any good sources for scrapbook sketches?? If you have any suggestions, I'd LOVE to hear from you!

Speaking of sketches, today is the 30th of the month and that means a new sketch challenge from the Hambo Challenge Blog! And guess what? This month I got to create the sketch! Here's what I came up with for you to play with...
So what do you think? I really hope you'll play along with us! The best part of the Hambo challenge is that you have an ENTIRE month to play and you can enter multiple times! Plus there's FREE STAMPS involved...need I say more?

Here's what I came up with for my sketch... I just adore this chubby little caterpillar! And can you believe that not a single Copic touched this card?! I decided to use the paper piecing technique on my plump little friend and his leaf.
I think he came out really cute.

To finish it off, I added some turquoise ribbon and tied a corduroy button to the bow.
I really hope my sketch inspires you to create something fabulous that you'll share with us! Be sure to leave a link on the challenge post for your chance to win.

I love this card MacKenzie! All the extra details like the gemstones and the corduroy button really make it great!

BTW, my daughter and I just saw a fat little caterpillar Webkinz that looked just like this guy! ( I almost bought it for myself just because of the resemblance! LOL
