Getting sketchy with Creative Inspirations!!

Hello all of you happy bloggers!!
I am running behind with my post, this could very well be the busiest week of the year for me, I won't bore you with ALL the details but I would like to wow you with this strange fact!! August 18th..... That would be my brothers, my stepdads, my step daughters and my friend Nicholes birthday. No joke.... So uhhh, I have to cut this short and get to cake and card makin'!!
At Creative Inspirations there is a gorgeous sketch by the wonderful Nat, lots of layers on this one ladies, you'll want to stop by and take a look at what the CI girls have made this time around, it is nothing short of amazing!!

I've used this sweet little stamp from Belles N Whistles, isn't it cute!! Say, wouldn't it be neat if there was a challenge blog dedicated to all those heartwarming critters out there..... Yes, I am dropping hints ;) She's coloured in distress inks, the papers are K & Company, the doily MS punch (thank goodness!!!) and some stash goodies.
I am going to pop this in over at Colour Create, they have a fabulous colour challenge of duck egg blue, ivory (it was ivory before I distressed the bejeezus out of everything....) plus an additional colour from their photo inspiration and I chose brown, and make it shabby chic!!

Okay then, gotta run!!!
hugs, stephanne

Love the brown tones of this one Stephanne, you have coloured it beautifully. October is the month all our family birthdays seem to happen, but luckily not all on the same day!!
