Hearty Sketch

Good Morning Crafty Friends!

Did you have a good weekend or can't you quite remember anymore? ;) We went out for dinner and saw a movie, something we hadn't done it aaaages! We saw Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, which I thought was a pretty good film. How dishy is that Daniel Craig, even with the dodgy glasses! :) But I am digressing......

Anyway, it's time for another Challenge at Friendship's Garden, we are providing you with a sketch to work with. This is my card:

I had a bit of a crafty block this week, so I am really happy that I've created anything at all. Nevertheless, I am pretty happy with this card. When I saw the image I kept hearing Tom Jones in my head and thought that would be the perfect sentiment.............................I've just realised I quoted my song wrongly. What a pumpkin.....;) Hope it still counts!

Anyway, I hope you can join us for our SKETCH challenge!

* Scalloped white base card
* Hunkydory Cat's Meow Die-Cut
* Echo Park For the Record & Dovecraft Piece of Cake DPs and red paper from my scrap pile, some of the edges smeared with some red ink (I drew the inside heart myself and inked it to match it to the theme on the front of the card)
* Gems from stash
* Computer-generated sentiments

* Crafty Boots (Inspired by a Songtile - What's New Pussycat by Tom Jones)
* Oldie but a Goodie (Have a Heart - All except the cat is more than 6 months old)

Before I go, I stumbled across this website today and thought it would be fun to share it with you all. Just to be clear, it's not about the guy, it's about the quotes! If only men would say those things! ;)

Have a good day!
