Dare U 2 Digi Stamp Challenge 21 a Sketch

Hi Folks! Hope you are all well. Please excuse that I haven't been around for a while. Life has been filled with 'Back to school' (and a new one at that) for my eldest and 'first day of school' for my twins. I have also been prepping for The Craft Extravaganza in Lingfield where I will be demoing this weekend (more info here) with my stamps only arriving on Wednesday and still having to do my shifts in my normal job it's been panic stations in the Dry household....and a few very late nights. Couple that with the early morning school run and having to get 3 children presentable and out of the house by 8:20am (not to mention the onslaught of book corner books, library books and reading journals that need completing....oh yes, and the 3 trips to school every day as the twins are half day until Christmas) you'll understand if I look a little haggard at the show ;o)
Moan up over... back to the Challenge. This week there is a fab sketch to follow designed by my pal Christine Dark. I have altered it to fit an A6 card as I wanted to use Chris' fabulous Vicky for this one. I coloured Vicky with watercolour pencils, cut a panel using my Nestabilities and ran this through the Cuttlebug with an embossing folder. The flowers are punched, inked shaped and layered with dimensional glue gel. The flower centres are liquid pearls. The sentiment is from a Crafters Companion set.
Have a great weekend.
Ciao for now!

Life sounds hectic Sandra. Hope that first day went well with the twins, I remember it well although it was some years ago now and I was a total wreck all day.
Your card is beautiful, I don't know where you find the time to craft besides everything else, well done you.
Have a relaxing weekend if you can.
