whimsical wednesdays #11 lets get sketchy

happy wednesday :)  hows your week going so far? hopefully good and if not well remember its almost over :)
this week over at WW our challenge is to use this awesome sketch created by our very own super talented nanne
make sure you check out how the rest of the amazing dt used her sketch. thanks nanne this was really a fun one to play with :) 
 im entering this over at the pink elephant whos challenge is hearts.
bearlymine : anything goes 
sweetstamps: hearts
papertakeweekly : uh oh i linked this to the wrong challenge of theirs.. this was supposed to go into the anything goes but i added it to their diecut challenge. sorry ptw! :)
and karensdoodles: valentines/love

heres what i came up with :)
this weeks sponsor  is  stamp fairy who are donating  $10.00 worth of digital stamps to one random winner.  how generous, thank you stamp fairy!! 

us dt gals were allowed to choose any image we wanted so i chose  lenny love #5 for my card
isnt he just the cutest :) i paper pieced him using 7gypsies paper. .i used my viva decor pearl pen for his nose and eyes.

                                            for these hearts i used stephanies "with love"set.

the hearts  are the same ones in the previous pic, i just stamped them stacked then cut them out to make one piece.  i also stamped the sentiment onto some twill, also from the with love set. see how nicely they stamp out :)  

thanks for stopping by today hope ive inspired ya even if just a tad :) be sure to play along with our fun sketch challenge . dont forget to check out the stamp fairy shop lots of cute cute digis . and dont forget to check out the rest of the WW samples for the week :) have a  crafty day or night :) xxxshelly
