My Time To Craft GDT - Sketch

Hello.... can you believe it's Saturday again already!!! so time for another of my GDT challenges over at 

and this week's theme is 


While I was unwell with flu I coloured a few images. This is the very cute Ava by Saturated Canary..... it's quite a long image and so I thought it would work well for this sketch...

Image: Saturated Canary - Ava
Papers: Wild Rose Studio - Antique Library
Big Sentiment: Anna Marie Designs
Just For You Sentiment: Craftwork Cards 'Botanica' Collection
Buttons: Papermania Polka Dot Capsule Collection
Die: Memory Box Open Studio Stitched Rectangle... used on top/bottom of image

Hope you like it.... :-)

please do pop over to My Time To Craft and see the rest of the team's gorgeous takes on this lovely sketch!

Gosh weekend seems to have come around again SO quickly. Shame that the weather didn't hold here in UK... we have rain forecast... but perfect weather for crafting and creating! :-)
New Game of Thrones Season begins this week... Yay!! ... and I'm also really loving Outlander!!! 
Whatever you have planned, I hope you all have a lovely weekend
Take Care
Love and Hugs

This is just lovely, Sue! I love Ava and I love how you've coloured her. And how cute are those polka dot buttons?!

There's a website you might enjoy called Frock Flicks 'because stretch velvet isn't historically accurate' which has posts on various tv and movie historicals - including Poldark! Often it's very funny!

Have a fab weekend!

love Mags B x
