2S4Y Laura's Sketch 50 and DT Call

categories: ,
Is it bad that it's around 5 p.m. and I'm still in my pj's?  Since it's Saturday I guess I won't feel too bad but crafting is always more comfy in your pj's, don't you think?  Today was rainy and a bit chilly. In my book, that is the absolute perfect time to hang out in the craft room.  So anyway, I've had my fun for the day!  I guess it's time to start dinner (which can also be very creative in our house, too) but I wanted to share this with you first. 

I'm entering today's card in Laura's Sketch 50 and DT Call at 2 Sketch's 4 You.  I'm hopeful that they like my cards I've entered!  I miss being on a DT ... wish me luck!!!  Here's the sketch ...

... and here's my take on the sketch. 

I created the background by using little dots of color with my Copic markers and used the feather technique on the image itself.  I just think this little guy is so cute and wish I had one of him stuffed!
