Sketch #136 Sponsored by Pink Cat Studio

Happy Friday, Happy New Year, and WELCOME to Friday Sketchers #136, our very first challenge of the New Year! We would like to extend our sincere thanks to all of you for your participation and support over the past year and are looking forward to your continuing support and participation in this new year! I am Jacque from the US and am so thrilled to be hosting this first challenge this year!

First I would like to extend our sincere thanks to the wonderfully talented Aud of Norway who has been with Friday Sketchers for quite a long time but who has decided to step down at this time! Aud, we will miss you and all of your help, your delightful sketches, and your technical expertise on the FS blog. Our very best wishes go with you, Aud!! Big hugs from all of us!!!

Secondly, we are absolutely thrilled to announce that our newest member of FS is the inimitable and quintessentially talented Bev Rochester of the UK, whose blog All The Things I Love is so filled with inspiration, techniques, and lovely examples that you will want to visit there over and over again!!!!! We extend a very warm welcome to Bev and hope that each of you will visit her and make her feel welcome as well!!!

This week Friday Sketchers is sponsored by Pink Cat Studio:



Pink Cat Studio is all about offering fun and whimsical stamps to inspire your creativity. They have a huge selection of super cute digi and rubber stamps to choose from and they add more each week. Owner and artist Melissa started PCS in 2005 and over the years nothing has excited and inspired her more than to see your creations with her stamps. Melissa’s goal is to continue to delight & surprise you with her designs. Stop by the studio today and get in on the fun!

The prize this week from Pink Cat Studio is 5 digital stamps of the winner's choice! Thank you so much, Melissa!!

And now my sketch for the week follows. I hope you enjoy it and will let us see your interpretation as well. Feel free to turn the sketch any way you wish as long as we can see all of the elements! Enjoy!!!
