Sketch Saturday #167 Terrys Sketch... and some EXCITING News...

Good morning, good morning, good morning!!
YES, I think there was a call for 3!

I have THE most exciting news to share today!
Did you see the new logo over in my sidebar?
Go on... have a look--------------->
YEP!...I've been picked to be a Guest Designer for Simply Sassy!!

This really is a big deal for me... and I'm SO, SO stunned, honoured and grateful to have been asked!!!
Whoooohoooooo!!! 
I've just fallen head over heals (and back again) in LURVE with the Simply Sassy stamps, and am so excited to be able to play with more!!!

Right, that's my news! on with some cardage...
This week over at Sketch Saturday, Jo is taking her monthly break, and Terry has provided us with a BRILLIANT Sketch...

Here's my card following it...

The Gorgeous Stamp is 'little light of mine' from Simply Sassy
I actually won this stamp a couple of weeks ago!

I've coloured her with promarkers and pencils...
The papers are Echo Park Victoria Gardens and a few odd scraps...
The mesh fabric was from my scrap clothes bag...
I've cut a frame and some swirls from Kraft using a Marianne creatables die...
Flowers are from my stash... and doodles are from my own fair hand ;)


This card isn't as colourful as you are used to from me... somehow I didnt think too much colour worked with the image... and I've had these yummy papers sitting on my desk looking at me for well over a week now :)

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges...
Colour Create - Pink, Green and White
Craft Us Crazy - Anything Goes
 ABC Challenge - A is For Auburn

Well thats me for today... I'll be back tomorrow :)

Thanks for visiting!
