Welcome back sponsor
This is our last week with Inky.  It sure has been a fun challenge month and we were honored to have had them as a sponsor.  If you have not already, make sure you pop over to shop the Inky Impressions store, you won't be disappointed.

This weeks challenge is a clean and simple sketch challenge.  Please excuse my "amature" sketch.  My program crashed on me so I'm back to the old school way of creating.  So bear with me!!  This sketch can be flipped as long as it models the general layout.
Have fun!!!
And what would a blog post be without featuring our AMAZING DT!!!!
