House Mouse Challenge #92 a sketch

Oooh I'm late!! I've been busy running round trying to sort a few things out before flying back to Germany tomorrow. I had to go to the bank and sort out some details of my account and ended up in there for over an hour!!! Slow isn't in it.

My fab matey 'Scoopy Sue' has done a great sketch for us this time at House Mouse & Friends Monday challenge.

I can't for the life in meremember how I made this card - this will teach me to do the whole post rather than just upload the photograph of the card.  The image which I think is called A Carrot between Friends is coloured with Copics and I think the papers are Basic Grey's Green at Heart but wouldn't stake my life on it!! I rotated the sketch 90 degrees to accomodate the image. I cut the image out with a GoKreate die but it was too large so I cut off the ends, The flowers are from my stash and the stamens cut with a Leone Em punch and the leaves with a Crealies die.

My fabulous friend Di of Di's Digi Downloads is sponsoring us again this week stamps and one very lucky winner will be able to choose 3 free Digis 

  

I had a brilliant time at the NEC this weekend, made extra special by meeting up with so many of my fabulous bloggy mates - in no special order and if I've missed you please come and kick me on the ankle, Cathy, Vicky, Lou, Fleur, Jo, Kim, Tish, Clare, Kath, Marlene, Jacqui, Bev - thank you all so much for making the day extra special. It was lovely to meet up with Lisa, Laila and Lucy from Lili of the Valley and a very special thanks to my adorable friend Lols and Dawny P with whom I sat up talking until silly o'clock, not helped by the fact that someone stole and hour off us!!! Another special thanks to Debby400 for stopping off and having coffee with with us on the Sunday morning. It was great meeting Debby - I've known her for ages but this was the first time we've met IRL.

And not only that I met up with Liz, my Basic Grey teamie on Friday. I went over to her house for  a crafty day - in 5 hours we managed to colour one image each - so you can imagine - more talking than crafting was done!!

I'm flying back to Germany tomorrow and oh boy do I need a rest!!!
