SFYTT-Sponsored by Anita B Stampin!

Hello hello! Are you excited for a BRAND NEW SFYTT? I have a feeling you're going to LOVE this one!

Pretty sweet sketch, huh? I'm totally crazy about this one! 
This month, we're being sponsored by a fun stamp company called Anita B Stampin! They have a lot of fun stamps in the store and I think they just had a new release, too!

For my sample, I used the adorable "Bears and Bunches" set!

I'm sorry about the terrible lighting on this card, the colors just didn't want to photograph right for me and I couldn't fix them in PSE, doh! Anyhoo, I colored the sweet bear with Copics and then cut it out with my circle nesties. I did cut a lot of the flowers off by doing this, but the sketch called for a circle and there's no way I was going to have room for a circle AND those flowers, lol! Just pretend they're there;)

Doesn't he have the sweetest smile?:) I also sponged the circle with Old Paper Distress Ink.

The sentiment is from Simple Sentiments by PTI and the fabulous twine is from The Twinery!

1. The SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY will be posted on the first Saturday of each month on at 8am EST and will stay open to participants until the last day of the month, unless otherwise noted.
2. This is for fun! Interpret the sketch as you wish and embellish as desired. There are no vendor restrictions, but we would love to see you use the sponsor’s stamps!
3. Each month we will have a Designer of the Month that will be chosen from past month’s participants.
4. Come and play with us on each and every sketch! On Christmas Day 2011 a prize package worth over $200 will be given away to one very lucky and loyal SFYTT stamper that participates in EVERY sketch for the year.
5. To be eligible for the prize package, you must complete ALL of the sketches by each of the deadlines AND link your creation to the link system on that month’s sketch post (the first Saturday of the month). Everyone except for SFYTT Sisters are eligible for the prize package, including Designer of the Month and international players.
6. When posting your sketch creation on your blog, please post the sketch and link back to the sketch post on When posting to online galleries, please use the keyword “SFYTT.”
7. Check out the SFYTT Sister’s links just below to see more creations using this month’s sketch.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you come play with us this month:)
