Final Post as Guest Designer for From the Heart Stamps

Hello, everyone!
I hope you are having a wonderful day! I am very excited to share this weeks card post as Guest Designer for From the Heart Stamps! This is my last post as their guest, and I have had such a wonderful time helping them show off the wonderful digi stamps from their shop, and I hope you've had a chance to join them in their sketch challenges, like I have! 

Not only does From the Heart Stamps have some incredibly adorable images, but at From the Heart Stamps Blog a sketch challenge is hosted regularly. It is called a Sketch Challenge with a tWiSt: a sketch is provided, but so is an additional requirement. Don't need to feel overwhelmed with rules and restrictions! You can choose to use the sketch, OR you can create using the tWiSt....or you can do BOTH! :)
Here is the current sketch:

Sketch with a tWiSt #075
tWiSt: Use Buttons

The sketch challenge for this sketch is open for two weeks, starting today, giving you plenty of time to whip up your take on this one!

Here's a really cool thing about these 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! :)

Here's another cool thing about From the Heart Stamps.......they also run a month-long challenge in addition to their sketch challenges. "Why is that cool?" you ask??? Because if you use the monthly image, you will be emailed next months image 
FOR FREE! that I've explained my excitement about this great digi-stamp company, let's move on to my card for this week.  This week I have used the sketch, and I used the tWiSt.........sort of! You see, my buttons are not plastic, real buttons, but made of paper. I punched them using my Martha Stewart punch, which also embosses them at the same time. :)

I chose to play with the ever-so-suave Mice Surprise image on my card. I colored my image digitally, with PSE. This sketch was a CAS type, so I kept my card as a CAS card. My papers are from my stash; something I picked long ago at a store-closing sale. I was sorry to see the store go, but happy to partake in the great discounts! :)

A BIG thank you to the wonderful DT at From the Heart, and especially to Faith, the wonderful illustrator behind the images I've shown you, and to Imke, their Guest DT coordinator, for giving me the opportunity the past couple months! :) See you all in blogland!

I hope you enjoy your day! I appreciate you stopping by, and would love it if you'd leave a comment!
I hope you'll join us for the sketch challenge!
Thanks for stopping!
Happy Crafting!
