Fetch A Sketch Challenge 35

I've had one of those weekends where the best laid plans just went west!  I had planned to work from home on Friday instead of going to the office, which was a good job as Samuel woke up with a sore tummy and then was unable to keep anything down all day including water.  He was a rather odd shade of green too and did a good job of co-ordinating with his combat pj's!

So my plans for having an afternoon of colouring at my parents whilst the boys were entertained (Jacob was planning on practicing the keyboard as he's now doing keyboard lessons at school and I think Samuel would have done some baking) just did not happen on Saturday.  Jacob had a football match in the morning (they lost 5-10) so he needed a bath when we got home (and I got bit by midgies so I look a bit like I have chicken pox......) and then I had to go and do the food shopping which should have been done Friday night.

In between running here there and everywhere and trying to catch up on the washing, I did manage a little bit of crafting but nowhere as much as I anticipated!  Samuel is now fine and his appetite is back to normal so just waiting to see who gets it next as its rife at school!  I'm hoping that if it is me, I'm still well enough to craft!

Anyway!  It's time for another Fetch A Sketch challenge! This fortnight, Jenny has set the sketch and because it is October we are also asking for some pink to be added. here is the sketch:

We are also sponsored by Cuddly Buddly - I am a big fan of their customer service (which is second-to-none!) and they have a great physical and digital product range!  The winner of this challenge will have £10 to spend instore!

I've used one of the digi's from the store and coloured it with Promarkers plus some stickles here and there.  Papers are from my stash - can't remember the make as they've been lying around for some time! 

I've used an X Cut die for the fancy shape and added a pink gel pen dotted line around the edges, some ribbon from my stash, along with a little button slider and some pearls. I've dotted liquid pearls around the edges of the card and the two central panels.

Good luck with the challenge - for more details pop over to Fetch A Sketch!
