You're #1 in my book.

Good morning!  It's Tuesday, so that means we have another challenge from Tuesday Morning 
Sketches...actually we have not 1 sketch, but 4.  This week you may take your pick of an "oldie but goodie"!  Our sponsor for the week is The Stamping Boutique and here are the sketches you have to choose from.

I went with a back-to-school theme again this week.  My daughter started high school yesterday and my son starts middle school today...I can't believe my babies are that old!  Time marches forward so quickly....

I went with a Stampendous Calendar Chick and paired her with some Fancy Pants Designs papers (love them!).  The image is colored with pencils, I did a bit of layering and embellished with Bella Dots and some Baker's Twine.  Sentiment is from PTI.

Image: Stampendous
Sentiment: PTI "Way To Go, Kiddo!"Paper: PTI Stamper's Select, Aqua Mist, Dark Chocolate, and Pure Poppy, Fancy Pants Designs DP
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Sakura Black Gel Pen
Embellies: Bella Dots, PTI Dark Chocolate Baker's Twine
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Spellbinder's Nestabilities, The Paper Studio Sticky Doos

Please head on over to TMS to check out the rest of the DT's eye candy...I can't wait to see which sketch each of them chose!

I am also entering my card in the following challenges:

This is adorable! I love those pink cheeks on the bird, and your dp's are perfect for this. I'd never have thought to use light blue as the base card, but it is gorgeous!

Angela, your card is really cute. I like the papers you've chosen. Those pencils in the background are so cute. I also like your die cut center and the cute little chick with the books stacked on it's head. Very nice colored to coordinate with your papers. Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
