Ahh Nuts!

Good Morning!

Madelynn is back with another Twinkling sketch for us all! With all the temporary twinkies we've had, it feels like she's been gone for a while. We missed you Maddie! :D

When I saw the sketch for this week I literally squealed out loud. I have had this super cute image from Whipper Snapper colored up and sitting on my desk for months! It's a pretty wide image and for the longest time, I didn't know what to do with it. (Had to have it of course!) Then when Madelynn's sketch graced my inbox, I had a lightbulb moment. So thank you Maddie for helping me get this guy onto a card!

I tweaked the sketch just a little and made my card symmetrical. The vertical panel just screamed at me to create a dove tail end to it. Since the sentiment was already on my image, I left it there. I probably would have put it in the bottom corner of the card had I not already had this image colored up and ready to go. I searched through my stash all morning looking for the perfect paper and I probably would not have thought to have used this Basic Grey paper if it wasn't for the fact that it fell out of the 6x6 pad when I was moving it! Dumb luck I tell ya!

If you'd like to play along, whip up a card, upload it to PCP or SCS and use the keyword MTTSC21 so the DT can find your card and leave you some love. I'm off to check out what the other girls have put together for this sketch - you should do the same! :D

Have a fantastic day!
