Sketch Challenge, House Mouse & Little Indy!

It's my turn this week to host the sketch challenge over at Card Swaps on the CardMaker site. Above is the card I made using my sketch. The image is a House Mouse image by Stampabilities. Designer paper is by Basic Grey and the cardstock is Bazzill and Die Cuts With A View. Image is colored with Prismacolor colored pencils. Want to join in on the sketch challenge and all the other fun activities over at CardMakers? You can find it HERE. There is another fun card crop coming up in August on the CardMaker site. Hope you will consider checking it out and join us for lots of fun and inspiration!

Below is the sketch I designed for the sketch challenge:

Also wanted to share with all my crafty blogging friends my news of our newest family member. Meet Indiana Jones who we are already calling "Indy"

We have been actively looking for another dog for the last month. We finally felt the need to fill the empty space left from losing our beloved Scout last November. Indy is nothing like what we were looking for. We were thinking a bigger dog...maybe another Aussie like our Scout was. ...but then we saw the picture below on the internet. Everything just started clicking and we knew we found our new fur baby! Isn't he adorable? He has been with us since Sunday and I am already smitten and in love with the little guy!

So now that our search is over maybe I will find more time to start crafting again. Indy has already found his favorite spot in my craft room to hang out with me!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope everyone is staying cool with this massive heat wave we are having across the states!
