Stay Cool with a Sketch Challenge!

Do you love sketches? I do! 
It's Thursday and that means a new sketch from Jen 

Here is this week's sketch #105 -- designed by my teamie, Sheri!
I chose some adorable Hambo Stamps' images for my card today: Stay Cool (1516) and Say Cheese (3222). Although the Stay Cool sentiment was designed to be used with some cute penguins and winter stamps, it can be paired with other images too! I think this mousie's stance is pretty cool!
I like this color combo and wanted to show it's not just for Halloween. My designer paper is from American Crafts. I stamped on Poptone Sweet Tooth Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink (also available at Hambo Stamps) and colored in with Copic markers.

Hambo Stamps has just released some super funny and punny new images in both red rubber and clear stamps sets. Check out the new arrivals HERE. There is even one that was a surprise to me! Check them out and see if you can guess which it is!

The ribbon is from the June Ribbon Club Assortment at Really Reasonable Ribbon. Check out the RRR Hop today HERE for a chance to win this month's assortment!
The Deconstructed Sketch girls have some terrific samples to show, so be sure to have a visit at their blogs too!
