Monday Sketch #1 (A Pair of Bubbens!)

And what is a Bubben you may ask? Well, it's a mischievous little stamp, that's for sure. I've lost this little guy a couple of times now and found him in the weirdest places. The last time I found him inside last year's SU catalog a week after giving up the search! He has sat on my desk for the past month now and I've almost used him several times. But, these are the very first cards that I've actually made with him. I won my Bubben back in August during Landstoken's month long Bubben giveaway. Bubbens come disguised in many forms- fish, Santa, reindeer, baby, pig and more. I won the Bunny Bubben which was really the one I may have chosen since my DD loves Happy Bunny and this Bubben reminds me so much of it. They are an unmounted purple rubber which stamps very well when mounted onto an acrylic block using double stick tape (Thanks, Lori!)
Since many of my blogging buddies asked, I am going to keep offering sketches on a weekly basis. I'll have a drawing every Monday (this gives you a whole week to play!) and then I will send the sketch card and a little something sweet to my weekly winner. (You will want to play if you can!)
I think this week's sketch is a pretty easy. Don't you want to play???

And I made a pair of cards so I could send one to my son who has an interview for a position he desperately wants. I told him he is a shoe in with his unique and charming personality.
