Vintagey Friday Sketchers...

This week Carole has supplied a fab sketch full of possibilities! I had seen something like this on a blog(sorry I forgot who, it was a while back) but had wanted to try it out... I know part of the sentiment is covered but I thought that the message was enough there to get the jist of it!
I distressed all edges with Vintage Photo as well as the outside of my Gorjuss girl. She was colored with Twinkling H20's.

Paper: K & Co. Madeline
Inks: distress inks, twinkling H20's
Accessories: button and twine ~ stash, flowers ~ cut with punch, little rose ~ eBay


Well I hope everyone is having a nice day. The sun here is deceiving because I went out with the dog it was freezing!! But it is supposed to get warmer later so hopefully we can get in some first of the year bike riding!! Thanks for stopping by!!

You probably don't want to know that the sun has been shining today in the UK and it was warm too and not a drop of rain in sight. Hope it warms up for you too.
