Sketch Challenge

Morning All.
Yesterday saw the start of another new challenge over at CRAFT, where there is a fab 'Sketch' for you to follow. I must admit, I do like a good sketch, it helps motivate those little grey cells, when your mojo has gone west.
I have a confession about this card, the image is a pre printed one from LOTV, which I find useful at this busy time of year - just wish my actual colouring looked that good.
Thanks for looking, and I'll see you again soon.

Deep In The Jungle

Afternoon All.
Well the kids have now broken up, summer holidays have begun, and still no arguments - yipppeee, hey, but it's only day 2 :o).

Anyhow, today see's the start of a new challenge over at Here Come The Boys, and I loved this one, it's a 'Jungle' themed male orientated creation.

Summer Garden

Evening All.
Sorry I'm late with todays posting, but it's just been one of 'Those' days. Small person had a PJ day at school, and I spent ages trying to convince him he really ought to put pants on under the pyjama bottoms as there were a bit loose, and I didn't fancy any flashing incidents at school. But at least they raised lots of money for Great Ormond Street Hospital. After dropping him at school I came home to find the cupboard under the sink had flooded - and so the day goes on.......
Anyhow, todays card is ready for the new challenge at CRAFT, where this week we would like to see your summer themed creations - think I should have done a rainy card, think it would have been more appropriate.
I would like to enter my creation in the following challenges;
Incy Wincy Designs - summertime
and
Secret Crafter - use pastel colours
Thanks for looking, and I hope you don't get too wet this summer lol

By The Sea

Evening All.
Sorry I'm running a bit late with my posting for the new challenge over at CRAFT. This time round we would like to see your splashy/water themed creations. I have used an All Our Yesterdays stamp on my creation, and for a change I have coloured using AquaMarkers (very appropriate for the theme, don't you think). There are four fab sponsors this week, all offering great prizes, so it's got to be worth joining in the fun.
I would like to enter my card in the following challenges;
Freshly Brewed - summertime
By The Cute And Girly - a day at the ...
Crafty Sentiments - summertime
Tuesday Throwdown - summertime
and
Thanks for looking and I'll see you again soon.
