Hi all,

It’s Saturday which means it is time for another challenge with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. This week our challenge hostess for September Joycelyn Pelkey has given us a fun sketch challenge to play with.

This week our challenge is sponsored by MelJen’s Designs so I used one of their adorable digital stamps which is called Little Girl Bear Hugs … isn’t she just super adorable!!!!!!!! The Friends sentiment I used on here is a freebie I found on their blog a while back.


I used the MFT Die-namics Ric Rac Die to create the shaped piece at the bottom of my card. I was originally going to just add the ric rac piece to my card until I discovered that the two off cuts you get after cutting out the die worked perfectly to match Joycelyn’s sketch.


Here is the inside of my card, I found this sentiment as a freebie on MelJen’s Designs challenge blog a while back so decided to use it for my card today.
