A Twinkle for You!

Happy Tuesday girls! I hope you are warm wherever you are. Winter arrived yesterday here with a vengeance! A little bit of snow, which quickly froze into slick ice. Still bitterly cold today too. I'm so happy that the little man and I are able to hang out here at home!
It's Tuesday and time for another of Madelynn's Twinkling Tuesday sketches. She's only 8 but already so talented. Every week she gives us a sketch and this week was a doozy! I've had it for days, but blocked it out of my mind as I was totally flummoxed by the 3 main panels.
When I finally sat down at my stamp desk this morning, I wasn't sure what I was going to do. I considered a baby card since they are my favorite to make. Then I remembered that I had picked up a piece of Basic Grey paper a few weeks ago to use sometime on a Twinkling Sketch. So I pulled that out. It's not exactly what I envisioned, but you know, I've decided that I really like it. Hopefully the little bling ties each of the elements together!! Hopefully Madelynn forgives my "liberties" that I took with her sketch. My card today is an odd size: 2 3/4 x 8 1/2. I had a piece of So Saffron left over from last weeks card still on my desk. Using it up sounded like a good thing to do!

Be sure to stop by the rest of the Twinklettes this week. I've already made the rounds this morning and they are STUNNING!! You won't find a nicer bunch of girls around in blogland!! And they are super talented to boot! We also have 2 new Twinklettes this week: Jacquie and Kim! Welcome girls!!
We'd love for you to play along too! Use the keyword MTTSC7 when you upload at PCP or SCS so we can view your creation! Feel free to come join our group over on PCP too - we're a chatty bunch and would love to have you join us!!
Thanks for coming by today! I love it when you come to visit. Your sweet comments are a bright spot in my day!! I can't wait for you to see my Cuttlebug Challenge card tomorrow - I so totally love how it turned out!! I'll also have my Pink Papery Studios card too.
Have a beautiful day!!
