a farewell to summer...


Happy Sunday!

Can you believe next Saturday will be September?  

Unbelievable how quickly summer has flown by!

I'm here to remind you about The Craft's Meow August Sketch Challenge:


Here's my farewell to summer card:


I couldn't help but ink up the

{stamp illustrator Mabelle R-O}


I love using that sweet beachy keen girl....I paper pieced and copic'd her up.  

The patterned paper is Basic Grey's Paper Cottage and of course I used, Caribbean from The Twinery.  I also used my latest die that I picked up from Impress, the Tall Canning Jar by Memory Box!

Come play with us over at The Craft's Meow!

You may enter as often as you like, but we must be able to see the sketch in there somewhere. You are free to flip it or turn it as you like!

However, if you are the winner and you have used TCM stamps on your entry, you will not only receive a TCM stamp set of choice as your prize, but also a coupon for 15% off one additional stamp set of choice which can be used one time within 30 days!!! 

You have until August 31st @ 9:00 pm pacific to link up!
