There She Goes April Sketch
There She Goes sketch was a fun one to work with. Love how you can dress it up as much or as little as you want to.
I decided to combine this sketch with this week's Color Throwdown as they had some wonderful earthy colours to play along with and it was perfect for this cute little gnome image from My Little Friend.
I coloured the image with Twinkling H2Os and my white gel pen came to the rescue for a slight colouring booboo the cat caused by jumping up on my desk while I was colouring the image. Typical cat, has to be the center of attention and check out what is diverting my attention from him! Needless to say, my payback was giving him a good brushing shortly thereafter LOL!
Next week and weekend are going to be very busy as hubby and I are once again cooking for the youth retreat at the church next Friday and Saturday. There will most likely be 150 hungry mouths to feed and there is lots of shopping and prep to get done so things may a bit quiet here next week unless I get a chance to do some stamping this weekend so I can schedule a few posts. We are always exhausted on the Sunday after all that work involved, and being that it is Mother's Day, I think the best gift I could get would be some quiet time reading a book in bed LOL! Mind you hubby is usually in much worse shape than I am (he is the main cook, I'm seus chef , prep and clean up girl) so my guess is I'll be entertaining the kids for a good part of the day and will have to take a rain cheque on my reading in bed. Or, maybe I can trade my hours in bed reading for a larger Mother's Day stamping gift....hmmm....that would be a great way to put a dint in my ever growing wish lists!
Okay, I've blabbered on long enough! Hope you are having a fabulous weekend and thanks for sharing a bit of yours with me :)
