Friday Sketch #67

Hello everyone

Firstly I have to apologise for this post being a little late...

Problems with my internet have meant its a bit later than I would have liked, but we're all now back up and running (hopefully!) so there will be two posts today.

This one is for the fab Friday Sketch Challenge.

This weeks sponsor is Meljen designs - there are some really cute digi stamps on here, you'll be spoiled for choice!

And the sketch is by Carole - oooo and its a good one!

Here's my inspiration... It was made for a special boy who was three.  Happy birthday Blake!

Stamp - Lili of the valley
Sentiment tags - Kanban
Papers - digi from esty and kraft card
Die cuts - Spellbinders
Image coloured with promarkers (Skin almond, blush and sunkissed pink, Hair - Vanilla, tan, caramel and cinnamon, Trousers  - same as hair, T Shirt - arctic blue, duck egg blue, denim, Aegean, Parcel - Arctic blue and duck egg, shoes arctic blue and cool grey 3)  
Buttons - from stash

I hope you like him - its one of my favourite and most used mens stamps as its so versatile.

Anyway - enough rambling, please do stop over at Friday Sketch challenge and give it a go, Id love to see you there and you can check out the DT's creations too if you need inspiration.
