Here is a little about Krista, owner/designer

I Love to Draw. That about sums it up.

It is what I have done since my Dad gave me my first "real art book", lets just say a few years ago. It is all I've ever wanted to do. I was lucky enough to live that dream and work as an Animator for over 15 years. Almost a decade of which I worked at Walt Disney Feature Animation Florida, up until they shut their doors in 2004. I since then, have concentrated on raising my 2 beautifully spirited children, while making a "new" career in illustration and design. It was this new path that let me to cookie decorating. This was a perfect outlet for me, combining my love of baking and my true "need" to create art. 
Once I got into cookie decorating and discovered all the possibilities, I wanted to find more images that I could put on a cookie. This is how Drawn with Character was born. I not only want to provide usable clip art for digital artists but cookie artists as well!

Theme: For a Couple
Could be anniversary, wedding, friendship, etc

Krista kindly gave the DT some images to use and below are some project to give you inspiration.  As usual click on the name to leave our DT member some love and the title to go to the store.

Challenge 91 - What's the weather (sun, wind, rain, snow etc)

We really enjoyed seeing your activity/hobby projects.  It was really nice how the theme was embraced by all that entered.  Sometimes I think as crafters we get stuck with the same style and it's good to try a theme you wouldn't normally try.  The Winner and Top 3 will be announced later (you know what's coming next) become a follower and you won't miss the post.

Here is a little about Lizzy.
Lizzy has always loved the stranger, quirkier side of life and that is exactly what she loves to create. Her art described as a perfect combination of sweet and sour that glitters up the grunge! As a lover of all things whimsical, kawaii and creepy cute, she throws in some Pastel Goth with a touch of glam, punk & rockabilly pinup!
She has certainly never been a mainstream type of girl and definitely won't fit into your stereotypical cookie cutter artists role;  but rather she finds beauty in the truly unique, big eyed creepy little cuties with a bittersweet sadness. She is never truly happier then when she is in her art studio painting or sewing, creating a whimsical dream world easily recognizable as her signature style of creepy yet cute, all the way from the haunting darkness to the rainbowtastic, Lizzy’s creations are lovingly sprinkled with a heartbreaking sweetness.
Growing up a child of the 80's, pop rocks princess, with an extreme fondness for anything candy coated, Kawaii Kitten & Ziggy Stardust, all of which had a major influence in the work that she is creating today.  Lizzy employs many different mediums when she creates, anything from mixed media painting to sewing with many different textiles, the end result always being the same;  A whimsical dream world filled with big eyed beauties, creepy little cuties and quirky monsters of all shapes and sizes.

Prize: 3 images from the store 
  
Theme: What's the weather
  (sun, clouds, rain etc.)

We were generously given some images to use.  To go to the store follow the title link.  To leave some love and see how our talented DT have made their projects click on the name.
