Sweet Sketch Wednesday # 38


Well...the snow just won't let up...it snowed here most of the afternoon yesterday and once again we were quite lucky that it didn't settle...I noticed that the daffodils are starting to protude above the ground...poor little loves...if they decide to bloom shortly they'll be long gone by the time Mother's Day gets here in a few weekends lol!

Today's card is for the new challenge over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and I had such a fab time making this card...I was a bit apprehensive at first when I was sent this image to use on my card...anyone who knows me will know that I don't do complicated when colouring in images and this one really frightened me at first lol! I started off by colouring in the engine and fortunately for me the rest of the image flowed really well...thank goodness for my trusty Promarkers! We are sponsored by My Grafico this week and they very kindly provided all of the DT with their images...stop by the challenge blog if you can...to take a peek at what my teamies have created...they really rocked this sketch. My Grafico are offering a free set of images called Zoom Vroom to the lucky winner!

You really did color this perfectly, Donna - no need to feel apprehended - look how gorgeous it is! I would have loved this image to color. Your inking blends so well with the papers - simple and fabulous in all one breath! You get lovely snow and we get the rain and mud...lol! ;D I guess we're all just happy with the sunshine!
