A New March Sketch For You to Try

Well, it's the first Saturday of the month and that can only mean that it's time for Jen's newest Sketch For You to Try. It's a fun sketch this month and we hope ya'll get a chance to play along. Our sponsor this time is Amber Ink who always has some way cute images to play with. I got this little owl called Owl be Your Friend from the Wild Animals With Heart Collection along with this sweet sentiment and couldn't resist getting another set I'll be playing with a little later in the month--squeal!

Here's a bit about this (mostly digital) stamp company in their own words:
AmberInk was started by a mother and daughter team. Amber lives in the East, Pam lives in the West. Amber is an Emmy nominated children's animator and illustrator, who creates from her Brooklyn, New York studio. Although they do carry some clear stamps, the company runs by the premise that their customers are more brilliant than patient. If you've been a diehard clear or rubberstamper, they can even help you with the transition to digital. And don't worry about asking a silly question, because as a retired public high school teacher, Pam has already seen it all. Check out the ever-increasing tutorial links, which you can find on the homepage. Hailing from the Hawaiian Islands, the Aloha Spirit is alive and well at

And finally here's a look at the sketch. If you're feeling lucky, Amber Ink is giving away a $15 Gift Certificate to a randomly drawn participant of this month's sketch if you use an Amber Ink image on your card. FUN!

Along with a new sketch, we have a new guest designer in the house, Shelley Dupont. Yay! Check out Jen's blog for her lovely creation AND a reminder on how YOU can win the YEAR'S END GRAND PRIZE!

SUSIE Q-TIP: Guess what? Your embossing folders create a two-sided "embossment" (I made that word up--could be when you are crafting and actually emboss cardstock, or it could be when you get a promotion to be a boss.). Use the debossed side for a change.
