Sketch Saturday #84

Hello everyone and Happy New Year.

I hope I'm not too late to enter this week's challenge on the Sketch Saturday blog - I've been trying to get photos from my camera to my computer since about 6pm - my computer is working at a virtual standstill at the moment and I keep losing my wireless connection with the internet and my printer :(

Anyway, enough of my woes - here's my card - I have made it for a friend of my daughter, who is having a party on Sunday. I have been struggling to get into the crafting mood for several weeks now, but I did enjoy using this sketch and making this card. I intended making a photo hanger to match, but it is just too cold to go and work in our kitchen this evening - I really hope I'm feeling more crafty tomorrow! I have given up on the idea of making a card for my nephew whose birthday is on Sunday too, he'll have to have a bought card (how naughty is that!!). Oops, seem to have gone woeful again!!

I have used Queen Charlotte from Whiff of Joy, coloured using pearlescent watercolours, watercolour pencils, and sakura stardust pens. The papers, flowers and ribbons were all found in my significant stash which really needs to be used and not hidden away (LOL!)

Well, that's enough from me for now - hope to have something else to show you again soon!

Love, Andrea xx
