A Sketchy Post

Good morning everyone!

Almost weekend, can't wait :) If you were worried about my post title, no need, I'm not involved in any dodgy business but just referring to the Delightful Challenge theme this week, asking you to use the SKETCH provided to inspire your crafty projects. Those of you who've been to this blog before know how I feel about sketches and again I had trouble to keep adhering to the sketch. I have no idea why it is so hard for me to do, but sketches are always the most difficult theme for me. Anyway, I did manage to make a card, but I also managed to give my own spin to it:


* Digital Delights Mr Gnome & Christmas Sentiment Set, Coloured with Promarkers & Spectrum Noirs
* Studio Light DP & assorted scraps
* Crafters Companion Scoring Board to create the scalloped edge
* Wooden butterflies from local store (Xenos)
* Ribbon, peeloffs from stash

If you enjoy using sketches or if you are sketch-impaired like me but still enjoy a challenge, come and share your work with us!
