~Runnin' A Lil Behind..Stitchy Stamps & More Inspiration~

This week at Sew Many Challenges we have an awesome sponsor for our "Christmas In August" challenge...Stitchy Bear Stamps!! Stitch is an awesome artist and lady, so you need to hurry over and check out all her images and the fun stuff they have going on at their challenge blog, One Stitch At A Time, as well!! 
Stitch was generous as always and allowed our sponsor team to pick out an image to work with, and I chose "Lil Behind". She is absolutely adorable...the image that is...well Stitch is too, but we're on the image now!!..lol Anyways, as soon as I seen her, I knew exactly what I was going to use her for, my belated Birthday card for my Father-In-Law! Isn't sad when you know a month ahead that you're going to need a belated card lol And I was right! Maybe I can tell him I was distracted by mine coming up on Sunday That I forgot about his?? lol Hopefully when he gets it, he puts the sentiment inside the card with the image..we'll see...lol 

I love checking out challenge entries because you never know what talents you'll come across, and that's exactly what happened today! We had an entry over at Sew Many Challenges and when I went to the blog, I discovered a blog of inspiration through Sketches! Arianne Addicks has some awesome sketches that you can use for inspiration on her blog, and thats exactly what I did with my card. You need to really check out her blog. Not only are her sketches great but her work is amazing!! 
So what are you waiting for?? Grab ya some images at Sew Many Cards and Stitchy Bear Stamps and start creating!! We've got two great challenges for you to join in and have fun with!!

I think anyone would forgive you for sending a belated card if it looked like this! It is full of humour, and beautifully coloured. Thank you for joining us at DU2DS this week!
