Allsorts Challenge plus DT CALL

Good afternoon everyone!  It's a miserable wet day here, so I've been amusing myself bloghopping - gosh, there's a lot of talent out there!!  I am LOVING being on a design team and consider myself very lucky to be on one.  I appear to be down a bit on challenge entries myself so thought I'd 'get back on the horse', so to speak LOL! 

This weeks challenge over at Allsorts is a sketch and a DT call.  I am going to try out for this though I doubt I'll get the call - that said, don't know if yer don't try!! They are such a talented bunch of ladies - and a very popular challenge!  If you have time, why not pop over and try out too?

This was a great sketch to work with - so much so I did two other cards based on this design LOL!

I wanted to do a card for my step brother Jonathon.  So far I am managing to stick to my New Year's Resolution of ACTUALLY using the cards I make, rather than saving them in a box LOL!
