SSW200: Doodle Garden

Happy Wednesday

Welcome back to the sketch challenge over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  We have a great new sketch for you to try this week and a fantastic sponsor.  It's Jenn from the Doodle Garden

Hi all!  Thanks for taking the time to get to know a little bit about the gal behind The Doodle Garden digis!  I'm Jennifer L Nilsson (but please, call me Jenn or Jenna!). And I am blessed to be able to work full-time from home as a licensed artist.

I enjoy creating bright whimsical pieces for manufacturers, but also wanted to be able to offer something to those who like to craft. So I have begun my journey with digi-stamp designs with my Etsy shop: The Doodle Garden.  It's fairly new, but is growing pretty fast and I am SOOO enjoying creating these little whimsies for YOU!

The prize this week is 5 single digis (sets are not included) from Jenn's etsy shop.  
I made this card for a young nephew so I used a spring underneath the monkey.  You can't tell from the picture but he jiggles like jell-o when the card is moved.  I don't know if my nephew will like it but my son couldn't STOP touching it!!  

I like the springs but I wish that they sold them in smaller sizes.  I barely fit the spring underneath him (I had to do some creative cutting and if you look carefully at the photo, you can still see a bit of the plastic near his ear) 

I still like him.  Don't forget to leave a comment on the blog so you can win!
