Chloe Scooting through Pixie Meadow

Happy Tuesday everyone and welcome to a brand new Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps challenge! This week we have a fabulous sketch by Kim!  Thank you Kim - I adore your sketches! {grin}

Unfortunately I had to sit out of last week's challenge due to personal reasons, so I didn't get chance to tell you all about the changes here at SCRS. Sadly we bid a fond farewell to both Lisa and Laurel at the end of January.  I was SO sad to see these amazingly-talented gals go, but I know we won't be strangers!  But that means we have two fabulous new teamies to welcome to our little SCRS family... the uber-talented Shaela Odd and Alice Wertz!  Yippee!!  Welcome girls - I'm SO looking forward to working with you both!

A little side note here that may make you chuckle....  Shaela's blog is called "Yellow Umbrella Designs".  One of the TV shows I watch is "How I met your mother" and one of the recurring themes is that the mother had a yellow umbrella.  So every time I watch that show Shaela always pops into my thoughts!!  A silly little useless fact, but one to make you smile!! :o)

We also have the gorgeous Peggy Toole joining our SCRS team as our Sponsorship Coordinator.  Welcome Peggy! It's SO wonderful to finally be on a DT with you, girl!  So if you want Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps to sponsor your challenge, you know who to get in touch with!

I also want to send a shout out to our February guest, Amber Hight.  Welcome to SCRS Amber!

Okay, so onto my challenge creation.  I decided to use Scooter Chloe for my card today.  The weather is so miserable at the moment, that I really wanted to make a bright and cheerful card, so finally cut into my Cosmo Cricket Pixie-licious mini deck:

Sparkle Creations challenge is open to all players. Each week a random winner will be chosen, and they will receive a SCRS rubber stamp. [In order to qualify for a prize, you must use a Sparkle Creations image on your creation.]

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
