A Fabaroony Sketch!!

Ch#98 Totally Papercrafts Challenge


Hiya everyone, ooooh its chilly at the mo, can't wait to see them daffodils popping up lol!  I just soooo pray we don't get snow this year!!!!!1111
Welcome to the first challenge of 2012 here on Totally Papercrafts.  

We'd  like to say a mahoosive thank you to our fabulous sponsors and all of you who supported our challenges throughout the last year.  It's been a pleasure to visit each of you, see your wonderful creations and interprations of our weekly themes.  
We've had a blast and hope you'll help us make 2012 even more successful.

This week its the turn of my lovely teamie Anne to set the theme for this week.  She's chosen this fab sketch by our lovely Sue.


and our sponsor
Simon Says Stamp

and this prize ( please note that shipping charges are the responsibility of the winner)


I loved working this sketch, loads of possibilities with it, its so versatile.  Here's my take on it, using one of my fav images from Mo's Digital Pencil - rofl, I'm sure I say that with all her images but I really do luv em, I can't just have one fav lol.


 As my mum has pointed out that I've forgotten her birthday every year for the last three - I've decided, in the event that I make it a fourth year - this will be her "oops I did it again" card lol. 

I'm entering this card into the following challenges......

The Pink Elephant - Anything Goes
Make it Monday - Anything Goes
Top Tip Tuesday - Anything Goes
Bearly Mine - Anything Goes
Bella and Bronte's Challenge - Anything Goes with Mo image
Card Crafters Circle - Make it Colourful

This is a scheduled post so hope all goes according to plan - and that I have a good shift at work today.  Roll on the weekend, have a busy day planned with Emily as she has soccer training and a footie match!  More reason to hope for warmer weather and no snow lol.

Please check out the fabulous designs by my team buddies HERE.

Take care, thanks for stopping by.
