A Wee Sketchie challenge at Moving Along with the Times

Good morning all

I'm back with another scheduled post - this time its my DT post for

Moving Along With the Times Challenge Blog

This was supposed to be my turn to host this week 
but as I'm away on holiday our lovely leader Hazel is hosting instead - thanks Hazel!

And in the words of our lovely little Scottish lady Hazel 
the theme is 

A Wee Sketchie Challenge

And here's the Wee Sketchie!!

We have sponsors for this weeks challenge and a lovely prize too

- the prize is 3 images of the winners choice.

The DT were lucky enough to get some images to play with 
and I chose the cute - Train Spotting  available here

This image came at the perfect time for me as I was looking for a cute image to make a card for my grandson Jacobs 2nd birthday. on 13th December.  I got him a little train set just a week or two back in the Early Learning Centre - I don't know if he'll get it for his birthday or as a Christmas gift yet but I'm sure he'll be just as cute as this little boy whenever he gets to play with it!

This is what I did...

Image - Train Spotting from Scrappers Delights
Coloured with Copics and Prismacolor pencils
Papers - K and Co hopscotch boy
Die cut letters/number- Sizzix Vintage Market by Tim Holtz

We'd love to see what you can make with this easy peasy wee sketchy - I love sketches it takes all the thinking out of the card  and at the minute I'm a bit thunk out!!

Challenges I'm entering with this card

Perfectly fabulous card for any young man - Jacob is sure to love the bright fun colours and I'm sure he will be as cute if not more cute than this wee chap when he gets his train set :o)

So Cute Judith, love this innocent look on the boy, great card. Good to read you are enjoying yourself by the pool....I live in the pool in summer and always in my bathers so have around 8 pairs, so when one is too wet and I need to work inside and be comfy I change to a dry one....never wear clothes unless I have to over them.

Yes it will be nice to have our daughters and grandies here, sadly our son 'can't' make it as he is in retail and can't get time off.

Our pool is around 30 degrees C all the time as we have solar heating and being a deep pool it is essential. have a wonderful rest and take
