a sketchy one!

Hello to you all....hope you're having a lovely Saturday.....I believe that some of you are enjoying some sunshine today, its just a bit grey and cold here in Kent though.

The bathroom renovations are going well, I have been taking photos as the week has gone on, which I may bore you all with when its all done. With all thats been going on though, I think my crafting mojo may have found its way into one of the many rubble sacks in the garden, so I had a mooch around blogland and found a cute little sketch to get me going....this is the sketch:

and together with the theme of "Dear Friend", this is the current challenge at digi sketch challenge, so I am entering with my card.

I used a super cute Hanglar image which was donated by a friend, and is coloured with promarkers, the sentiment is printed on and is a font by the name of, Where the stars shine the brightest, this area is also embossed with the good old swiss dots folder! The other paper used is a Dovecraft oldie. I used a small section of Memory Box Savannah border die,with buttons, twine and gems from stash.

I would also like to enter this into these challenges:
cute card thursday - paper and embossing folder
in the pink - pink and bling
crafts and me - dies/punches
celebrate the occasion - girls birthday must use pink
pink gem - button it
digital tuesday - birthdays
sweet stamps - embossing folder/dies/stamp

So, thats all from me for now, enjoy your evening, I will be parked in front of the telly with a small vino!
