I know you didn't come by to read my chatter, so without further ado, here's the sketch for today!

Here's what I've created using this great sketch by Bugaboo's very own...Min (she rocks!).

I love the Bugaboo Stamps Dottie images, and this Dottie Cake is no exception! (I have ALL of Dottie - she's awesome, in my book! So sassy! lol!). My image is colored mostly in PSE, but I added some Copic details to it after I printed it out. I fussy cut her, and layered her on some DCWV Celebration Stack papers. I printed up a "Happy Birthday" sentiment I found online, added some Stickles and rhinestones and called it "done!". :0)

Now that you've been inspired ( I hope!), why not head over to the Bugaboo Stamps store and pick up this cutie for yourself?
While you're there, don't miss the Daily Deal that Jodie has posted, and be sure to check back every day for a new "doesn't get any better than this!" price on some super sweet Bugaboo images!
I'd love to see you enter in the challenge over at Catch the Bug, too!  The challenge blog is also where you can find out all the lastest "dish" on what challenges are happening and what other challenge sites that Bugaboo is sponsoring (more chances to win some free Bugaboo!). It's also where you can check out all the other fantastic DT projects, including the OBG (Oldie But Goodie) stuff, the ABC (Anything But a Card) items, and the Tuesday New so much more!
Thanks for stopping by today!
Your next stop along our
Birthday Blog Hop 

Happy Crafting!
....and remember, if you should get lost along your way of hopping, you can always go back to 
Catch the Bug for a complete list of links! :0)
