Friday Sketchers *82*.....

Good morning!! I hope everyone had a great week-end! I did! First off I got to go out shopping alone for an hour ~ first time in like years and secondly the girls pageant at Church was last night! Rach was alittle under the weather so she sat this one out but Kelsey and Lauren sang there songs beautifully!

Anyways they were nice and tired after it so I got to make a card! I used this adorable image from Whiff of Joy ~ Willow with Santa's Stocking. (She and the rest of the Christmas and winter stamps are still 20% off!)

I have followed the lovely sketch from Friday Sketchers for this one: I have colored my image in with distress inks and twinkling h20's, which Katharina is now carrying and you can find them here. I love these things ~ I am really bad at coloring and these make it look so much better!

Paper: My Mind's Eye
Inks: distress inks, twinkling h20's
Accessories: Charm, ribbon ~ Micheals, Pearl ~ Prima, Punches ~ Martha Stewart

Before I go I will leave you with a picture of me and my girls before the Christmas pageant! Don't mind me ~ I look like I haven't slept in a week!! haha I tell my hubby that he needs to learn how to do there hair or something because by the time I am done getting them ready there is no time to do my own hair! I always look like I just woke up! LOL
Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate you taking the time I know how busy it is right now! Can you believe that Christmas is less than 2 weeks away!! Where does the time go???
Well I hope you have a great day! I got some baking to do!

Bad at colouring? you? Kathy your colouring is stunning! (but I guess we're all too critical of our own work LOL) Your card is amazing, I love the colours you've used for willow and the design and details are superb! shopping on your own, what bliss! I'm pleased it isn't just me who doesn't get time to do their own hair, mine is always scraped into a ponytail! hugs, Jane xx
