Sketch Challenge #226

Good Morning Peeps!

Yep, this is a four day weekend full of camping, picnics, parades, and all sorts of summer fun. I know everyone is going to be busy and having a good time. I hope, during all the fun activities, you have a chance to reflect on the meaning of this holiday and be grateful. But then look who I’m talking to… as all of you are well aware of the meaning of this holiday.

Yesterday was one of OWH’s biggest Blog Hops and I hope you’ve all gotten a chance to visit every stop, or at least get started hopping. I’ve had a chance to browse but I’m planning on visiting the bloggers today. As usual there are a ton of creative ideas and inspiration to be had.

Speaking of inspiration… here’s this week’s sketch.


The inspiration card is by Karma. Unfortunately I couldn’t find a blog for her, so leave some love on this post. You’ll notice the heart has been left off of the sketch. I’d like to see what you’ll put in that space. Will it be a shape, an image, a sentiment, what?

Wishing all of you a fun filled, and safe, holiday!
