Totally Gorjuss 87 -Sketch.

Good morning everyone, hope you're all looking forward to a nice relaxing weekend. It's the first Saturday in July so it's time for a sketch challenge at Totally Gorjuss. As usual on the first Saturday we are sponsored by the lovely and ever generous Joanna Sheen. I love Joanna's online store, there's so much to choose from and no p&p.

Here's my take on Net's great sketch.

I used :-
Image :- Penny Black.
Sentiment and card candy :- Craftwork Cards.
Colouring :- Promarkers.
Martha Stewart snowflake punch, Cuttlebug embossing folders, Glamour Dust & pearls.

Quite a simple card but I hope you like it. I've been really short of time this week for crafting! I've managed to keep up with my DT work and I've done some other cards but that's it. I'm afraid I've been neglecting my favourite blogs. After 2 weeks of full time work my house is a tip. Especially with two big black Labradors. They might look nice and smooth but believe me they can cast. As well as chew things they shouldn't lol! At lunchtime yesterday I opened the back door and found Blue coming out of the garage. I thought that was a bit funny as I left the 2 of them shut up in their cage. The garage is where their food and biscuits etc are kept. And to save time I'd left the biscuits they get when I go back to work on top of the chest freezer. They hadn't touched the biscuits or my boots or socks or leads and collars or anything else and believe me there is loads of stuff they could have chewed. But.........they'd almost destroyed hubby's slippers lol! Out of sight of them I had to laugh, I couldn't help it!!!

Not sure if this card fits any challenges but I'll have a look later when I have time.

I found some challenges that I think this card fits:-
ABC Christmas :- M is for monochrome.
Stampin for the Weekend :- Favourite Things - PB snowman, embossing folders, MS snowflake punch, Glamour Dust, pearls and card candy.
Allsorts :- Free and easy.
Sir Stampalot :- Anything Goes. 

Thanks for looking and I'll catch up with you all later................I hope!
