It's Time for a Sketch & a New Release

Good morning friends.  We've got a lot going on today over at Pollycraft Designs.  Paula has a new release so be sure to stop by and check them out ... they're adorable!  And since it's Monday, we also have a new challenge over on the Pollycraft Challenge Blog.  Our sweet Paula has drawn a sketch for our challenge this week and you can find all the details here

I used one of the new releases, Barclay's Star.  Isn't he the cutest little squirrel?  And he was so much fun to color.  I tried to add some texture to his tail by using different colors ... not sure if it really worked but I kinda like the way he turned out :)  He's colored with copics and colored pencils and I used Glossy Accents on his nose and teeth.  I paper pieced the large star and applied some glitter paint to both stars.  A bit of ribbon and some buttons finished my card.  My sentiment is from the Friend Stamp Set by Precious Remembrance Shop.

Our challenge is being sponsored by Bunny Zoe's Crafts and the lucky winner will receive a voucher to their shop.  Please stop by the Pollycraft Challenge Blog to see the gorgeous work by the rest of the DT.

Thank you for stopping by.
