Today is my son's 15th birthday! I purchased this Extreme Guitar stamp with Drew in mind ... music is a huge part of his life, and he plays the bass guitar (we'll just pretend that this acoustic guitar is a bass!). The new Night & Day Specialty Designer Paper from the '09 Holiday Mini Catalog suits Drew too ... BLACK just like the majority of his teenage wardrobe!
Again, Karen Giron provided the perfect sketch to work with -- Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #39. Be sure to link your sketch card to Karen's post so everyone can see your creation! Here's more sketch inspiration from the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers ..
