A {Poochie} Sketch For You To Try

Well, I just can't get enough of these TCP (The Cat's Pajamas) stamps! I hope you don't mind, but I just had to play with them some more. So for today's Sketch For You To Try brought to you by our one and only--the famous Jen del Muro, I thought Poochie skating along here would fit the bill perfectly! The original sketch which you can see over on Jen's blog, called for the "embellishment" (otherwise known as a "make it whatever you want it to be star for the purposes of the sketch"), to be in the lower corner of the main panel, but it covered too much of the little skating trail, so I had to modify it a bit to fit the card and move that element to the top of the main panel, but still in a corner. So I'm waiting for the sketch police to come and get me. Oh wait--I won't be here. Haha!! This morning, Eric and the girls and I are headed to Lindsie's elementary school for donuts with Santa, and then a little later, Jen and I will be braving either the Keller H.S. Craft Show or better yet, the L.D. Bell Craft Show. Both of them are sure to be good shopping, but if you live around these parts, the L.D. Bell Show is THE CRAFT SHOW of the year! So I don't think the craft police will be willing to be shoved around by all those shopping crazed women looking for little ol' me! I'll just consider myself warned right now...'nuff said. So I ask you to be daring as well (guilty by association, right?) and play along in this sketch, using keyword SFYTT no matter where you upload it--it's ok to rock the boat a little, you may have to go into the witness protection plan if caught, but don't you need a little break from reality anyway? Oh no, I guess not--you're a stamper and you already have one!!

Be sure and check out my "band of sisters" handiwork on this sketch as well as Jen's new Guest Designer for December: Shannan, Amy R., Amy S., Carole and Lynn Put (The Queen's Scene)

I am going to try my darndest to be back later with a little something more!!
