A Little Bit Sketchy

This week I decided to make a couple of cards which followed some of the sketch challenges out there, and here is the first one......

For this card I have followed the sketch from the latest Friday Sketchers challenge, and I thought that this little stamp from Denami would be perfect for the challenge. I love these cute little chicks as they are so quirky, but also easy to colour's literally a five minute job with alcohol pens.
I have coloured them to match with my backing papers which come from a DoCrafts Forever Friends 6x6 pad called Party Time. There is actually a bear on the base layer but I had to cover him cruel!

Anyhoo I thought I would enter this card in to the following:

Make it Monday
Friday Sketch
Bearly Mine - Anything Goes
Paper Shelter - Anything Goes

Finally - a little confession to make - I have been to the cinema today to watch.......A Diary of a Wimpy Kid Dog Days. It's OK - I had my son with me for cover, but this is normally the type of film I would wait to come out on DVD and then watch covertly at home! I have to admit though....whilst not the most complex of stories (it's designed with pre teenage boys in mind after all!!) - I did laugh my head off on a number of occasions.....I think it's good to be a bit of a child sometimes!

Well it's back to adult life for me now though....dinner to sort out, house to clean - bla, bla, bla!!!

Thanks for stopping by today.
