A {Yo Quiero Taco Bell} Sketch For You To Try

Hola!! Happy Saturday! The weekend is finally here after a busy week on Spring Break. Remember how much stamping I was going to get done and all those fun trips to Hobby Lobby I had planned? Well, no stamping, NADA...none got done! ONE trip to Hobby Lobby and they didn't even have what I wanted. So just to see if I still knew how to stamp and color, I conjoured this up for Jen's Sketch For You To Try! I did manage to go on a fun excursion to Imprints (a local 30 miles away stamp store) with my mom on Thursday and I could not resist this cute little $2 clear set from Inkadinkado. It reminds me of the chihuahua (pronounced chi-who-ah-who-ah if you know me) from the old Taco Bell commercials! You can't see it real good in this picture (again, click on it for a more personal view), but it says "Muchas Gracias" on the brown strip and the brown circle and strip are pierced along the edges. I had to turn the sketch horizontally to give my cacti a little breathing room which allowed me to use the muy fabuloso ball fringe I've had for a while now. Sorry, I couldn't resist it for this "theme"!!! So as Randy on AI says, 'Yo, check it out, dog!', go check out the sketch and get more inspiration from Jen's guest designer, Joanne Basile and then corre (run) on over to Amy's, Carole's and Shannan's blogs for more inspiration. (Upload yours to SCS using keyword SFYTT and we can "Yo, dog check it out" as well!)
Now, how many of you want some tacos for lunch today? Yo quiero Taco Bell!! (I want Taco Bell!)

TIP: When centering three of anything, start by finding the center and adhering the middle one first. That will allow you to "eyeball" the left and the right panels and make them evenly spaced.

Stamps: Muchas Gracias (Inkadinkado)
Ink: Palette Noir
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Summer Sun, DP by Paper Studio
Other: CM Square Punch, CM Circle Cutter, Paper Piercer/Mat pack, Prisma/Copic Markers, Brads, Ball Fringe, Dimensionals
