Good Tuesday morning! I'm so glad to have a new sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches to get me back into the swing of things; I've been on vacation and didn't get all the stamping done that I had planned to. Part of the time the family took a geocaching trip to Wisconsin; the other part was spent relaxing. I went back to work on Monday, so vacation is officially over.

Back to today's card.... Dawn drew the sketch this week, and I think it's a really great one; it really lets your image shine! Our sponsor this week is By LORI Designs and Lori gave me this adorable image to work with. Isn't she just a doll with her slice of watermelon? The little gal is colored with pencils and I added some glitter to the bows in her hair and the dots on her dress and shoes. I accented her eyes and the watermelon seeds with a black gel pen. The image panel is popped up to give it a bit of extra oomph!

Thanks for stopping by today; have a great day!
