Whatcha Got Cooking? -By Lori Designs Challenge #16 A Sketch!! DT Card!

 I just realized I hadn't posted anything in a whole entire week!! I know I'm such a bad blogger...but not really. I've been super busy lately trying to get my Etsy shop stocked back up and taking pictures non stop...some days I wish I had 2 or 3 of!!

But I'm so happy Thursday has come again as it's time for another "By Lori Designs" challenge!!! And this week Lori decided to shake things up a bit and instead of a color challenge she drew up an adorable sketch for us to play with!! If you love sketches like I do, you won't want to miss this one!!

Here's a little inspiration for you....

Keep scrolling to the bottom of the post for the sketch used for my card and for an important announcement from Lori herself!!

I just love this little chef image!! She is a lollipop and you can find her in the "By Lori Designs" shop HERE!

I made the sentiment myself and of course will have one to share with you in a couple days on my be sure to stop back by!

I can never get enough of this glittery cardstock paper!!!
