Friday Sketchers ~45~


Hiya,  First of all.. sorry for not being around much!..

I’m still not feeling whoopydoo, and even had to see the Doc today as it’s getting me down!! Got to go for blood tests on Wednesday, so hopefully it will show up something so I can get it sorted!

Then it was my son Jake’s 13th on Saturday, and have had visitors all weekend.

Besides that I’m inendated with work, Magazine deadlines and we’ve got the launch of the  new Gorjuss Girls pre-orders on Friday over at the SCS forum.. So not felt like blogging much, I’m sorry.

Did manage this quick card.. I have used the sketch from Friday’s Sketchers challenge blog, provided by the lovely Claudia [thanks hunnie, its fab!!!]

annstar11I’ve used the lovely Annie from the last Leanne Ellis serie for SUGAR NELLIE and coloured her with Copic Sketch markers.

The Papers are from BG Porcelain pad, SU Tag punches and sentiment [best yet] and added some ribbon, pearl dots from stash.

Inside view:


I’ll be back [said in a deep Arnold Schwarzenegger sort of way] soon, I hope

For now big hugs and have a great week!

Marlene xx
