Sending sunshine

Howdy folks... here's hoping that blogger doesn't go all cock-eyed on us again today, LOL!

So it's time for a new challenge over at ATS and this week we've got a sketch to inspire your creativity! For my take on it I decided to use Ocean Wavedancer and her pal Echo. I went a whole lot brighter in her coloring this time around because I had these paper scraps that I have been wanting to use up ever since summer hit. I think the fun Doodlebug colors and patterns work really well to create a bright sunshiny happiness to the card. :)

Wanna give it a go? Who wouldn't, what with the fab prizes being offered! Just remember that in order to be eligible to win, your card must include a stamp that is sold in the All That Scraps store. Whether it is any of our wonderful in house designs or from the various other stamp companies that ATS carries, the choice is yours. Then be sure to link up your creation with Mr Linky by next Tuesday at 10pm est and only one entry per person please!

Ok, time for me to scoot... the temps are on the rise here so I'm hoping I don't melt before I can hit the lake and swim like miss Ocean, LOL! ;)
