Twisted Thursday #13 and a BONUS!!

Hello my fellow challenge buddies! Here we are again with another Twisted Thursday sketch challenge, and I'm soooo excited to see what you all come up with in response to this week's twist, so let's get busy, shall we?!! Oh, and did I tell you that Shirley's 2 Girls' Ladies With Attitude are showcasing some brand spankin' new images?!! Well, we are, and I know you're just gonna LOVE them!!

Isn't this a fabulous sketch? It was created by my fellow Lady With Attitude, Pat. And she's come up with a really good twist, which is to ADD PAPER-PIECING. That little idea was a real bugger for me. But I persevered and came up with what I think is a pretty cute project. What do you think?
My card features the newest doggie, Ace, and the image is called Grad Dog (SG615). Ace, and his buddy Pogo, are available for purchase TODAY!! I know I have two graduations coming up this weekend, so this image couldn't have arrived at a better time. Can you see that I paper-pieced Ace's graduation cap and gown? I've listed all the other pertinent details of my card below.

We'd love to have you join us this week - seriously, this is a fun one for sure, so get your stamp on!! And in fact, we want you to play along with us this week so much that Shirley's 2 Girls have thrown in TWO FREE STAMPS for you to win. That's right - you have TWO CHANCES to win this week!
