Challenge 33 - Sketch Challenge

Hello Everyone,

Hope you all keeping warm in this horrible winters weather. It is a bit wild here at the moment with lots of rain and wind and snow forecasted.

But luckily I don't have to go out in this weather.

So we have our new challenge for the next week which is a lovely Sketch option.
Our Sponsor for the next week is Whimsy Stamps and they have sponsored us with some lovely images to work with.

About Whimsy -

Welcome to Whimsy Stamps!
We are a family owned art stamp company dedicated to providing crafters around the world with whimsical and fun rubber stamp designs. Our exclusive stamps are great for card making, scrapbooking, and many other crafting projects.
We have had a love of stamping and card making for many years. Our Co-Founder, Denise began her stamping career as an independent demonstrator for Stampin' Up!. As she grew to love stamping more and more, she wanted to be able to bring her ideas to life through rubber stamp designs.
With the help of our talented artists, we are happy to share the unique designs you see in our Whimsy Stamps Collections. We hope you'll find our stamps easy and fun to use. All of our ruber stamps are made from deeply etched rubber, mounted on Cling Cushion Foam, and once trimmed, they are ready to use with an acrylic block.
Our Shapeology Metal Craftings dies are exclusive to Whimsy Stamps and can be used with many table top cutting machines. These dies are made in the USA using top quality steel. They are perfect for cutting papers and fabrics. Many of our dies also coordinate with our sentiment stamps or can be used as accent details on your crafting projects.
We also have our own line of 6x6 designer papers printed on high quality, slightly textured vellum paper. And be sure to check out our large variety of digital stamps, custom designs, and digital papers and embellishments.
Whimsy Stamps is located in New Hampshire and all of our stamps are manufactured in the United States.
We hope you enjoy creating your craft projects with Whimsy Stamps!
