SSW 93 - DSB

I am oh-so-busy today: I have two posts! ABC Christmas Challange - F for Freebie can be found {here}.

Today's Ramblings: Here we are half way through the month - how about that!?!?! We have been having nice temperatures this week but the roads are swimming pools with all the snow melting. The other day I almost got stuck getting into the driveway - and I have snow tires! There is so much slush everywhere! Which reminds me, I have to go check the basement to make sure there is no flooding damage. But with that said, I am very thankful to live where I live. We don't see tsunamis, hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes and other natural disasters.

Today's DT Challenge:
A new Wednesday brings a new Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

Our Sponsor:
Yay for DigiStamp Boutique!!! I get so excited when it's Sally-Anne's monthly sponsor week. She has the cutest little digis and I know I will always find MANY to choose from.

Since I am mad at my Copic markers (LOL) I have been paper piecing since. Don't get me wrong, I love to paper piece!!! Seriously - it's the best way to match up your image!

I paper pieced this little guy, Oscar {found here}:

I thought Oscar would look perfect in polka dots!

Card Ingredients:
DigiStamp Boutique image; American Crafts and Recollections papers; Recollections cardstock; Copics; Rectangle Nestie; EK Success Swiss Cheese punch; Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly punch; Recollections gems.

Sweet Sketch 93:
(I think we will have lots of entries this week - this sketch is super-duper!)

We'd love to see you play along - be sure to check out the rest of my teamies fabbie creations as well as our sponsor (check out the freebie {here}):

Deanne, your card is Super Duper! I love Oscar in polka dots! I need to do some more paper piecing myself. Your butterfly punch is a fabulous embellishment and those little jewels next to your sentiment, on the butterflies and for his buttons are all so clever! Have a great day!
