Sketch Saturday #212

I am so pleased to have become a "Saturday Girl" at
This is my first week on their lovely and talented DT.  Yippee!
We have a great sketch this week and are lucky enough to be sponsored by Stamp Fairy who are offering one lucky winner a $10 gift certificate to spend in store. Thank you Gerda.
I used Lenny with Daisy from the Thank You set.  Isn't he a cutie?  You can find him here.
I coloured Lenny with Copics, added Glossy Accent to his nose and decoupaged his feet and his daisy for a little extra dimension.  My papers are DCWV Spring Fling and the sentiment is from a Bugaboo set.  I also used a Martha Stewart lace punch and added some Marianne Die cut skeleton leaves and Marvy daisy punchings before finishing off with some ribbons and buttons from my stash.  This post is scheduled because I will be in Spain with 11 other women for the weekend but I hope to enter my card into the last challenge at Truly Scrumptious who want to see "flower power".
I can't tell you how delighted I am to have been chosen to be a member of the great DT at Sketch Saturday.  Find lots of inspiration from our fabulous team members and come and play along with us.

Congratulations on the DT!

Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog.

You asked about how I printed my Wordle clouds at a specific size. I saved them as a PDF (you can download PDFCreator for free if you have Windows, or Macs have the option built in when you print) and then pasted the PDF as an image into a landscape Word document set with 2 columns. I rotated it slightly, then printed it, folded it and trimmed it to make the insert. Cool eh? Please feel free to come back to me if you need any extra info?

Have a great weekend!
