This weeks challenge from A Spoon Full of Sugar is a sketch.


I cant believe it - I've actually finished mine on a Tuesday - the same day the challenge comes out! In the past weeks I have been running so late with the challenges, but school is back - so now I have time to craft! Also isnt it crazy - the shops are filling with things for Christmas - my little one is so confused. He is starting full time school in January, so we have told him it will be after Christmas.......well as you know it.....he wants to know if Christmas is now after tomorrow as he has seen the Christmas things in the shops. I mean try explaining to a four year old that Christmas is not for another 109 days (or 109 sleeps)! Oh Well enough Rambling....

For this weeks challenge I have used background paper which comes from my stash, Doodlebug Sweater Stripe paper, blue metallic card, green bazzill, Hamish with his tractor Sugar Nellie Stamp, and Studio G clear stamp For my Friend. I have water coloured the image and used a white gel pen to give his shirt a check effect (not a good photo as too much rain so it was dull and dark) The card does look a bit plain I need to get some boy embellishments.........

Fab card Jean, just perfect for a little boy. I know exactly where you are coming from on the christmas front, you'll have to have a chart and cross off each 'sleep' as a kind of count down to christmas!! Thanks for joining in.
