For Keeps

What a day it's been. Sun, snow, and a little bit of a gale force wind. Crazy.

Although it is FRIDAY! So I couldn't care less what the weather wants to do with itself as I'm now off for two days. Monday morning will come around like a bat out of hell, but I'm trying not to think of that right now.

So, I've been having Some Odd Girl withdrawls, and then I remembered I've had Pixie coloured up for aaaaages and she's been waiting patiently to have her time. 

I decided to join in the SKETCH CHALLENGE over at the Some Odd Girl Blog!

Naturally I went with a red and turquoise colour scheme. Heh.

I added a bunch of Wild Orchid Craft goodness. The Ribbon Girl twill stripe ribbon and navy twine as well as a GORGEOUS flower from a page I recently came across of FB. Search for PETAL LU. Amazing handmade (from start to finish) paper flowers.

I'd like to enter this card into these challenges:
- Some Odd Girl - April Sketch Challenge
- Alphabet Challenges - F for Fantasy
- Die Cuttin Divas - Flowers

Thank you for stopping by. I'm off to do a little bit of colouring before I tryyy and have an early night! :) xo
