I hope 2009 is kind to you all and that you all have a happy and healthy year ahead.
I'm still getting over the flu virus, but can see a light at the end of the tunnel now, just got to get rid of this nagging cough!

Well today is the first sketch of 2009 for sketch saturday, and the first DT week of the year!!
This weeks sketch is by the extremely talented Emma, who incidently is also offering an awesome prize for this weeks winner!!! a selection of goodies with a RRP of £20 !!!!!!!!! wow! what a prize eh?
Here is my card using Emmas sketch, I have used my stampin up papers yet again ;) I love them! The butterfly quartet image was given to me by my friend Debs from Auntys forum, as was the friend heart image, all I did was watercolour onto them and then bring all the elements together, added faux stitching with my white gel pen, then added the flowers with their shiny centres to finish. Hope you all like it, and hope you all have fun with the challenge this week ;)
