Feature Friday "Sketch" Challenge #6's FRIDAY!! We have a special treat for you this week, a Guest Designer for this weeks challenge. We are very honoured to have Maria Bell host our Feature Friday "Sketch" challenge.

A word from Maria...

Hi my name is Maria and I'm so excited to be a guest designer for the Character Cafe. How fun!! I've been making handmade cards for 5 years. I love anything paper crafting from stamping & scrapbooking, to altered art. Digital stamps are such a great addition to the world of paper crafting. My favorite coloring medium is Copic Markers and Prismacolor Pencils. I have a lot of hobbies including blogging and photography. Thank you Kendra for giving me this opportunity to create with your fabulous digital stamps!!! I'm honored to be this week's guest designer! Happy stamping everyone!!

Here's her sketch.
