Challenge 25 - Sketch

Well I am now back from my wee jaunt to UK and totally shattered. I forgot how tiring it is to look after a 2, 4 and 7 year old full time so I take my hat off to all you lovely grandmas´who do it regularly.
It is my turn to set the Challenge this week with the Creative Card Crew and I have chosen one of Sharon´s super sketches as I know how much we all love playing with these plus it is a wee while since we set a sketch challenge at CCC.

We also have a great prize from our Sponsor this week. Dew Drop Craftz are offering one FREE digital download AND any 2 stamps from the Misty B Range.

I have coloured my image with Prisma´s and all papers are from Designer Extreme Vol 111.

Enjoy your day and I hope the sun is shining for you. Off to catch up on my other DT card which is also late this week. -x-

Oh Nic! it's sooooo good to see you. i've been babysitting on tuesday all day and again today and it is very tiring even tho' it's only been for 8 hours! i'm too old, but it's way too much fun and she entertains herself well too.
