Sketch Saturday # 54

Oh boy...when will this dratted rain stop? I know I complained about the heat last week but its one extreme to the other isn't it? this rate we'll all have webbed feet and waterlogged wellies lol!

Today's card is for Sketch Saturday and I really enjoyed the sketch created by Mandy, it was a real pleasure to work with...thanks Mandy! I'm getting worried as this is the third day running I have inked up some rubbah...I wonder if I'm sickening for something lol! I've used this sweet little Elzybells image which has been marker coloured and mounted onto some yellow (Core'dination) and tan (SU) card stock. The design papers are by Carol Ann and the ribbon and gems are from my stash. The glass pebbles were sent to me for my birthday by my lovely blogging buddy Emma...thanks Emma they are just perfect for my card :) I wrote the sentiment myself as I couldn't be bothered to come down from upstairs to create one on the PC lol! The flowers were created with an X-Cut flower punch. Thank you for visiting me today :)
