Sketch Saturday - Sketch #43

This week over on Sketch Saturday the sketch has been sponsored by http://www.dreams2stamp.de/ (I am a DT member), you have the chance to win this Bo Peep stamp, plus a really cute owl on a branch stamp. For my card I have coloured the main image with Distress Inks using the following colours...
Tattered Rose (Skin)
Scattered Straw (Hair)
Worn Lipstick/Faded Jeans (Clothing & Shoes)
Walnut Stain (Bo Peeps Crook)
Antique Linen/Worn Lipstick (Sheep)

The papers are all Basic Grey "Bittersweet". I have kept this card really simple on the outside...although I may add a couple of embellishments later.....I may not be able to resist.

Below is also a picture of the decorated inside...
I got no crafting time this weekend (apart from a little time in the early hours of this morning), on Saturday we went to see Paul Weller at the O2 Arena, for our anniversary. We left at 2pm on Saturday to travel to Greenwich (which is not easy when the online tube to go to Greenwich is closed) via the underground and Thames Clipper and we finally got home at 2am on Sunday morning.....sadly for me, no lie in for Mothers Day as Georgia was in a Gymnastics competition and we had to be there at 8.30am.....so not funny, must have been a MAN who decided Mothers Day was a good day to hold a competition....LOL Well I am so proud to say that Georgia got a Bronze Medal for her floor routine and vault......Here is a picture of her doing her routine....can you see her coach watching under the beam...LOL And here is one of her at the end getting her medal...Proud Mummy Moment....and a great Mothers Day gift.
Things are going to quite down this week, and I am going to have a quiet week and hopefully weekend after all the excitement of this past week. I just wanted to add another big Thank You for all the lovely cards I received....some are still arriving, as I got a gorgeous card from Coco this morning....all the way from France. I will try to get a photo of them all to show you over the next couple of days.
