Fetch a sketch challenge 1.

Image- Penny Black transparent Wonderful Day set.
Paper from Funky Hand.

Hello peeps!!!!! wow its been a scorcher today!! hot,!! and do you know what else is hot??!! the new Fetch A Sketch challenge blog!!!
It has been lovingly cultivated and dreamed up by my lovely Funkette team mates Ruth and Jenny and I have so been looking forward to it.

I got home at 1:15pm and was so sleepy but a good old cup of coffee and mooch around bloggy land woke me up a bit and I got started on my card. The sketch is fab so pop over to the challenge blog and get have a go at it. 

The gingham paper is of course Funky Hand, which might I add is one of the sponsors this week, and the little bit of flowery paper I stamped myself using 2 of the flowers in my Penny Black stamp set. The adhesive lace is from my stash.

I got that far then went to fetch Mo from school, had tea, had a shower and....yep you guessed it...fell asleep!!! so I got up around 20 mins ago to finish it off!!

Do you ever forget about your old colouring methods??! Well, I do and whille I was looking for the adhesive lace this afternoon I found my old faithful earth tone chalks and brights set so I decided I would colour my stamp in with them, I had actually forgotten how easy and cute the finished result is with chalks!! love it!!!
(mmmmm...confession hedgie on the left there has a bit of a darker tummy...never lick the melted double decker chocolate off your finger then blend tummies with the damp yet delicious as it was finger......!!!)

So thats my little entry for the fabby first sketch over on the new Fetch a Sketch challenge blog!! I am also popping it in the challenge over on Penny Black at allsorts.

I am off to indulge in a lovely cold shandy now before I get busy out in my little crafty room again. I would love it to rain tonight to freshen the air up but it just keeps doing teeny showers.
Thank you for popping in on me!!
Huge hugs Lou xxx
