LIM sketch

Thanks to everyone who left a comment on my LIM card last week, and once again your messages of sympathy were very much appreciated.
The latest challenge from Mandi & Chrissie is a sketch, not my favourites I have to say, but thought I should give it a bash all the same.


I had a good look through my stamps as I wanted to use something that wasn't obvious, but after a good root through them I settled on a flower due to lack of imagination and nothing else suitable!



(The photo's are a bit crappy-not sure if it's Blogger or me, but are much better if you click on them)

I used some brown cardstock which has been in my stash forever and some pink and white spotty DP. Some buttons and floss completed the front and on the inside I printed a birthday greeting on the computer and added a strip of DP to pretty it up a little.




Nosy Prudy thought she'd get in on the action whilst I was trying to take my photograph's. I think she was trying to catch some rays after all the miserable weather we have had lately, although it has made everything in the garden shoot up, including the grass which I'm off to mow now.



Thanks for taking a look and for any comments you may leave.

  5. VERY nice, great colour combo - your cat managed to completely ignore the photography process too! I'm impressed - my dog would have crashed through it!
