Sketch challenge at Bearly Mine

So I'm back again, what's that twice in a week.

Yeh Yeh I know that would have to be a first in a very long time, but even though it's twice I'm still running a day late for this post.

So this week we have a "SKETCH" challenge over at Bearly Mine Challenges and it was an awesome sketch and was just what I needed as I had a card order from a lady that works with my hubby for her sister's 40th so I actually managed to get this one done in one afternoon.

As always we have some amazing sponsors this week and they are

So onto this week's sketch

So that's it for me, I should have been in bed a while ago as I have to start work at 8am tomorrow morning.

I don't think I'll be on before Christmas so to all my followers and fellow crafters out there I wish you all a very MERRY CHRISTMAS & A SAFE & HAPPY NEW YEAR.

Nighty nite.
