STUCK?! OCTOBER 15th Sketch Challenge..

Hello there,
How are you? I hope you are doing as well as can be! We have been having some amazing rain and the lawns and gardens are looking very happy at the moment!  So thankful!
It is time for the second sketch for STUCK?! October 15th  and it is a really lovely one..  And a big shout out to the wonderful sponsors for this challenge..
A big Stuck?! Sketches thank you goes out to Lindy's Stamp Gang for sponsoring this challenge, they are offering  A $25.00 gift certificate to their online shop to one lucky participant!

 Lindy's luscious luster is all uniquely two-toned! With vibrant shimmery sprays, flat sprays, vintage sprays, embossing powder and lots more! Lindy’s Stamp Gang is the creative” baby” of Lindy Plakinger. She passed away in 2008 after bravely battling illness. She was a self-made cartoonist, loved drawing, crafting, designing new products, and creating her funny cartoon characters! One of her greatest joys was traveling to stamping and scrapbooking conventions across the US, demo-ing to her heart’s content with her sister, and giggle partner, Vicki! Lindy’s Stamp Gang will continue, as was her hope, and dream. Her husband and daughter have taken over the company keeping her creativity alive. Tracey, (her daughter), has always been a “jar filler” in the background of Lindy’s Stamp Gang, but is now trying to fill some incredible shoes!
