Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge #32 and a HUGE give away.

What a fast week this one was. We took our son to see the Cleveland Zoo and did a few days at the Great Wolf Lodge in Sandusky OH. What fun we had. That zoo is amazing! We were there for 8 hours. I highly recommend it, you can bet we will go again.

So for this weeks sketch challenge -- I feel a little bit out of sorts not stamping for so many days so I pulled out a brand new Sparkle & Sprinkle stamp. The stamp is called Mini Max and it is this cute little frog in a martini glass. Isn't he darling? I also paired him up with the new in-colors from Stampin Up! These colors are wonderful this year!

.

The card feels like it needs something else but my brain is not in true create mode yet, lol so here it is....




And here is the sketch -- I hope you will play along.




Don't forget to check back tomorrow to see who is playing along on day one! If you decide to play please leave a comment with a link so that I can share it right here on my blog. We all want to see your creations.
