Sketch Saturday # 55























Morning everyone!

I'm here with another quick post due to be at work. Got to get this Sketch Saturday card posted quickly or I'll miss the deadline...... can't believe the weekend will be upon us again tomorrow!!! I thought it was a brilliant sketch this week - nice and simple, that suits me, lol! I'm so lovin my High Hopes stamps so I inked up another little cutie - this one will be perfect for my Father in Law this Sunday as he loves gardening. He took early retirement in his 50's and ever since he has worked part-time as a gardener which suits him just fine.

I coloured my image with Polys and I think the paper is from a PaperMania set. The corner leaves are a Quickutz die and that's about it really.

Must dash off now..... I've got some naughty students to chase up who are missing their lessons in favour of a long weekend, lol!

Catch you later then - have a great day ;o)

TTFN and TFL xxxx
