Digital Tuesday - Natascha's Sketch

Happy Tuesday!

I'm still on cloud 9 after the NFL football playoffs this past weekend!  WooHoo Steelers!....STEELER Nation is going to the Superbowl!!!

Stamps: Clear Dollar Stamps digi 
Paper: Basic Grey dp, Brazzill cs.
Ink: SU! classic pad, Prisma markers
Other: MS border punch, SU! brads, 
Am.Craft ribbon, DejaView sticker,
clouds (gifted by Pat)
My son thought the sky needed birds, so he drew some!

This sweet image is from one of the special digi sets donated for Help For Katie.  It's from Clear Dollar Stamps by artist True D (Trudy Sjolander)!

To keep up with Katie, see her blog where she shares her heart on this new journey!  And to see what our crafting community is capable of when one of our own needs help, click the "Help for Katie" link above!!!

Today at Digital Tuesday, we have a sketch for you to play with from our lovely Natascha!  As most of you know, I am NOT a sketch person, so I did my best while keeping with my CAS style!  You'll want to see the actually sketch on the challenge blog before playing along!  lol  While there, check out the wonderful inspiration from the rest of the DT and read all about our wonderful sponsor this week, Stamp Fairy!
