We hope you'll join in the fun this week

Sketch Saturday ~ Wk 26

Thanks to everyone who joined in last week ~ I am amazed at the response every week, it no wonder Jo's sketchs are always so great to work with. I want to apologise for not being able to visit you all ~ life is just so busy lately ~ but I will try harder.

Well Jo has created another fabulous sketch this week ~ thanks hun.

I had lots of fun with this sketch again this week and thought I'd get Charlie out of his packaging as i haven't had a chance to use him yet. Oh and what a pleasure it was to colour him ~ and I can't beleive how quick I put this card together this week.

I brought some new gorgeous Filigrees from Eggstravaganza (thanks for the link Bev) and really wanted to use some of them on my card, but realised I didn't have a snowflake punch big enough to place behind them, so went with some white flowers ~ well they sort of look a little like snowflakes, lol......

And here's a close up of the very cute Charlie..... don't you just love him !!
