My little friend

I love Autumn the crisp mornings and the smell of the leaves I'm just a country girl at heart. I love hedgies too so when I saw the Autumn stamps at Funky Kits I knew I had to have them in my sticky little mits (well look at me I'm adding a link in my text!!).

Well when I saw the sketch over at the Sugar Bowl (just to prove its not a fluke I've done it again!) I just had to have a go so this is going to be my entry. Had so much fun with this and its a sketch I will definately be using again. I love sketches as sometimes my mojo does a runner and they really help me out so I'm always saving them for future use.

So without further ado heres my little piece of paper art and I hope you like it. I love the look that distressing brings but when I try it it just seems to end up a dirty mess so the nearest I get to it is inking around the edges which is what I have done a little of here but not sure if you can see it.
Right, off now to put together my first Crimbo card so hopefully if all goes well I'll be back tomorrow. Take care folks and hope you all have a great Sunday. Its my little ones last day before they go back to school so we are going to do something special. Thank you for taking the time to have a peek and any comments are appreciated I love hear what you think.
