The Diedrich Dare: Sweet Pea Pirate

Hello girls! Today is the first Whimsical Wednesday: Diedrich Dare challenge for the month of May!!! There are soooo many exciting things going on right now for the dare! First, our challenge for the month of May -

Are you squealing too? If not, you will be when I tell you that Lynette has graciously and generously donated a $20 gift certificate to her store for one lucky participant this week! I know huh?!!?
Sweet Pea Stamps range anywhere from whimsical to artistic. They are made of hiqh quality, unmounted red rubber. They have an amazing collection of images from three talented fantasy artists: Ching-Chou
, Elaine Cox, and Lisa Victoria. If you would like to see more samples, please check out the Sweet Pea Stamps blog.

I also want to add that Lynette is a wonderful owner. I ordered some stamps from her and had an issue and she was so quick to fix it! Above and beyond customer service so I'm really happy to recommend her and her stamps to you!

Okay, the other exciting thing going on in May is that The Diedrich Dare is welcoming not one but FOUR guest sketch artists! It's gonna be a great month! This week Kaitlyn has drawn a wonderful sketch for us. Her mom is fellow DareDevil Andrea.
Isn't that the cutest?!?! She did want to add that your image doesn't have to be a girl and the ribbon doesn't have to be polka dotted. Kids totally get the whole "not limiting creativity" thing don't they?

Lynette was so generous and sent the team some stamps to play with - thank you so much Lynette! I used Ching-chou kuik's Caribbean Treasure image** (which I noticed is on sale right now) for my card today. My pirate girl has a little sassy girly-ness that shines through despite being on a pirate boat.

This is the first image I've colored from the Ching-chou kuik line and I think I goofed on a few bits, but don't look at those, okay? Check out the stickles I added to her tail fin instead!!! LOL!!!!

Take a spin over to the Diedrich Dare blog to see the featured team member this week. And check out the rest of the team members too! I know I can't wait to see their creations this week!
