A Sketchy Spring Day

Hello, everyone!
It's a sketchy Spring day, here. It can't seem to make up it's mind if it's going to be cloudy, or sunny. First, we had a forecast of all sun, but now it says it will be partly cloudy all day......I believe that! lol! Anyhow, here's a sketch that I used to create a Spring card to try to keep the gloomy grays out of my head.

This is Sketch No.#60 that I found at From the Heart Stamps Blog.
Here's the cool thing about their sketch challenges: EVERYONE IS A WINNER! You can earn a $1 discount code toward any digi image in their store. No, not by being a random winner, but just by entering! And even better, can use multiple codes toward purchases in their store! So, if you play three weeks in a row, you can buy a new digi for only $ .50! Play four times in a row, and "buy" a new digi with all four of your codes without spending a dime out of your own pocket! See......I told you that everyone is a winner there! :)

Anyhow, I put this card together today using the image that I had picked up in their store (using my previously earned codes!) for free. :)
This uses the Happy Mail digi.

I hope you're enjoying your day! I appreciate you stopping by, and would love it if you'd leave a comment!
Thanks for stopping!
Happy Crafting!
