Sketch It Saturday - Birthday Wishes

Hello everyone.  Hope your weekend is off to a good start.

I don't know what is up with me the last few days.  Feel like I could burst out crying any moment. Think the pre-menopausal maybe menopausal LOL!

Ah well you have to laugh - or I would end up crying!! :-)

Anyways, in order to combat this feeling, I squirreled myself away in the craft room and made a quick card.

Using the wonderful March, Week 1 sketch at Viva La Verve.

I used the wonderful Polkadoodles Winston Deluxe Papercrafting collection - the links are at the end of the post.

This is Etty, she is Winston's little friend.

Using the Design sheet and pre-coloured image, I layered up Etty with some foam dots.  I inked all the edges of all the layers including the layers on Etty.

For the inside, using the same papers and a message panel, to which I have added to little flowers.

Isn't she super adorable!

Hope the rest of your weekend goes well.

Our clocks Spring forward tomorrow morning, so one hour less sleep - do your clocks go forward in your part of the world.

I am entering this card in the following challenges.
