Isn't this a darling image? Take a wild guess who drew this!!! No,I can't take credit for this cute little 'Holly Hobby' girl....it's the very talented Sherry Hickey from Bits of Cheer!!! If you have never been to her blog....I highly recommend it....not only does she make beautiful cards for Operation Write Home....but she has written and illustrated a children's book as well!!! You can see my book review of her terrific book here. I bought her book from her a few weeks ago,and we got to chatting through email. She's such a sweetheart that I just had to ask her a favor!!! I mentioned how growing up I loved Holly Hobby ; hence the name of my blog!!! I also,love the Little House on the Prairie era as well. So, I asked... since she apparently has a gift of being able to draw(I can't draw a stick figure,LOL!!!)....yep,I thought....what the heck I'll just 'see' if she would be willing to try her hand at drawing a Holly Hobby girl for me!!! Well,of course we couldn't outright coping Holly Hobby because her image is protected through copyright laws and such....but she used Holly Hobby as inspiration!!! Wow!!! I'm so excited at how beautiful and sweet she looks!!! I don't even think I came close at justifying her on a card!!!

I had 'made' Sherry's original drawing into a 'digi stamp'....well,at least I 'think' I did, LOL!! I took the image (with the help of Photoshop Elements) and made the background transparent. Then saved it as a jpeg....so does that mean it's a digi stamp?....or is there more to the process!?!?! LOL,can you tell that I'm asking for help?!?!?! Any advice from peeps who have taken a actual hand drawn image and created your own digi stamps to share or sell....would be very much appreciated!!! ;) *hint.hint*

Yes,I know....I used stickles and added Iridescent Ice....this card isn't going to the troops....I will make another card for this same challenge for the troops.....I promise ;)
