CES Challenge # 32...Sketch

Wow what a busy week....juggling school and of course the major event of the week...Sophie's birthday. Thank you to everyone who left birthday wishes for her...she was chuffed to bits when she read them all! The major downer of the week is that the Kindle we bought Sophie for her birthday went kaput after only a few hours reading time...the detail on the screen was completely unreadable but all credit to Amazon for their swift response and a new Kindle arrived yesterday morning!

I've had no time to craft this week so its just as well I was organised and had made my DT card early for CES gorgeous teamie Sue has designed a SKETCH for this weeks challenge and I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed following this one...the different shapes and unique layout really made me think about my card...pop over to CES for more fab inspirational cards from the rest of my DT buddies...and thanks to Sue for such a fab sketch!

The lucky winner this week will recieve a £10 gift voucher to deduct off any order placed in Crafty Emma's Store (P&P not included)....I hope you'll be able to come and join in the fun with us this week!

The sun is starting to warm up & spring is truly in the air! A little question Donna, i'm planning to take my girls to vivist London pretty soon, do you have any tips of where is good to stay, some nice B&B, not too expensive and near the Primemark?
