Sketch Saturday... on the RIGHT day...go me!!!

Morning all!!

phew! I've literally JUST managed to get my card posted to Sketch Saturday by the skin of my teeth... with just a couple of minutes to spare...
AND, I'm posting it here on the right day!! now thats progress!

Fab start to the weekend, up nice and early, and things going to plan so far... all we need now is a nice sunny day!

right... I'm waffling...

This week over at Sketch Saturday, its the oh so talented Tracey's turn to provide a sketch for us... and its a beauty!!

We are SOOO lucky to be sponsored by the amazing Krista Smith who has generously offered 2 Saturated Canary digis for the lucky winner... woooohooooo!!

Most of the 'Saturdays' have used Kristas digis this week... and there are some literally STUNNING creations... make sure you check them out...

Heres mine....


this is Frizzy jynx... LOVE her!!!!! 
I thought she was just perfectly sassy and cheeky enough for my baby sisters Birthday card... 
and her birthdays not till the end of the month... so I'm ahead for a change!!! oh my!

The papers are a mix of bits and bobs from my scrap draw... I think mostly MME, and echo park...
I didnt want anything too flowery, as she's not really a 'girly girl', so just made a little rolled flower from kraft to add a bit of 'something'.... a few buttons, bit of ribbon and some sparkly 'dots'...
The 'lil' was hand written on kraft, and layered on foam pads...
the SIS is letters from a crate paper set... I coloured over the original light blue colour with a promarker...
bit of doodling here and there...
et voila!

not sure the photo is all that good, but thats what you get when you try to take it at 7:30 in the morning!

right... off for a coffee I think...

see you soon!!
