INSPIRATIONAL Card Sketches -DT Card



Hello everyone, another sketch over at this weeks Inspirational Card Sketches and a fab sketch it is to. This week we were given a digi image to play with from Whimsie Doodles, and you can also get a free image. Pop on over to the Challenge Blog for more details. This is what I've named"Tommy The Turtle" and he is just the cutest. I have coloured him with Prisma Pencils, Sansador and Paper Stumps. The papers are a mix of SU and BG. Various flowers from stash and my Martha Stewart Punch. I've used an insert from the "Designer Inserts Extreme" disc available at Bearly Mine designs and added my own text.
Please do come join in with us this week over at ICS, a super sketch to work with and the rest of the DT have stunning creations for you to see.





Our house went on the market yesterday so fingers crossed we got lots of viewings and sell quickly. The HIP is being done today and we have the tree surgeons in, dead wooding a large oak tree in the back of our garden.

Apologies if I've not been to visit but struggling to find any spare time at the minute.
Hope everyone is well and will try and get to visit soon!
