Sketch Saturday....................

Hello,

Happy Monday hope your holiday has been wonderful. I can't believe it is going so quickly. Today I have made a card for the challenge over at Sketch Saturday which is your choice of any of the sketches so far. I have coloured my image with distress inks and added glitter pen to the flowers. I have distressed around my image with milled lavender. My papers I have distressed around the edges with Tim's distressing tool.

Thank you so much for looking and I wish you all a great week ahead!

love

Good morning Kim, i am so pleased to hear you had a fabulous christmas, i am like you can't believe it is over already. I couldn't get into the mood of it this year and by the time i did it was almost over! I struggled this year and i was not at all organized, we had lots of personal concerns this year so that probably didn't help, but im so determined to get myself organized for 2009!!! Well hun, this card is simply stunning, i just adore the distressed feel and the gorgeous colours you've chosen, they are stunning. Thank you for visiting my blog and always leaving such a kind comment. I am looking forward to visiting here loads in 2009. If you feel like it i would love to email you. Hugs Lind ax
