Stampin' for the Weekend challenge #10

Hello peeps, a very happy Friday to you all. It's week 10 of our Stampin for the Weekend challenges and today is a very special day for me, as it's a challenge set by me in the form of a sketch. This is a first for me, never before have I drawn a sketch, so I thought I'd better keep it simple mainly because I am hopeless at!!! But first check out the prize that's up for grabs, our sponsor this week are Sir Stampalot.
The lucky winner will recieve the fabby stamp set below.....
Ok so here it is, this weeks sketch challenge set my lil ole!!
But just look what my very lovely, not to mention ever so talented teamie Mum at SFTW Donna has done to my feeble drawing, doesn't it look so professional, thanks my luvly you did a brill job for me......mwah!!!!

And here's the card I made. I've used those scrummy Basic Grey "granola" papers. The image is from Sugar Nellie, which has been coloured with distress inks, then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The sentiment and oval punched shapes are from Stampin Up. Flowers from my stash and the roses I always purchase from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I'd like to say a huge thank you to my lovely Stampin' for the Weekend team buddies for creating such gorgeous cards with my sketch, they have all done me so proud. Please check out their blogs and see for yourselves.

Well Donna and Kimmi have had a very busy week this week. There is even more exciting news to follow over at the Stampin' for the Weekend blog,our new stampin' family members will soon be revealed, I so can't wait to find out myself. We had over 100 entries for our DT and GDT call, wow!!! thank you to everyone who applied.

We are off to West Wales for a few days, well that is hubby, myself, Georgia & Yasmin. Tom and Ryan don't want to come, they're 17 & 15 and it's so not cool to go on hols with the parents....pmsl . It's the first time we have left them on their own....oh eck....I'm dreading what state the house will be in when we get back, especially as all I've done this week is ironing and spring cleaning.....I've warned them NO parties...pmsl. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

ttfn, luv 'n' hugs

I loved this sketch, as I am such a stickler to put things on straight,
making the image go on a angle like this has stopped me worrying,
Thank you for your lovely comment,
